About Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (IATA: BWI, ICAO: KBWI, FAA LID: BWI) is an international airport located in Linthicum, an unincorporated community in northern Anne Arundel County, Maryland, United States. The airport is 9 miles (14 km) south of downtown Baltimore and 32 miles (51 km) northeast of Washington, D.C. It is the busiest of three major airports serving the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area when measured by passenger count, the other two being Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. It is commonly referred to as BWI or BWI Marshall. The airport is named after Thurgood Marshall, a Baltimore native who was the first African American to serve as a judge on the U.S. Supreme Court. This airport also has a heavy population base from the Philadelphia metropolitan area and Harrisburg metropolitan area.

BWI is a focus city for Southwest Airlines, and is the second-largest airport by number of departures for that airline after Chicago–Midway. With a 71% market share in 2014, BWI also serves as a fortress hub for Southwest, and a small regional hub for Southern Airways Express. A record 25.1 million passengers traveled through BWI in 2016, an increase of 5.45% over the previous year. BWI was ranked as the 23rd-busiest airport in North America and the 75th-busiest airport in the world in 2014 by the number of passengers. BWI covers 3,160 acres (1,279 ha) of land.

In 2010, BWI was ranked as the best airport of its size (15–25 mil. passengers) in the world by the Airports Council International based on its 2009 Airport Service Quality survey. The airport also was ranked second for North American airports in the “Best Food and Beverage Program” of the 2010 Richard A. Griesbach Excellence in Airport Concessions Contest, sponsored by the Airports Council International.
