The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) is expecting heavy passenger travel at Boston Logan International Airport during the upcoming February school break, Friday, February 16, through Sunday, February 25, 2007. Massport advises the traveling public to check with their airline for first hand flight information and to allow themselves thirty (30) minutes additional commuting time to get to the airport. Because of the expected heavy travel, Massport is anticipating the need for satellite parking during this period.
As an alternative to driving to and from Boston Logan, Massport offers express bus service from Braintree (south), Framingham (west), Peabody and Woburn (north). During the February school break, Massport is offering a special weekly rate of $44 for up to two weeks stay for travelers that enter the parking lot from 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, February 15, through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, February 22. This parking rate does not apply to the Framingham service.
Full service bus terminals and secure parking are available at each location and kids under 12 ride free. Braintree, Framingham and Woburn buses depart every 30 minutes and Peabody departs hourly. For more information on Logan Express visit www.flylogan.com.
To help lessen delays at the security checkpoints, the TSA has launched a public service campaign entitled, 3-1-1 for Carry Ons, that advises travelers on the quantity of liquids, gels and aerosols allowed in carry-on luggage.
