Big Terminal News For JetBlue In Boston

Just when you thought the dust had settled on construction in Boston, there’s more to come!

This week, the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan Airport, approved a plan that will allow us to take over all 24 gates in Terminal C by Summer 2014 — giving us the infrastructure to reach our goal of operating 150 daily departures, which will make our BOS operation roughly the same size as our JFK operation!

By moving United Airlines to Terminal B over the next 18 months, we will become the sole operator at Terminal C, and the only airline at Logan to have its own terminal — a huge nod to our successful growth in New England’s biggest city!

In addition to the airline shuffle, Massport will build a new post-security link between Terminal C and E, allowing our international customers to make seamless connections (not just from JetBlue arrivals, but also from our growing list of airline partners at BOS including Aer Lingus, American, Icelandair, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa, and Virgin Atlantic).

Massport’s proposed plan:

  • Provide JetBlue all 24 gates in Terminal C
  • Consolidate United’s Terminal A and C operations into Terminal B
  • Build a post-security connector from our “40s” gates to the main part of Terminal C
  • Build a post-security connector from Terminal C to Terminal E
  • Move Virgin America from Terminal B to a yet-to-be-determined space
  • Ultimately build connectors allowing customers to travel from Terminals A to E without going through security twice

    Why can’t ORH get just two flights a day while Boston gets 150 daily?! ORH-JFK in the AM and PM, and ORH-MCO in the AM on weekends…

    BOS to SWF(Stewart/Newburgh) It would give the option to connect. I don’t like using US Airways to PHL.

    That sounds great, EXCEPT I did enjoy being able to use the United (Previously Continetal’s Presidents Club)due to it being on the otherside of security, while waiting for a JetBlue flight. Perhaps it is time for JB to create a “Presidents” type club. I know I’m spoiled, but once you get used to these things……This would be moot if we can get JB into PVD.
