BWI : Connecting Flight after International Arrival Jan 18, '19 Comments: 1

Baltimore Washington Airport Gate Connections

I will be arriving BWI on an international flight, then I have a connecting domestic flight. Upon arrival, after going through Customs & Immigration, will I be dumped outside the security area and have to go back through TSA to get to my domestic flight, or is there a way to stay in the security area. I will have a carry-on only.
All flights requiring immigration clearance use Concourse E. I'm not sure if you can remain inside the TSA perimeter if your connecting flight is on Concourse D or E. If your connecting flight is on Concourses A, B, or C then you definitely will have to exit security and re-enter. At this time, Concourses A, B, and C are connected and Concourses D and E are connected but there is no connection inside the TSA protected area between the two groups of gates. The airport is in one building so moving from one concourse to another on the public side of the airport is pretty simple.


To make life easier when determining the gate for your connecting flight:

Concourses A, B, and C: Southwest, American, and Contour
Concourses D and E: All other airlines

BWI : Help with luggage Oct 06, '18 Comments: 1

Baltimore Washington Airport Traveler Help

I have recently started using a walker and need to know how to get my luggage to check in when I am dropped off at the airport. Is it possible to arrange for a skycap to meet me? Should my husband park the car and accompany me to the desk? (He won’t be traveling with me.) I assume that when I return, there will be someone who can help me get my luggage out to the curb for pickup.

Thanks.
There are skycaps at BWI. You can ask the folks at the ticket counter to call one for you when you are ready to go. There is no charge for skycap service although tipping is generally expected.

The airline will call for a skycap to assist you from the plane to baggage claim once you arrive -- just ask at the ticket counter. It doesn't hurt to mention it to the flight attendant as well.

how long will it take to walk from GATE A6 to GATEB6 at the Baltimore airport
It all depends on how fast you walk as you can stay inside the TSA perimeter to travel between gates. Here is a link to the terminal map from BWI's website:
