Coffee bars, newsstands at BWI to open earlier

HMS Host Corp. and Hudson Group, the companies that operate restaurants, bars, newsstands and gift shops in the airport terminal, are opening some shops earlier to better serve passengers who must arrive two hours before their 6 a.m. flights out of BWI.

Hudson News on Concourses B, C and D and the Starbucks on Concourse C (at B&W Marketplace) now open at 4:30 a.m.; Starbucks on Concourse D opens at 5 a.m.; and the Food Court, Starbucks kiosks and City Deli on Concourse B and the Garden Cafe on International Concourse E open at 5:30 a.m. Earlier service (starting at 5:30 a.m.) at the International Pier E Starbucks Cart and Food Court is expected to begin Nov. 15.

Handicapped spaces in garage have been moved

Because of heightened security measures at BWI, handicapped spaces in the parking garage have been moved.

The garage has 49 designated handicapped spaces. Parking levels 1, 2, 5 and 6 each have 10 spaces, and level 4 has nine spaces.

The spaces are next to the most direct route to the terminal entrance.

Disabled customers may find it easier to take the elevator to the first floor, where "moving sidewalks" and elevators are located to assist them in the terminal. Passengers who require more help may dial "0" on a courtesy phone.
