Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) has reopened its Express Parking lot.

Reopening the lot provides 1,400 additional parking spaces for passengers in the run-up to the summer, as air travel continues to rebound. Express Parking has been closed since March 2020 due to the reduction in flight numbers during the pandemic.

“The reopening of our Express Parking option will offer added parking capacity for our travellers as we approach the busy summer travel season,” said Ricky Smith, executive director for BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. “As passenger traffic grows, we are working with our airport partners to provide a positive travel experience for our customers.”

Express Parking offers an additional option for BWI Marshall customers that is close to the airport terminal, with frequent shuttle service and a daily rate of $10. It is a touchless service, with credit card-only payments.

The reopening is an indication of improving passenger traffic at BWI Marshall Airport: passenger traffic rebounded strongly in 2021, reaching 18.8 million for the year, an increase of 68% compared to 2020. BWI Marshall remains the busiest airport in the region.

Further growth is expected in 2022, as more international and domestic service resumes. Three new airlines – PLAY, Icelandair and Avelo – are starting service at BWI Marshall this year. Returning international airlines in 2022 include British Airways, Air Canada and Condor.
