Dulles has significant capacity for future growth. With minor expansion, the current facilities could accomodate 45 million annual passengers (22.5 million enplanements). With all future facilities in the master plan constructed, the airport could accomodate 70 million annual passengers (35 million enplanements) operating out of 250 airline gates. The current four-runway configuration has a capacity of up to 600,000 aircraft operations per year. With a future fifth runway constructed, the airfield capacity could increase to 1 million aircraft operations per year.
