NORTH AMERICAN AIRPORTS SPECIAL : BWI - BALTIMORE WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL

Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport, while owned, financed and operated by the State of Maryland, has over the past 8 years been handling more of the Washington metropolitan area traffic than Dulles or Reagan (Washington National) airports. Southwest Airlines serves as BWI’s major carrier, accounting for 47% of the airport’s passenger traffic. This article discusses BWI’s future development, and focuses on the new Terminal A/B which officially opened in May 2005. The terminal is one of the first major airport passenger terminals to open with a ‘post September 11” design, bringing features such as a state-of-the-art in-line baggage screening system and additional passenger screening checkpoints. Additional improvements at the airport that are directed at reducing congestion in the terminal area include widening of access roads, deploying a traffic management system, and opening a new parking garage that features a parking information and guidance system.
