Md. officials downplay report of BWI sale

By Washington Post Editors

Maryland officials are downplaying a report that the state is interested in selling BWI Airport or in an initial public stock offering involving the facility.

Maryland Department of Transportation spokesman Jack Cahalan told The Baltimore Sun that just because the state made a long-term lease deal for the Seagirt Marine Terminal at the port of Baltimore, that doesn't mean others are imminent — particularly at the airport.

O'Malley was quoted Thursday on the Financial Times' Web site, saying the state is open to acquisition offers for Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and would also consider the possibility of an IPO.

Cahalan said there is “no proactive effort by the administration” to change the airport's status.
