Baltimore-Washington International Airport

Baltimore/Washington International Airport serves the Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC metro-region. Its IATA Airport Code is BWI.

Located near Friendship Church in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, 10 miles south of Baltimore, Maryland and 30 miles north of Washington, D.C, Friendship Airport was opened in 1950. The airport was renamed in 1973, and major remodeling began in 1974 and was completed in 1979. The airport is now a hub for Southwest Airlines and served about 20 million passengers in 2002. It is also the pilot airport for new security technologies in the wake of War on Terrorism, and thus passengers may find exceptionally long waits here. The airport has been a backdrop in numerous films, including Broadcast News.

Baltimore/Washington International Airport has 5 Piers (Pier A is under construction).
