Dulles Airport At 50

As Washington Dulles International Airport marks its 50th anniversary, we look at how its growth reflects that of the region and explore what's new at the airport for passengers.

When President John F. Kennedy cut the ribbon that opened Washington Dulles International Airport 50 years ago, the Concorde, full-body scanners and the AeroTrain were unheard of. Today, the airport reflects not only the growth of the region, but the events of the world. Airport Manager Christopher Browne joins Kojo to examine the passenger experience at Dulles and explore how travel will change in the future.
