Boston’s Logan airport is located in the neighbourhood of East Boston, largely on land reclaimed from Boston Harbor. The airport serves as a Focus City for JetBlue and Delta Air Lines, while hosting a disproportionately large share of international airlines for an airport of its size. In particular, the airport has attracted several European low cost airlines such as WOW, Norwegian and Eurowings.
Getting Around: Logan has 4 terminals (A, B, C and E) which are connected by free shuttle buses. In addition, walkways connect the terminals but all of these options are outside security. Even within some of the terminals, some gates are segregated behind their own security checkpoint. All of this makes connecting between different airlines at Boston Logan a cumbersome process.
Terminal A is used by primarily by Delta and Southwest. Terminal B is home to American and United while Terminal C serves JetBlue and Alaska. Terminal E is the international terminal housing all international arrivals – including the major US airlines – and most of the departures for foreign airlines.
Relaxing: As with most airports today, Logan features a public art program with a variety rotating installations, generally with a focus on New England artists and themes. For a more contemplative experience, Boston Logan has erected a 9/11 memorial, in recognition as the departure point for two of the flights involved. The memorial is located near Terminal A, adjacent to the Boston Airport Hilton.
Dining: Legal Sea Foods is a Boston institution, and as pervasive as they are throughout Massachusetts, they are equally available in the airport with locations in Terminals A, B and C. You’re in Boston, so try the clam chowder. If you are in Terminal A and looking for a local beer, Harpoon’s Tap Room service from microbrews from the local brewery along with traditional pub food.
Wi-Fi: Service is available for free for 45 minutes sessions. You can renew the session an unlimited number of times by watching a brief commercial. The service is provided by Boingo, which also offers paid premium service.
