Maryland Governor Highlights BWI Expansion

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan touted Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and its new $48 million Concourse A Extension project during a tour of the airport this week.

The 55,000 square-foot, five gate extension to Concourse A which serves Southwest Airlines features new airline holdrooms and jet bridges, upgraded restrooms, and three new food and retail concessions.

“BWI Marshall Airport serves as a critical engine for economic development and job creation,” said Hogan. “Our investment at BWI supports Maryland tourism and trade. As the state and the travel industry continue to recover, I want to thank our dedicated airport employees who have worked so hard to provide healthy, safe travel for our passengers.”

BWI officials note traffic has grown in recent weeks, with several days this spring among the busiest since the start of Maryland’s COVID-19 State of Emergency. On Thursday, May 13, the Transportation Security Administration screened 24,423 passengers at BWI, marking the busiest day since March 2020.
