Holiday travel is upon us. It's a busy time, but we want you to enjoy your airport visit.

Please be patient and arrive early. We recommend arriving 2 hours prior to your scheduled domestic departure and 3 hours prior to international departure. This allows plenty of time for parking, ticketing and check-in, security checkpoints and anything else you may need to take care of prior to boarding your plane. Please note that airport shuttle delays are possible due to driver shortages. 

We hope you enjoy your visit. If you'd like to reach our Customer Service team, call 410-859-7683 or email Lost and Found information is available here.

Thank you for including BWI Marshall Airport in your travel plans.
