Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) Thurgood Marshall Airport delivers an easy-in, easy-out experience

Located just 20 minutes from downtown, Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) Thurgood Marshall Airport delivers a traveler-pleasing, easy-in, easy-out experience that means exceptional convenience for your meeting, event and convention attendees. 

With more than 300 daily non-stop departures, flights to 80 domestic and international destinations, and easy access by taxi, shuttle, rail or light rail, BWI is the ultimate in efficiency. 

Ranked #1 by in its 2016 list of “Top 10 Surprisingly Great Airports in America,” citing proximity to Baltimore, low airfares and top-quality concessions.

And now the BWI Marshall experience is even better. A recently-completed $125-million project expands food and retail offerings and adds a new, eight-lane security checkpoint to serve both domestic and international travelers. 

The upgrade also created a new, secure connector between two BWI concourses for an expected expansion in international service. (British Airways recently began using the technologically advanced 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft on its BWI-to-Heathrow daily non-stop flights.) 

Future airport improvements include a planned $8-million makeover for the BWI Marshall rail station, which provides both Amtrak and MARC (Maryland Area Regional Commuter) service to Baltimore’s downtown Camden Yards station and Penn Station in the Mount Vernon-Station North neighborhood. 

Rated best U.S. airport for healthful meal options by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in 2014, noting that 92% of airport restaurants serve nutritious options for travelers. 

As flight offerings are expanded and visitors spread the word on their positive travel experiences, BWI Marshall has been setting new passenger traffic records every year. A major Southwest Airlines hub, the airport also has seen non-stop service additions from other carriers — including links from Los Angeles, Seattle and San Diego by Alaska Air; connections to Tampa and Fort Myers by Spirit Airlines; and smaller-city service by Allegiant Air to locations like Ashville, NC, and Tulsa, OK.    

Convenience, on-time performance, flight selection, low-fare options and superior amenities make BWI Marshall Airport the perfect gateway for your attendees, ensuring a great start to your next event.
