Airports in Massachusetts
Boston Logan International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the US and a hub for flights to New England, serving more than 25 million passengers on flights to Boston each year. Located just three miles (4.8km) northeast of central Boston, convenient public transport into the city includes trains, ferries, buses, shuttles, and taxis.
The airport is huge, with a workforce comprising something like 16,000 people staffing the four large terminals. Pre-security shuttle buses connect all terminals (A, B, C, and E), and Terminals A, B, and E also have pre-security moving walkways.
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.
Getting to the city
The Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority provides regular bus services for free, on the Silver Line, and a faster subway connection, on the Blue Line, to and from the city centre, costing about $2.65. Massport's free water transportation bus connects from all airport terminals to the Logan dock where private water taxis and public commuter boats are available to multiple destinations in the Boston Harbour.
