BWI wants $60 million in state spending to expand Concourse A for Southwest

BWI proposes expedited, $60 million concourse expansion for Southwest Airlines - Capital Gazette

FTA: five new gates, waiting areas, food/retail, restrooms, with room to handle 737 MAX8's, wouldn't be ready until July 2020; SWA needs gates because they'll lose some to work on the baggage system

I thought this would've gotten more play here since BWI is the 2nd biggest airport in WN's system.

Either way, they got the money, with one catch. BWI has to come back to the Board of Public Works for additional approval to open more gates.

Maryland officials approve $60 million expansion at BWI Airport over Franchot's objections - Baltimore Sun

Whatever you think about the city or its government, the airport has had nothing to do with the city since 1972.
