A world-class airport reflects a world-class region. Welcome to the primary airport serving New England, and one of the nation’s busiest airports despite operating in the second smallest footprint among the top 20 major American airports. Surrounded by Boston Harbor on three sides, we make the most of our 1,700-acre footprint. The four passenger terminals, A, B, C and E, are self-contained, each with its own ticketing, baggage claim, ground transportation service, free WiFi, and food and retail options. The terminals are connected to the central parking garage by a walkway system, and to public transportation with a free shuttle bus system. The Silver Line to South Station in downtown Boston is free as well. In all, there are 94 gates with contact jet bridges and nine regional jet gates at the airport, and more than 40 airlines fly nonstop to more than 100 domestic and international destinations. The safety and security of the tens of millions of passengers who use Logan each year and the 17,000 people who work here are our top priority. We strive to be a leader in teamwork, collaboration and new technology to make the airport safer, more secure and more environmentally friendly.
