More passengers took wing from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport in 2012 than either of the three big airports that serve the Washington region, according to figures released Tuesday.

BWI’s almost 22.7 million passengers were a 1.9 precent increase over 2011, according to data released by Airports Council International. Passenger traffic at Dulles International Airport fell almost 3 percent in 2012 to 22.4 million. Reagan National Airport saw a 4.2 percent passenger increase to 19.3 million.
