American Eagle to start service to Boston on May 1

American Eagle will begin service between BWI and Boston's Logan Airport on May 1 with five daily round-trips on 37-seat, Embraer-135 regional jets.

American Eagle's regional jets are powered by two Rolls-Royce engines, making them among the quietest aircraft in the industry, company officials say.

A regional affiliate of American Airlines, the service offers passengers leather seats in a one-by-two seating arrangement.

Flights from BWI will depart at 6:30 a.m., 9 a.m., 11:05 a.m., 2:50 p.m. and 5 p.m. Arrival times at BWI from Boston are 8:20 a.m., 10:35 a.m., 2:20 p.m., 4:20 p.m. and 6:45 p.m.

Concourse A extension might prompt delays

Airport officials advise travelers to plan ahead if picking up passengers in the evening at Baltimore-Washington International Airport for the next two weeks because preliminary work for the Concourse A curbside extension has begun.

The lower-level roadway at BWI will be reduced from four lanes to two in front of the terminal between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. each day for about two weeks. The outer lane, next to the BWI parking garage, and the inner lane, closest to the terminal, will remain open while the two middle lanes are closed to remove islands from the roadway.

During construction hours, lighted signs with directional arrows will direct drivers to open lanes while the two middle lanes will be blocked with construction barrels.

BWI patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the free first half-hour of parking in the BWI garage when meeting passengers and helping them with their luggage.

Information regarding construction and changes in traffic patterns will be updated and made available on the airport's toll-free telephone service, 1-800-I-FLY-BWI, and online at When driving within a 5-mile radius of BWI, travelers can tune their car radios to 1040-AM for parking information and construction updates.
