Events to be held promoting use of transit to BWI

Baltimore-Washington International Airport and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are co-hosting events to encourage the use of public transit to the airport.

The events, which will include live jazz and promotional giveaways, are to be held at Washington Metro stops. The first is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. July 12 at Metro Center in Washington; noon to 3 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Rosslyn, Va., station; and noon to 3 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Greenbelt station.

The B30 Express Metro bus runs between the Greenbelt Metro station and BWI every 40 minutes, seven days a week. A one-way trip costs $2.

Anne Arundel and Howard County residents also can connect to Washington's Metro system by riding light rail to the BWI Business District stop to board the BWI Express bus.

Commutair to offer flights to White Plains, N.Y.

Continental Connection carrier Commutair is launching service Sunday between Baltimore-Washington International Airport and White Plains, N.Y.

The carrier will operate three roundtrip flights daily. Commutair offers connections beyond White Plains through its Albany hub. One other carrier at BWI - Boston-Maine Airways - offers service to White Plains.

More controls in place for security-check traffic

During peak travel times, passengers of three airlines may be processed through security according to flight times, if necessary, to avoid delays on Pier D.

The airlines are USAirways, American Airlines and Air Tran Airways. Peak travel times include Monday and Friday mornings and holidays.

After checking in luggage, passengers should proceed to security as they normally would and listen for an airline representative to call their flight.

Travelers are advised to check in 1 1/2 hours before flight times.
