As its name implies, Baltimore/Washington International Airport, located between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., serves both metropolitan areas. The airport's leading airline is Southwest with over 45 percent of all flights, but 26 other commercial airlines also offer flights for a total of 63 nonstop domestic destinations and 10 nonstop international destinations. As a low-cost alternative to other airports in the region, BWI's usage has dramatically increased in recent years putting a strain on existing terminal, roadway and parking facilities. To better meet the current and future needs of passengers and airlines, the airport is in the midst of a $1.8 billion expansion project. One recent addition is a free "cell phone lot" where people picking up passengers can park until they're called by the passenger instead of repeatedly circling the airport. The airport does promote circling of a different type - on foot or bike - on a 12.5 scenic trail that loops around the airport. The trail includes the Thomas A Dixon Jr. Aircraft Observation Area where you can view planes landing and taking off.
