Land Around Dulles Eyed for Revenue Growth

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The land surrounding Dulles International Airport is being eyed as a way to increase revenue at the airport which has not seen a projected increase in passengers.

The head of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority laid out the plans for revenue growth during a presentation Wednesday to the authority's board.

Authority President and CEO Jack Potter said after the presentation that there are not any specific plans for developing about 3,000 acres surrounding the airport. However, Chief Operating Officer Margaret McKeough told the board that when Metro's Silver Line extension reaches the airport in a few years the land will become more valuable.

The airport has spent billions on renovations and expansion over the past decade but has not seen a projected passenger increase.
