BOSTONThe Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) is excited to welcome thousands of runners and spectators to Boston Logan International Airport for the 128th running of the Boston Marathon, as well as those traveling for April school vacation. Massport expects an increase in passengers next week and is providing the following tips and recommendations to make the airport experience less stressful and more enjoyable.

Transportation recommendations:

  • Travelers should be aware that due to the increase in passengers, parking at Logan as well as Logan Express sites will be near capacity;
  • Up to date parking conditions at Logan are available on the Massport website and the FlyLogan app;
  • For those taking Logan Express, it is strongly encouraged to be dropped off and picked up at the site;
  • As always, Massport encourages all passengers to take a transit 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 and Back Bay;
  • Both the Back Bay Logan Express and Silver Line 1 services from Logan Airport to the city are FREE;
  • More information about the variety of transportation options to and from Logan can be found here:

General travel tips:

  • Passengers should download the FlyLogan app, which is free and has information including flight status, Logan Express e-tickets, transportation and parking information, virtual customer service, maps of the airport, and BOS2Go – an order ahead service for pick up from various restaurants;
  • Pack smart. TSA has a full list on their website of items that can and cannot be taken onboard flights:
  • Passengers should arrive two hours early for domestic flights and three hours early for international;
  • There may be periods of robust activity at the TSA checkpoints throughout the day, but those lines generally move quickly;

Though the weather for the upcoming week looks fine – it’s New England. As always, Massport encourages travelers to check with their airline before heading to the airport for the most updated information about their flight.
