This article focuses on the annual audited financial report of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority which indicates a 22.8 million dollar increase in its operating revenues for the 12 months of 2002, a 7.26 percent boost over 2001 levels. The report attributed the improvement in 2002 passenger levels at National Airport to the lifting last year of federal restrictions on flights at the airport. Immediately after the September 11, 2001 hijackings, National Airport was closed and did not reopen until October 4, 2001, when the government allowed limited commercial air carrier activity to resume. Other reasons for the rise in operating revenues include a 14.68 percent increase in landing fees and a 9.74 percent rise in concession revenues.
