Boston Logan Prepares for Winter Breaks

BOSTON –   The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) is expecting an increase in passengers at Boston Logan International Airport due to upcoming vacation weeks at Massachusetts and New Hampshire public schools this month. Massport is providing the following recommendations and travel tips to make the airport experience less stressful and more enjoyable for those flying out of Boston Logan.

Travel recommendations

Massport is urging people to check the Massport website and FlyLogan app for up to date parking conditions in the coming weeks as parking at Boston Logan and Logan Express sites will be near capacity due to the anticipated increase in passengers. As always, Massport encourages all passengers to take an HOV mode to and from the airport. There are options from every direction, including the MBTA’s Blue and Silver Line, water ferry, Logan Express, and private bus options from Cape Cod to Maine.

Logan Express serves five locations including Framingham, Woburn, Braintree, Peabody at the North Shore Mall and Back Bay. Both the Back Bay Logan Express and MBTA Silver Line services from Boston Logan to the city are FREE.
