BWI Marshall Airport is a critical part of the nation's transportation network and one of our region's largest economic drivers. As an important measure to protect public health, we want to encourage social distancing.
Here a few steps we are taking to keep the traveling public and airport employees safe:
- In accordance to Governor Larry Hogan's March 19 directive, access to the BWI Marshall Airport terminal is restricted to ticketed passengers and badged employees only
- Those picking up arriving passengers are urged to use our Cell Phone Lot
- Discouraging any cash-based handling at airport restaurants and retail shops (concessions info here)
- Blue tape markers, spaced 6 feet apart, are in place in front of food and beverage units to use as distance guides
- Following a March 17 directive from Governor Hogan, our sit-down restaurants and bars have suspended dine-in services
- Carry-out service will be offered, where available
- Seating in food courts has been rearranged in a manner that promotes social distancing
- We have coordinated with TSA to close some lanes at security checkpoints in order to provide additional separation between passenger awaiting processing
- We are working with our airline partners to utilize every other ticket counter, when possible, to process passengers required to check bags
- We also urge airlines to minimize check-in lines as best they can
- To reduce the number of people gathering in the airport security badging office, employees are temporarily allowed to renew their security badges without having to report to the security office in-person
- Those riding BWI Marshall Airport shuttle buses are urged to enter/exit the buses using the rear doors
