Weekly Flight Guide

Summer schedule from April to October. Winter schedule from November to March.

With so much to see and do, a good place to start would be The National Mall. With the U.S. Capitol building at one end, the Lincoln Memorial at the other, and the Washington Monument and a number of the city’s most famous museums in between, this 2-mile boulevard showcases some of the key landmarks. If the 2-mile walk is not for you, why not explore the city on a sightseeing tour by bus, bike or segway? You can even take a boat tour along the Potomac River. Not to be missed, of course, is a trip to The Capitol, which is home to the House of Representatives and the Senate. Another building you will not want to miss is The White House, the official residence and workplace of the US President.

The city is home to 19 Smithsonian Museums, all of which have free admission. Explore art galleries and Washington's National Zoo — you're truly spoiled for choice no matter what you’re interested in. Some of the city’s top rated museums that are not to be missed include The National Air and Space Museum, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the National Museum of Natural History, the largest natural history museum in the world.

Washington D.C. is more than the nation's capital — it's often referred to as the nation’s capital of food. Why not explore some of the city’s neighbourhoods that are best known for their cuisine? Georgetown, DuPont Circle, Penn Quarter and Adams Morgan are all renowned for having some of the best eateries and bars in the city. Try an iconic D.C. half-smoke, or opt for Chesapeake blue crabs, often transformed into some of the best crab cakes that you will every try.
