Boston Logan International Airport is huge, with a workforce comprising 16,000 people staffing the four large terminals. All terminals (A, B, C and E) are connected by pre-security shuttle buses, and Terminals A, B and E also have pre-security moving walkways. Terminal E handles all international flights to Boston Logan, while Terminal C is rapidly becoming exclusive to JetBlue flights.
Boston Logan International Airport is a state-of-the-art facility, and passenger experiences are mostly pleasant and hassle-free. There are a variety of duty-free shops and restaurants, art exhibitions, and other amenities to keep passengers entertained, however the most popular attraction is the 9-11 Memorial, a 2.5-acre site dedicated to the passengers and crew aboard the two planes that departed from Boston on the day of the tragedy. The glass sculpture is sombre, but a must-see for passengers flying into Boston.
The airport is situated four miles (6km) northeast of Boston.
