Rouse and Company radio show highlights BWI job opportunities
The variety and diversity of employment opportunities at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will be showcased on today's live broadcast of the Rouse and Company show on WQSR-FM 105.7. The show will be aired from 5: 30 a.m. to 10 a.m. from the airport's Observation Gallery.
As radio personality Steve Rouse weathers his "mid-life crisis" and looks for a new career, he'll interview representatives from, among others, Southwest Airlines, British Airways, the USO, Maryland Aviation Administration and U.S. Customs. BWI is the first of several venues the radio station will visit during the "job search."
Web site, telephone line list carriers
BWI Airport officials remind travelers to access its Web site, www.bwiair port.com, or call 1-800-I FLY for help determining which carriers serve their destination city if an airline shutdown or other disruption should occur.
Officials said that about 77 of 350 daily flights in and out of BWI are U.S. Airways, including MetroJet jet service, and 70 daily commuter flights are operated by U.S. Airways Express. Together with the commuter service, U.S. Airways accounts for about 30 percent of BWI's business, airport officials said.
Travelers coming to BWI from other airports in search of alternatives can use Amtrak service along the East Coast to and from the BWI rail station and Maryland Rail Commuter trains with a free five-minute shuttle ride to the airport terminal.
The SuperShuttle door-to-door van service is also available to and from suburban Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, as well as taxis and limos.
