Logan International Airport was opened in 1923 on September 8th and was mainly used by the Massachusetts Air National Guard and the United States Army Air Corps. In the 1940s and 1950s, the airport underwent some significant expansion of the airport in land by 1,800 acres. This expansion was due to the rising demand for air travel. Later there was expansion of the terminals adding the present day Terminal B and C which were opened in the year 1949. The state renamed the airport in 1943 after Major General Edward Lawrence Logan who was a Spanish-American War officer from South Boston. The airport in 1952 became the first airport in the US to have an indirect rapid transit connection with the opening of the Airport Station on the Blue Line.

The airport became a transatlantic gateway after the Second World War and in the late 1940s it had begun operating a Boston-Shannon-London service operated by American Overseas Airlines. In the year 1970, there was the introduction of the Jumbo jet when Pan Am started daily Boeing 747 flight to London Heathrow. The first major runway expansion was the addition of Runway 14/32 which was opened in November 23rd, 2006 which had been proposed in 1973 but there was delays due to court orders.

The 168 onboard survived the crash but the aircraft was written off.

 On January 23, 1982, World Airways Flight 30 flying from Newark to Boston made a non-precision instrument approach to runway 15R and landed 850 meters past the displaced threshold on an icy runway. The crew realized the aircraft won’t stop on the remaining runway and steered it off the side of the runway to avoid the approach light pier, and slid into the shallow water of Boston Harbor.

From the accident, two passengers who were a father and son were never found and are presumed to have been swept out to sea

Incidents

On the 2nd of October, 1954, a Massachusetts Air National GuardF94 Starfire encountered an engine failure and crashed near Logan Airport. First Lieutenant James O. Conway who was flying the plane sacrificed his life by veering the plane into a bank on Bayswater Street in East Boston.

 On the 9th of June, 2005, a US Airways Flight and an Aer Lingus Flight by a whisker avoided collision when they were cleared for takeoff nearly at the same time on intersecting runways by two different controllers. The crew of the US Airways flight spotted the oncoming Aer Lingus jet and avoided a collision by keeping their own aircraft on the runway past their normal rotation point, allowing the Aer Lingus flight to pass over them. Both flights lifted off safely and continued to their destinations without further incident.

 On January 7, 2013, ground crew workers noticed smoke coming out from the battery compartment in a parked Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner at the gate.

Boston Logan International Airport Terminals

Boston Logan International Airport has 4 passenger terminals, lettered as A, B, C & E. it also has 102 gates. All international flights apart from flights from destinations with U.S. Customs and Border Protection preclearance touch down using Terminal E for customs screening since the other terminals do not have customs screening facilities. 

Terminal A

This terminal replaced a pre-existing building that was there from pre 1970’s which once occupied that spot. It was opened for passenger use in March 16, 2005. This terminal is largely divided into the main terminal and a satellite terminal. Both are connected by a pedestrian tunnel from underground. The new Terminal A (redesigned) was advanced under an exclusive facility lease between Massachusetts Port Authority and Delta. Later into September 14, 2005, Delta filed a petition that they were bankrupt, and consequently had to reduce the number of gates it had leased. Terminal A has 2 Delta Clubs, one located the 3rd floor of the satellite building, and the other one opened at the place of the earlier Continental Presidents Club inside the main terminal building.

 In December 2018, there was an announcement made by Delta, that there would be an extension of routes to take place in 2019. This resulted to the displacement of the Southwest to Terminal B, and Delta regaining all of Terminal A. 

Terminal B

This terminal was opened in 1974, but started major operations in 1979 when US Airways widened their operations. Major expansions were designed and done by HNTB. Since then, there were numerous small developments including expansion of the passenger lobby that were undertaken between 1995 and 2000. 

Terminal B was split into the northern and southern buildings until 2014, a parking garage being the rift between the two. Gates at the northern building were divided into two groups while those of the southern building were divided into three groups. The air transport service providers operating Terminal B are Alaska Airlines, Air Canada, American, Boutique Air, Southwest, Spirit, and United. Only two air transport service providers operate the lounges at Terminal B, and they are United and American. 

Terminal C

This terminal was the first to be opened at Boston Logan International Airport, and was opened in 1967 and underwent renovations in 1987, 2002 and 2005. Among the new introductions with these renovations is the post-security connection between Terminal C and Terminal E opened in summer 2016. This facilitated movement in between the two terminals, which was part of Massport’s plan. This terminal serves as the operation base for JetBlue, Aer Lingus and Cape Air. It also acts as the departure zone for Sun Country, with TAP Air Portugal only. 

The three gates at the north end of Terminal C that were formerly for Terminal D were renumbered and re-organized to be part of Terminal E in February 2006. There was a construction of an airside connector between Terminals E and C. 

Terminal E

This terminal is named after the former Governor of Massachusetts and U.S. Secretary of Transportation, John A. Volpe International Terminal. This terminal houses majority of international arrivals for Boston Logan International Airport hence it serves as an international terminal. This is in exclusion of flights from areas with U.S. border preclearance. In exclusion of Aer Lingus, Air Canada, TAP Air Portugal, and WestJet, most non-U.S. carriers depart from Terminal E. this terminal’s construction was completed in 1974, and underwent a modernization project in 1997 to improve the passenger handling facilities. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and DMJM Aviation designed the International Gateway Project and added 410,000 ft2 (38,000 m2) to the terminal in 2003, and the entire project was completed in 2008. 

This terminal has 12 gates and are assigned on operational basis. This means that no airline can claim ownership of any of these gates at this terminal. All the ticket counters and gates are shared among the carriers. Terminal E has several lounges like Virgin Atlantic’s Clubhouse and British Airways’ First Lounge. The ground level for this terminal is used for arrivals and customs, also via U.S. Customs and Border Protection the second for passport control via U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the third level of Terminal E is used for departures.
