COMMENTARY: Make Washington, D.C. trips accessible for all students

The Washington, D.C. metropolitan region is the most expensive air travel market because of the perimeter rule limits. Dulles International Airport (IAD), another Washington, D.C.-area airport that we’ve flown into many times, costs an average of $500 per ticket – the highest average ticket price in the nation. These prices matter – especially for students like mine where our student body is 95% Latino.
