Please allow additional time if using shuttles to travel between the terminal, parking lots and rail station as shuttle delays are possible. Travelers should plan to arrive at the terminal 2 hours before scheduled domestic departure.
The deadline to comply with new federal security standards has been extended to May 7, 2025.
On that date, travelers 18 years of age or older will need to present a Real ID-compliant driver’s license or ID card, state-issued enhanced driver’s license or another TSA-acceptable form of identification at airport security checkpoints. Maryland residents can check their Real ID compliance using the Real ID Lookup Tool provided by Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA).
In the video below, from a media event at BWI Marshall Airport in late 2019, MDOT MVA Administrator Chrissy Nizer describes a scenario of a passenger attempting to travel without a REAL ID after the implementation deadline.
