Baltimore is served by three major airports: Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI; 1-800-435-9294 or 410-859-7111) in Maryland, and Washington Dulles International Airport (703-572-2700) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (703-417-8000) in Northern Virginia.
Just 15 minutes from downtown, BWI served 20.7 million passengers in 2006, and expects to grow to 30 million by 2010. Recently completed expansions and improvements resulted in 12,000 new parking spaces; new concourses and pedestrian bridges; moving sidewalks; a wider road in front of the terminal; and a monorail-style system connecting the airport, parking garages and the Amtrak/MARC Station.
