Firkin & Flyer Adds British Flavor to BWI Marshall Airport

International Restaurant, Pub, and Lounge Now Open on B/C Connector

A new, inviting dining option is now open for travelers at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The Firkin & Flyer offers a comfortable restaurant, bar, and lounge modeled after a traditional neighborhood British pub. Located on the B/C Connector near Concourse C, the Firkin & Flyer includes a large, 3,700-square-foot dining area and bar, along with a separate 1,075-square-foot lounge.

“We remain committed to excellent service for our travelers, including an exciting, high-quality food and retail program,” said Ricky Smith, Chief Executive Officer for BWI Marshall. “We know the Firkin & Flyer, with its authentic English pub atmosphere, will be a popular destination for our passengers.”

The Firkin & Flyer offers an extensive, traditional British pub menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Recent improvements and growing air service on Concourse C have increased the demand for added concessions opportunities. The B/C Connector is open to BWI Marshall travelers on concourses A, B, and C. Airlines that fly from gates near the Firkin & Flyer include: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airways and US Airways.

“Firkin & Flyer brings British flavor across the pond to Charm City and we’re excited to offer a new option for those looking to relax with some great food and drinks in a unique, inviting, atmosphere,” said Brett Kelly, vice president of AIRMALL Maryland, the concessions developer at BWI Marshall.

The Firkin & Flyer joins the award-winning food and retail concessions program at BWI Marshall. In recent years, concessions at BWI Marshall have received awards and recognition from a number of independent organizations. Last year, BWI Marshall was ranked the best U.S. airport for healthful meal options by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
