Dulles International Airport opened its expanded international arrivals building Tuesday. The new 41,400-square-foot arrivals hall, which cost $77 million and doubles the capacity of the old facility, is expected to cut the time passengers spend in customs and immigration processing lines. Officials say the glitzy new facility expands the number of inspectors from 38 to 50 and has a higher ceiling, brighter lights, flat screens and an extended view of the rear of the main terminal.
