    I have a flight from Ireland into Terminal E with a connection on JetBlue to Seattle in Terminal C. Aer Lingus says they will check my bags all the way through to Seattle. In Boston will I need to go through customs or any security gates?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. In Boston you will have to go through security in Terminal C.


    So I'm hoping to buy some Irish liqueur in the Irish airport to bring back to Seattle so it will be carry on. Since I have to go through security again in Boston will this not be possible?


    Correct, that won't be possible.


    If you want to buy some liquor in Ireland, buy it at a regular store and put it in your checked baggage.


  • Enough Connection Time?
    Mar 27, 2015
    Flying JetBlue to BOS arriving at 9:56pm in Terminal C. I need to collect my checked bags, and re-check in with Turkish Airlines in Terminal E. Turkish Airlines flight is leaving at 11:45pm. I spoke with JetBlue and they said that it should be enough time to connect flights even though it will be under two separate reservations; I am still a little hesitant. Is this enough time for the connection? Or, should I take an earlier JetBlue flight arriving into BOS at 6:44pm (which would give me an awfully long layover)?


    Is probably OK assuming it's on-time. It leaves you around 45 minutes to get off the plane, get your bags, and get them to Terminal E. It leaves no room for any delays of the first flight though.

    I will be arriving from Reykjavik on the new Wow Airlines flight landing at 5:30pm in Terminal E. My connecting flight (separate itinerary) is on Virgin America departing for SFO at 6:59pm. I know it's a tight connection, but is it doable? I have purchased seats on Wow Air, so I should be one of the first to deplane. Thanks for your help!


    It's only reasonably possible if you don't check any bags and check-in online for your Virgin America flight before leaving Iceland.


  • Is it enough time
    Mar 16, 2015
    I'm arriving to Boston, Terminal C on JetBlue at 8:13PM and need to catch the Icelandair, Terminal E, at 9:00PM. Is there enough time for me to pass through security and transport between the two terminals? Thanks!


    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together? Will you have checked baggage? If purchased together, it's barely enough time if you run. I personally would not have booked this.


    Thanks ZAP! Unfortunately, we've booked through a tour company and it's too late to change. Would you recommend taking carryon, instead of checking luggage, to speed up the process?


    I'm coming into terminal C on a JetBlue, and going out of terminal E on the Icelandair.


    If you did purchase the tickets together through a tour company then your bags should be checked through to Iceland, however, you will still need to absolutely sprint from Terminal C to Terminal E to get through security in time and it leaves absolutely no room for error if your JetBlue flight is even a bit late.

    I am flying Southwest from California,arriving Logan at 4:00. My next flight is on Delta to Shannon,leaving at 5:30. I have only carry on. Is that enough time? Do I need to go through security again? I believe Souhtwest is in Term.E and Delta in Term. A. I thought I read as of April 2015 Southwest will be moving to Terminal A,is that true?


    Delta doesn't fly from Boston to Shannon. The only airline that flies nonstop from Boston to Shannon is Aer Lingus. Please double check your itinerary. Yes, Southwest is moving to Terminal A on April 1.


    Thanks for writing that question. News of SWA moving to terminal A is just getting out. Helps me to plan better, especially since TSA is busier in Terminal A than former Terminal E


  • Separate Flights on JetBlue in Boston - Security Check Still Required
    Mar 4, 2015
    I have a return JetBlue flight from Newark ending in BOS at 6:50pm and a new flight originating in BOS to Fort Meyers for a completely new trip at 7:55pm on the same day. Do I need to go back through security? Or could I be covered since I would have been checked coming back to Boston originally? (Could the Newark team check me for the BOS to RSW flight even though it's a different ticket?) Just trying to avoid security again if possible. Thanks.


    You should be able to show both confirmations to the agent in Newark and have your bag checked through to RSW. If they don't you will have a hard time making that connection with a checked bag.


    Thanks, ZAP. I'm not checking a bag so hopefully that should help.

    I arrive in Logan at 8;46pm with Jet Blue terminal C and have to get a conecction with Icelandair at 9:30pm to London, in terminal 2, so I have just 40 min!!!! for connection, I will have just a back pack..can I make it? are this two terminals far from each other? did I have to go to security again?..need to know what to do, changing times in Orbtiz will be expensive :(, thank you.


    Icelandair uses Terminal E, there is no terminal 2. Yes, the two terminals are sort of next to each other but you will have to go through security. This is a very difficult connection. Try to change to an earlier flight to Boston on the day of your flight (the change fee is less then).

    I am flying into Boston from Iceland at 6:35 PM. If I book a flight to Nashville from Boston at 7:23, will I have enough time to make the connection? Is 7:23 the lates flight I can get? Would I be better off getting a hotel in Boston & flying out early the next morning?


    No, that's not enough time. You will have to spend the night in Boston.


  • Terminal C - C40 to C15
    Feb 24, 2015
    Will I have to go through security again to travel between these gates? Looking at their map on massport, it seems like I do.


    Correct you will, but the lines for those gates are typically quite short as that checkpoint only serves those three small Cape Air gates.

    I will arriving on Jetblue at 9:10 pm and and scheduled to leave on Emirates at 10:20...both in terminal C..all bags checked in..would the time me sufficient for the connection


    Sorry meant 10:20 pm


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • 1:40 Layover terminal B to E
    Feb 10, 2015
    I purchased flights separately with a 1:40 connection time. I will be arriving from Seattle on Alaska and catching an aer lingus flight to Shannon. I am traveling with carry on only. Will this be enough time to make the connection?


    Assuming your first flight is on-time. Yes, it is, if you run to Terminal E.


  • Security Check in Terminal C if connecting flight is in same terminal
    Feb 4, 2015
    We are connecting flight in BOS. Jet Blue arriving in Terminal C, and Emirates departing in same Terminal C. Baggages are checked in through and it is just one ticket. Do we still need to go through security check?


    You will just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Delta A Terminal to Virgin Atlantic E Terminal
    Jan 24, 2015
    We are arriving in Terminal A on a Delta Domestic flight. We are connecting on a Virgin Atlantic Flight to London Heathrow in terminal E. Do we have to reclaim our bags or will Delta transfer since they are an airline partner with Virgin Atlantic? What is the best way to get from Terminal A to Terminal E?


    If you purchased your tickets together then Delta will check your bag through to London. There is a walkway from Terminal A to Terminal E.


    Thank you. You seem to be very familiar with Logan .Is the terminal walkway to TE easy to find from delta arrival gates in TA?


    I actually haven't been there in awhile and have never used that walkway, so I can't help you with finding it. The blue line on this map is the walkway.


  • Transfer time

    Hi Im flying to Boston from London and then on to Nantucket this summer. Arrive into Boston at 12.20pm. Can fly Cape Air to ACK 3.05pm, 3.45pm and 4.35 pm. How much time should I leave to transfer and book bags in at Cape Air please?


    I think you would be OK with the 3:45 PM.


  • Enough time to transfer?

    I am arriving in Boston from Istanbul at 5:35pm and I need to buy a ticket to Seattle from Boston. There is an Alaska Airlines flight leaving Boston that night at 6:40pm. I am not checking any bags, and am wondering if I have time to make that connection? Seems pretty tight, but I have not traveled through BOS before and am not sure of the layout. Thank you for any assistance!


    No, that's not enough time, even without checked bags. The earliest you could be out of customs is like 6 PM, you would still have to go all the way across the airport and get through security.


    Thanks so much. Bought a flight the next morning. Have a great weekend!!!
