BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport has reopened its Express Parking lot just in time for the summer travel season.

The lot provides 1,400 additional parking spaces for travelers as air travel rebounds. The lot was closed in March 2020 due to low traffic in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic.
