Airports in Maryland
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) is located 30 miles (50km) from Washington DC, and just 10 miles (16km) from Baltimore. The airport is lauded as a stress-free alternative to the far busier Dulles International and Washington National Airports also located in the region. As a major hub for Southwest Airlines, Baltimore/Washington International Airport offers a wide range of options for connecting flights to destinations right across the United States. The airport has been used as a set for several Hollywood films - take a walk around and see if you can recognise any bits of it from movies such as Goldfinger and The Silence of the Lambs.
The airport is situated 10 miles (16km) south of Baltimore and 30 miles (50km) north of Washington.
