BWI expects to start next phase of international terminal expansion

BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is poised to begin work on the next phase of its international terminal expansion, a project in the works since 2015.

The state Board of Public Works will consider a $60 million construction contract with Baltimore-based Whiting Turner Contracting Co. to expand and renovate Concourse E, where international flights arrive and depart. The project would add six gates in that area and bring the total number to 14.

“International traffic has grown steadily at BWI in recent years,” said Jonathan Dean, a BWI spokesman. “We have had new airlines and service to new international destinations added in recent years.”

A record 24 million passengers flew from or to BWI at in 2015. They included a record 1.1 million passengers on international flights, marking the first year the airport served more than 1 million international passengers.
