Getting Baltimoreans to the BWI Airport to work has been “a major challenge,” Maryland Aviation Administrator Ricky Smith told The Baltimore Sun. Al Hutchinson, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore, weighed in on the issue. From The Sun’s coverage:
[He] called the airport a “gem and an economic engine” for the state that is a gateway through which many city visitors arrive.
“We want as many of our residents who are looking for work to be able to get to work,” he said. “I’m glad to hear there’s a conversation being had to close that gap.”
“If we can provide a transportation option, it’s definitely worth studying,” he said.
BWI is the 22nd busiest U.S. airport, with an average of 70,000 passengers per day and 90 domestic and international destinations, according to Smith.
