About Boston Logan Airport

Boston's Logan Airport has a poor reputation for being difficult to navigate for those who live outside of the city. Still, it's been considerably easier since the Big Dig project connected I-90 to the airport. This guide will teach you all you need to know about getting to BOS, parking options, about the terminals and familiarize you with the Boston Logan Airport Map.

With the airport being pretty close to downtown, driving to the airport is a viable option as long as you have a parking spot. For this purpose, the airport offers both long-term and short-term parking onsite. There are also several offsite BOS parking options nearby.

Logan started off as Jeffrey Field in 1923, following a local campaign encouraging companies to send mail by air. Originally only an airfield, it was primarily utilized by the United States Army. The first commercial hangar was built in 1925, and the general manager is credited with coining the word "airport." In 1943, the airport was renamed General Edward Lawrence Logan Airport.

Boston Logan Airport Terminals

Boston Logan International Airport has four terminals: A, B, C, and E, which are located on the airport's north, south, and east ends.

A ring road branches off I-90, enabling automobile access to all terminals and parking structures opposite the terminals.

The terminals are all linked by walkways, some within the guarded area and others outside.

How to get around the terminals at Boston Logan

Shuttle Bus

Shuttle buses connecting the terminals, the rental car facility, and the airport station are provided by BOS Airport. These buses run in both directions. Six bus lines run typically every five to six minutes:

Walking

You can use the several walkways provided outside of the secure area to walk among the terminals.

Inside the secure area, passengers who have connecting flights between Terminals E and C are permitted to move freely. However, passengers arriving on an overseas aircraft are not permitted to enter the secure area since they are required to clear customs and immigration upon arrival. This places them outside of the restricted area.
