BALTIMORE (WJZ) — BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is looking to offer healthier options for passengers, including a gym and lower calorie items on their menus starting this fall.
“Passengers are looking to stay active and healthy when they’re on the road, they want to get their steps in and want some exercise before a flight,” says BWI spokesman Jonathan Dean.READ MORE: Star Spangled Celebration: Fourth Of July Fireworks Light Up Baltimore's Skyline Once Again
There are already two cardio trails inside the terminal, each one takes 20 minutes to complete. But now there will be a fitness center, as well.
“It will help to energize you, it’s really draining to be stuck in the airport all day,” says Greg Blakey, a traveler.
BWI restaurants are also on board with the healthier lifestyle, slimming down their menus.READ MORE: Bacteria Levels Prompt Recreational Water Advisory At Cox's Point Park
“We’ve been acknowledged as one of the best airports in the country for healthy food options,” Dean says.
“I love the idea of healthier foods,” says Katrina Campbell, another flyer.
