  • 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.


  • connection TB to TC and checked baggage
    Oct 7, 2014
    I am flying AA to Boston with a connection on Cape Air booked through AA. I will go from TB to TC. Will I have to retrieve my baggage before I go through security at TC?


    If you purchased your tickets together your baggage will be directly transferred to Cape Air.


  • connection terminal C to B
    Sep 19, 2014
    Arriving Cape Air terminal C, departing United terminal B. Is 40 min enough connection time, and must I to go through security again?


    40 minutes will be very difficult - you will have to go through security in Terminal B. Be sure to check in for your United flight online before you leave on your Cape Air flight. I know that sometimes if passengers have tight connections Cape Air will drive you to your departing gate and let you into the terminal inside security.


  • How long From TB to TE?
    Aug 30, 2014
    How long to walk to TB to TE ? is easy to find the way walk or any shuttle or Bus will take me to TE ? because I don't want to miss the fly to Houston.and give me some direction Please.


    You follow the signs to C, then follow the signs to E. Also airport shuttle bus routes 11 and 55 connect all terminals.


  • Can u guide me how much time from Terminal B to Terminal E
    Aug 30, 2014
    I'm arrive on 2:17Pm at Terminal B try to catch southwest airline on 4;15 at terminal E.Please tell me how much time ? Am I ok to get to terminal E on time?


    You can only do it easily without checked bags and if you check-in online and print your Southwest boarding pass before you leave. To walk from Terminal B to Terminal E you follow the signs to Terminal C, walk all the way across Terminal C, following the signs to Terminal E.


  • Terminal E to C?
    Aug 29, 2014
    I'm a Canadian and I'll be arrive JetBlue at terminal E from Bermuda at 3:10. I have 2.5 hours to make a flight in terminal B with Air Canada to Halifax. This seems like plenty of time? Can anyone confirm? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda, so in Boston you will arrive at a regular JetBlue gate in Terminal C. All you will have to do is collect your bags (if you have any) go to Terminal B, re-check your bags with Air Canada, and go through security.


  • only 2hrs.15 min. between flights
    Aug 28, 2014
    I am arriving on AF terminal E at 6:25pm. Knowing that I will need to clear customs and immigrations before I head to terminal B to catch my 8:40pm domestic flight back to LAX how much time do I need? Do i have a chance?


    Yes, I think you have a good chance.


    thank you ZAP!


  • Flying from MSP to BOS then going to Quebec on Air Canada
    Aug 26, 2014
    Flying from MSP on Delta, then flying from BOS to Quebec on Air Canada. Have 1 hr 20 min between flights. Do we have enough time to make Air Canada flight? What about customs?


    You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Canada. To make your connection you will have to walk from Terminal A to Terminal B and go through security. You should check in online for your Air Canada flight.


    You should have barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.




  • only 45 minute connection
    May 2, 2015
    flying from Halifax, Nova Scotia,canada to orlando. Flights were not great, we only have 45 minutes to connect in Boston. We fly Air Canada Jazz from Halifax to Boston, then have 45 minutes to catch a United flight from Boston to Newark. Will this be enough time? Do we have to go through customs? Do we have to change terminals.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. Both Air Canada and United use Terminal B. However, Air Canada uses a small annex of Terminal B that is not connected to the rest of the terminal Inside security. So you will have to go through security. You should have enough time if your flight is on-time but you'll be in trouble if you're delayed.


    Ooooops, my connection going the other way is even less,...36 minutes. United to AC 8894 X. Should I through check all luggage? With my hip replacement, I can't run anymore.

    Is it possible to make a connection from Icelandair Fl631 arriving at 5:40pm to a usairways Fl224 leaving for Chicago at 7:55pm.


    It will be very very difficult. First, note that your flight to Chicago will likely be operated by American. Secondly You will have to change terminals, re-check your bags, and go through security. It's possible if you don't have checked bags and you check in for your flight to Chicago before leaving Iceland, but will be very difficult any other way.


    You'll arrive at terminal E, and depart from terminal B if US airways or American. I would think two hours should be plenty of time, especially if you've a) booked both flights on the same reservation, and b) check in online first. Bonus if you're US Global Entry. Might take too long if you have a 'suspicious' passport/visa from elsewhere. You'll need to clear US customs, get your bag, and leave it at the luggage desk at the customs exit -- IF your bags are checked all the way through. Then just catch a free shuttle to terminal B. They run often, and terminal B will be the 2nd stop (after terminal A.)
