Winner Gets Gateway Designation for Reagan National Airport

VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Winner Aviation announced Wednesday that Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport has been approved as a Gateway Airport for aircraft wishing to fly into Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, D.C.

Winner Aviation applied for status last year as a Reagan Gateway Airport for its general aviation and flight department customers. The authorization permits Winner to provide its facilities and personnel for the Transportation Security Administration to conduct screenings at the Vienna Township airport.

Only flight departments that have been approved to fly into Reagan National can use the service at the regional airport here. Winner Aviation, which owns and operates corporate aircraft, is also now an approved flight department for flights to Reagan National. Winner will be able to take passengers directly from the Youngstown-Warren airport to Reagan National.

“We are pleased that we are approved as a DCA Gateway airport and we can provide our customers the convenience of flying from the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport directly into Reagan National Airport,” said Michael Hillman, director of flight operations at Winner Aviation. “Our customers’ drive time from DCA to the capital mall is now only a matter of minutes rather than an hour or more from surrounding airports.”
