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:
- Social distancing floor markers are added in a number of locations throughout the terminal, including at restaurants, retail shops and airline ticketing and boarding areas
- Plexiglas partitions have been installed at high-traffic, person-to-person areas, such as security checkpoint document check podiums, airline counters, airport restaurant and retail shop checkouts
- Those riding BWI Marshall Airport shuttle buses are urged to enter/exit the buses using the middle and rear doors
- 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
- Passengers are encouraged to use a mobile device for flight check-in and to retrieve boarding passes
- Sit-down restaurants and bars have either suspended dine-in services or are operating at up to 50% capacity
- Carry-out service will be offered, where available (see more info here)
- Seating in food courts has been rearranged in a manner that promotes social distancing
- Coordinating with TSA to close some lanes at security checkpoints in order to provide additional separation between passengers awaiting processing
- Working with our airline partners to utilize every other ticket counter, when possible, to process passengers required to check bags
- 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
