Dulles Airport has been making a concerted effort to improve over the last few years. The parts of the A/B concourse (there was some renaming in there a few years ago) that caters to international travel, American Airlines, JetBlue, Delta and Southwest has been nice for over a decade. However, concourse C and D have been a blight for years.
Recently, they’ve started upgrading the food and retail options in both concourses. It’s a very slow process, but they’re definitely making progress. But, one thing the airport has lacked as long as I can remember is a children’s play area. Not anymore:
The majority of domestic travelers will never see the play area since it resides in Concourse B across from gate B71. That’s right amongst the American Airlines gates (and JetBlue, Delta and Virgin) so I should see it quite a bit.
It looks like NASA is the key sponsors as opposed to a local business, airline or contractor. That’s not terribly surprising for the DC area.
Making Airports Fun
It’s great to see Dulles add something so simple. I really enjoy watching airplanes and my kids do too, sometimes. The rest of the time, they’re just kids. They love having somewhere to play. And now, they’ve got that at our home airport!
