Alaska Airlines Lands at Terminal A On June 27
Alaska Airlines, which flies nonstop to Seattle and Portland, Oregon from Boston Logan, will relocate from Terminal B to Terminal A on Saturday, June 27.
“Massport is pleased that Alaska’s passengers who fly the airline nonstop to the Pacific Northwest will be able to enjoy the benefits of Terminal A,’’ said Edward C. Freni, Massport’s Director of Aviation.
Terminal A is the world’s first LEED certified airline terminal. Terminal A received LEED certification in 2006, one year after opening. It was constructed with sustainable materials such as pre-cast concrete, panels of wood from renewable forests, and recycled products. The terminal uses 50 percent less water for irrigation and 30 percent less in bathrooms; it has special storm water filtration devices. It also has efficient windows which reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Lights automatically dim in daylight, so natural light can be used to reduce energy usage.
Alaska passengers will enjoy numerous food and beverage options in Terminal A including Au Bon Pain, Chocolate Bar, Dunkin’ Donuts, Famous Famiglia, Fresh City, Fuddrucker’s, Game On! Gourmet on the Fly, Harpoon Tap Room, Legal’s Test Kitchen, Lucky’s/Lucky Express, Panda Express, Phillips Seafood Express, Starbucks and Wendy’s. Shopping outlets include Airport Wireless, Borders, Bluwire, Brookstone, Duty Free Americas, Johnston & Murphy, L’Occitane, New England Collections, Newslink, and Taxco Sterling.
All flights will operate from Terminal B on June 26 and the airline will move to Terminal A overnight. At the same time, Massport personnel will change all roadway and terminal signage to reflect the move. Taxi, car services, shuttle bus drivers and all ground transportation outlets have been notified of the move.
Alaska Airlines has two daily nonstops to Seattle from Boston and one daily nonstop to Portland, Ore.
Boston Logan serves as the gateway to the New England region and offers nonstop service to 70 domestic and 31 international destinations and in 2008 handled 26.1 million passengers. Boston Logan is the Air Line Pilot Association’s Airport of the Year for 2008 because of its commitment to safety. Over the past decade, the airport has spent $4.4 billion on a modernization program that includes new terminals, parking facilities, roadways and airport concessions, and has transformed the airport into a world-class 21st Century facility.
