FBI in Loudoun = Access to the World

By: Susan VanEpps

If the General Services Administration chooses Loudoun for the FBI’s new headquarters, direct access to the world will be just down the road via Washington Dulles International Airport. Just minutes from eight potential FBI relocation sites, Washington Dulles offers 376 daily departures to 130 destinations within the U.S. and around the globe, including new nonstop service to Vancouver, Abu Dhabi, Brussels and Dubai.

IAD is one of the largest East Coast U.S. gateways to the Middle East, offering more than 40 weekly flights to seven cities in the Middle East and nonstop service to most major cities in Europe, Africa, South America and Asia. Dedicated roadway access, more than 24,000 public parking spaces and cell-phone enabled waiting lots also make getting to and out of IAD easy.

Also within easy drive is Leesburg Executive Airport, offering worldwide charters from its fixed-base operator ProJet Aviation. ProJet’s aircraft include the long-range Gulfstream G-IV Jet, which can shuttle up to 26 passengers 3,800 nautical miles per flight. Several companies also coordinate private jet and helicopter charters from aircraft onsite and within close proximity.

Locating the FBI headquarters within minutes of both Washington Dulles International Airport and Leesburg Executive Airport would allow agency staff much faster deployment in time-sensitive operations. For an organization dedicated to worldwide intelligence, a Loudoun location is a smart decision.
