About RIC - The Best Little Big Airport You’ll Ever Visit
It’s hard to believe, but we’ve been the gateway to Virginia’s Capital Region since 1927. Our central location attracts more than 3 million friends, family members and business visitors traveling to and from Fredericksburg, Williamsburg, Washington D.C., Charlottesville, Virginia Beach, and points to the east and west each year.
Going to Orlando? Not a problem. San Francisco, Dallas or London? No worries! We feature seven air carriers , each offering non-stop flights to major domestic destinations and connecting service to points around the globe.
If it’s been a while since you traveled through Richmond, you may not recognize us. Our $300 million renovation was designed to make your experience as convenient and stress free as possible. Entering and parking at the airport have never been easier, and our terminal has been transformed into a sleek, modern space with additional gates and ticketing counters.
It’s been said we’ve successfully balanced the sophistication of a large airport with the charm and convenience of a smaller one. We hope you’ll agree.
Ready to go? RIC is simply the most convenient and hassle-free option in the region.
