  • Moving from Terminal E to Terminal B
    Nov 5, 2015
    I am arriving from Frankfurt to terminal E to catch my onward flight to Ottawa from Terminal B. Have I to go through immigration? collect my baggages and recheck them at Air canada express counter? and undergo immigration again before proceeding to departure gate? thanking you in advance


    If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be tagged to Ottawa. In Boston you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then walk or take the shuttle to Terminal B and go through security. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Ottawa.

    I am considering purchasing tickets for two people on Dec 30. Will be arriving at 4:08pm on Jetblue (from DFW). Taking off at 5:55pm with Wow for Iceland. We would check in online but would that be enough time to switch terminals, check a bag and go through security? If we didn't check bags or became TSA pre check, would that help? Thanks


    It should be enough time without checked bags. It would be difficult with checked bags.


    I am flying with wow soon and my research say you can not check in online!! You must go to the desk and they say the desk closes 45 min before flight. When I say close .. I mean they walk away. The reviews have been brutal about this and luggage policy


  • Terminal E to Terminal B/C/A
    Oct 25, 2015
    I will be arriving in Boston on a Lufthansa flight at 1:20 PM. I will then go through immigration/customs etc. (as I'm not a US national), pick up my bags and go to either terminal B, C or A (dont know yet) for American Airlines flight to Charlotte at 5:05PM. So, I have 3 hours and 45 minutes. Is this time enough to carry my luggage and make a terminal transfer safely? Please advise.


    You should have plenty of time. Your American flight will depart from Terminal B.


  • 2hr 10 min for connection

    Hi, I am arriving to Boston airport from an international flight to Terminal E at 6:20PM and have an American Airlines flight to Pittsburgh at 08:30PM. I think I need to go to Terminal B for AA flight. In this case is this amount of time enough to pass airport security and transfer to Terminal B? Thanks.


    That should be just about enough time.


    Just curious - did you make it? I am in the same situation today and scared I'm going to miss my flight!


    Sorry for not giving the time details but mine will be in December. But needed to know prior to buy my Pittsburgh ticket. I also suggest using flight tracker websites to see when the same flight actually arrived before. Airline tickets give predicted arrival times including max. delay possibility. My flight seems to arrive at 5:10PM usually although it says 6:20PM on my ticket.


  • 45 min connection united cape air
    Jan 9, 2015
    I have 45 minute connection from united to cape air is that enough time?


    If you purchased your tickets together and/or don't have checked bags it's BARELY enough time. With checked bags if your bags aren't checked through to your final destination, no chance.


  • Connection and baggage question
    Jan 7, 2015
    I am arriving in Boston at 6:20 pm on a Delta flight and leaving for London on Virgin Atlantic 12 at 10:10 pm. I would like to check one of my carry-on bags on the Virgin Atlantic flight. Will I need to go through security again? Thanks.


    You need to check bags for your entire path of travel if you want to check them, unless you purchased two separate tickets. If you did purchase two separate tickets and want to check one of your bags in JFK, you will have to exit security to do so.


    Sorry, just realized you are connecting in Boston, not JFK. The same answer about the baggage applies, if you purchased one ticket you must check the bag at the origin, however, you will have to go through security in Boston regardless as you will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal E. They are not connected.


  • Several questions about Terminal E
    Dec 25, 2014
    We have connecting Southwest and Iceland Air flights in BOS on a Friday evening in March. And luckily, it looks like both arrive and leave the same terminal - E. We did not purchase our tickets together. So I imagine we have to pick up our luggage from baggage claim and recheck it? We have a 3 hour layover between flights. Should this be enough time to get our luggage, Iceland Air boarding passes and recheck our bags, make it through security and maybe grab a quick bite to eat?


    Yes you have the procedure correct and yes you have enough time.


  • Iceland Air to United connection one hour 40 mins
    Oct 20, 2015
    I have a group of 10 on Iceland Air FI 631 arriving at 5:40 pm at terminal E and the group is booked to leave out of terminal B on United at 7:20 pm. Will the group be okay of the bags are not checked all the way?


    It will be very very difficult to make your connection on-time. Especially considering that because you are in a group, you cannot check-in online for your United flight.


    So did you make your flight? I'm curious because I am in the same situation today. and nervous!


  • Please help

    I will arrive on SWA in terminal E & have to get to Cape Air in terminal C Is there an easy way????


    You can walk from E to C fairly easily.


  • Security again from B to C?
    Dec 14, 2014
    Is there any (easy) way to get from terminal B to terminal C WITHOUT having to go through security AGAIN?


    No, there is not, no terminals at BOS are connected inside security.


  • Connection time to allow flying different airlines?
    Nov 14, 2014
    Hello, I am flying in from DC to BOS the day after Thanksgiving on Southwest, then have a 3 hr layover, departing on SATA to Azores. 1 carryon bag only. Is that a long enough layover? I assume since going from Domestic to International we have to go through security and customs or immigration too, or is that on arrival in the Azores? Thanks!


    All you have to do in Boston is exit security to get your SATA boarding pass, get it, and then go through security. You will go through customs and immigration when you get to the Azores. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. Both flights are in Terminal E.


    Thanks! So 3 hrs should be more than enough time? Someone told me people line up for SATA flights like 5 hrs ahead of time which seems crazzzzy. I could see that in S. American, but not Boston....


    I should also have asked, coming home then through immigration is 2.5 hrs enough to arrive from azores on sata and transfer to sw back to DC? As you can tell, we don't travel much - it will set my mind at ease to know in advance so thanks very much


    Yes, people do line up that early for some of those flights, but for no good reason. Yes, 2.5 hours should be enough on your return trip. If possible check in online for your Southwest flight before you leave the Azores and then you won't have to stop at the Southwest counter and you'll get a better boarding number.


    Thanks, great advice!


  • shuttle to car rentals
    Nov 12, 2014
    I'm arriving to Terminal B. Where do I get the shuttle to Alamo car rental?


    On the lower level of Terminal B, take Shuttle Bus #22 or #55 to the Rental Car Center.


  • Arrive Terminal A and Meeting Group at Terminal E--is it possible?
    Nov 10, 2014
    I'm flying in to Terminal A, and meeting a group who are flying in international to Terminal E. I have to claim my luggage and meet them in Terminal E. Is that possible? How long will it take?


    It's possible. You have to take a shuttle or walk straight across all the parking garages. I would estimate you'd be in Terminal E 30-40 minutes after you arrive in Terminal A.


  • Terminal B to C
    Nov 10, 2014
    I am arriving on US Airways into BOS (Terminal B) at 8.15pm, have an international connection on Emirates Airlines to Dubai (Terminal C) departing 10.25 pm. Have checked in bags. Do I stand a chance of making it?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.


  • TA to TB
    Nov 12, 2014
    How long to walk from terminal A to terminal B? Is the shuttle easy to catch? Time?


    B is horseshoe shaped. From the exit of A to the near side of B it's maybe only 2 or 3 minutes, to the far side it's maybe 5 minutes. If you arrive in the Satellite of Terminal A, it will take a few minutes to walk to the exit of Terminal A.


    Thanks for the info!


    Do you need to go through security again from A to B?


    Yes, you do.
