In its first year of operation, Dulles Airport came quite close to matching income and passenger estimates. The airport was designed to avoid many of the problems experienced at other facilities. The land acquired is sufficient for all future expansion and should provide a noise barrier for neighboring communities. The terminal building is designed to allow passengers to move freely from ground transportation to the mobile lounges. The mobile lounges have proved to be highly reliable in bringing the passengers to and from the terminal and have reduced the distances that aircraft must taxi.
