First of three planned skywalks opens at airport

Some passengers at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will enjoy quicker and easier access to their cars and the main terminal this holiday season thanks to a skywalk that opened Tuesday.

The climate-controlled skywalk connects Level 6 of the hourly parking garage with a new mezzanine level of the airport's main terminal, near Concourse D. The skywalk also connects with an enclosed walkway system on Level 6 of the garage.

The aerial pedestrian bridge includes moving walkways, and new escalators and elevators connect the mezzanine level with the rest of the main terminal.

This skywalk is the first of three planned walkways scheduled to be built over the next two years as part of BWI's five-year, $1.8 billion expansion program. The remaining two skywalks are scheduled to open in the spring and in early 2005.

Volunteer entertainers sought for the holidays

Performers and entertainment groups are invited to volunteer to entertain passengers traveling through BWI during the holidays.

Entertainment will begin Dec. 12 and run through the New Year. Past participants include school and church choirs, and local country, pop and jazz bands.
