  1. Nice to have, but I’ll pass on the AirBus, thank you.

  2. Blossom Butt says:

    I think this is great news. Not having to travel to a larger airport, plus the direct flight for a lower price, makes the warm weather in FL a lot more accessible when the cold wind starts to blow.

  3. I fail to see the advantage of driving 95 miles to this airport than flying out of Dulles Get a 6 am out of Dulles, woosh you are gone.

    • Blossom Butt says:

      NONSTOP – You wouldnt have to go to Dulles it would be straight from Shenandoah

      • Another View says:

        Berryville to Dulles–34 miles

        Berryville to Weyers Cave–94 miles

        I’d rather go to Dulles

        • Blossom Butt says:

          I travel Berryville to Leesburg every day, normal speed, sometimes more, in non-traffic times. There is no way to get to Leesburg, travelling at 65 and under most of the way, in under 30 minutes. How you can get to Dulles in 34 is beyond me

  4. Mapquest says 41 miles to Dulles, 90 miles to Weyers Cave

    70 dollars one way, non stop, say 160 round trip (taxes and such). nonstop from dulles looks like much more.

    might be worth it, might be not. certainly worth looking into if you happen to be going to Orlando.

  5. It sounds very nice. I wish I would have known this before I made reservations for next year. Traveling a Saturday to Saturday stay. I guess I will still have to go to Dulles.
