Cheap Flights to California

Ever wish you could trade in the Beltway traffic, politics, and oppressive humidity of DC for the beauty of California for a little while?  Well, now’s your chance.  Virgin America just announced $119 non-stop one way fares from Dulles to Los Angeles and $139 non-stop one way fares from Dulles to San Francisco.  These rates are good for trips in August through October and must be booked one week in advance.  And there’s no catch– just a fantastic deal and a good excuse to leave DC for a little while.

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!

  2. I’m from cali but go to school in DC. Average roundtrip fare w/virgin is about $350 which is pretty good- but flying into LAX is a pain. I suggest Jet Blue flights- theyre fairly priced as well- from Dulles to Long Beach Airport (which is nice and small and much easier to deal with than LAX).
