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
