Freni. “Boston Logan actively engages in social media to create a more personal connection with our customers and to create an awareness of events and promotions at the airport.”
“SATA is happy to partner with Boston Logan to develop creative marketing programs. This contest has the potential to boost the visibility of Portugal and the Azores in New England, and SATA’s excellent service to those destinations, “ said Nuno Puim General Manager of SATA USA.
