Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility


Known as “The Gateway to the Nation’s Capital,” Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility, Washington is the primary arrival and departure point for our nation’s civilian and military leaders to and from foreign destinations. Andrews carries out these functions through peace, crisis, and conflict. A wide range of current and emerging command, control and capabilities are employed to keep our leaders informed of current events while en route to their destination. In recent years, kings, queens, prime ministers and military leaders from more than 50 countries have been escorted to and from the United States via Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility, Washington and its aircraft.


The 89 AW, located at Andrews, is host to more than 60 different organizations including units from the Navy, Army, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve. Nearly 13,000 people live and work at Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility, Washington, including Active Duty, Guard, Reserve personnel and their families.


The 316th Wing (the base’s host wing) is responsible for maintaining emergency reaction rotary-wing airlift and other National Capital Region contingency response capabilities critical to national security and for organizing, training, equipping, and deploying combat-ready forces for Air and Space Expeditionary Forces. The wing also provides installation security, services and airfield management to support the President, Vice President, other U.S. senior leaders and more than 60 tenant organizations and federal agencies.
