All About BWI Airport

Address: 7050 Friendship Road BWI Airport, Maryland 21240-0766

Whether you’re starting your journey at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, arriving back home, or just passing through, you’ll find the essential services ready and without cost. There’s free Wi-Fi, for example. The service comes in 45-minute sessions, and you’re free to use as many sessions as you like. If you’d rather opt for greater bandwidth, a low-price fee-based service is also available.

For those traveling with children, family restrooms with changing tables are available throughout the terminals. BWI airport has been mindful of everyone’s needs: there are two special nursing areas for moms with infants on the upper and lower levels of Concourse C (It’s actually okay to nurse your baby anywhere in BWI!) And if you’re traveling with a service animal or pet, the airport has taken thought for them too with two Pet Relief Areas; seats for owners have been provided, along with disposal bags and receptacles for clean-up. One is at the end of Concourse E, the other in front of the Hourly Garage.

Dealing with Airport Angst

Air travel is not everyone’s cup of tea, and even if you typically enjoy flying, airport tedium can and does set in on occasion. If you feel the need to get away into a quieter space, the Meditation Room will be a port in the storm. It’s located on the upper level between the C and D concourse. You can read, drowse, pray, or just sit quietly and enjoy the stillness.

Learn Something New and Have Fun Too

If you’re traveling with children, let them work off some of their energy on the play equipment while you enjoy the aircraft exhibits at the BWI Observation Gallery. The Observation Gallery is located outside of the security checkpoint between the B and C Concourse, so it would be a great place to meet up with friends and family in the Baltimore area if you have a layover.

Sample Local Baltimore Favorites at These Fine Restaurants

If you’ve got a few days to spend in the area of Baltimore, keep an eye out for crab cakes, a local specialty. If you’re just passing through, though, you can still enjoy the real thing at Baltimore airport. Served with grace, patience, and an excellent draft beer, you'll find them at Obrycki’s Restaurant and Bar on Concourse B.

If you’d prefer a sports bar atmosphere, the Greene Turtle on Concourse D is just the ticket. The Greene Turtle has been around since 1976, so if you’re going to be in Baltimore frequently, sign up for the Greene Turtle rewards program which offers discounts, free meals, and other deals for loyal customers at any of their restaurants. They specialize in casual camaraderie with lots of great drinks and delicious finger food, along with items from the grill and their Hog Hammers Feast.

How Baltimore-Washington International Airport Got Its Name

The full name of BWI airport is the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Thurgood Marshall served as the 96th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1967 until 1991. He was the first African-American to serve in this capacity. Before becoming a Justice, he was a lawyer dedicated to fighting civil-right cases. Perhaps his most famous victory was the Brown v. Board of Education case, which brought about the desegregation of America’s schools. There’s a handsome exhibit in honor of Thurgood Marshall just next to the BWI Observation Gallery. You can learn more about this vibrant civil-rights activist at the exhibit.
