Flights to Washington DC
There's a lot more to this great capital than the White House
When you take one of our flights to Washington DC, you'll see it has some incredible iconic buildings, like Capitol Hill and the White House. And yes, there's a chance that you might even get to see the President.
But whatever you do, don't forget to make time for all the other brilliant sights that DC has to offer. See the original Declaration of Independence at the US National Archives, take a tram ride through the 446-acre Arboretum and catch a gig at the legendary 9:30 Club. And that's just for starters.
