  • Moving from Terminal B to A
    May 25, 2016
    My daughter arrives via American Airlines at Terminal B. She has to take a Delta flight from Terminal A. How does she reach from B to A? Will she need to go through security again? Thanks!


    I would suggest checking out the official airport map. It has a pretty handy interactive map. I'm not sure about the security bit of the question. Hope that helps.


    Yes, connecting between Terminal A & B at Boston Logan will require going through the security again, sorry.


  • Will I have enough time?
    May 25, 2016
    I'll be arriving in Terminal E, from Portugal, at 5pm. I will have to go through security/customs, pick up my checked luggage, change terminal to Terminal B, check in at the United counter and go through security again to access the gates. My flight to Chicago leaves at 7.55pm. Do you guys think I have enough time?


    I think that's enough time if your flight from Portugal arrives on-time.


    You can check in your bags after Custom at Terminal E so at least United will know you are going to Terminal B. I agree that if your flight arrives on time, you should be able to make it! Good Luck!


    Hey, thanks for the reply. What do you mean I can check my bags in at terminal E? Is there a United counter there or something? Because I can't see it on the airport website! If not, where else could i do it? Thanks!


    If all your tickets are on the same reservation and your bags are tagged to your final destination then you can drop your bags at the re-check desk in Terminal E. If not then you will have to take your bags with you to United to re-check in Terminal B.


    No, they're not on the same reservation, the tickets were bought separately. So I don't think it would work out, I'll definitely have to pick them up and re check them in at terminal B


  • Customs and Terminal E to A, unrelated bookings, 105 minutes?
    May 23, 2016
    Arriving via Air France from Paris in terminal E at 6:15 pm (18:15). Departing to Chicago via United in terminal A at 8:00 pm (20:00) on an unrelated booking. No checked bags and we do have Global Entry and TSA Precheck which makes things considerably faster. Will this be enough time?


    Correction: United out of Terminal B


    With Global Entry and no checked bags I think you can make this if you check in for your United flight online before you leave Paris.


    Thanks for the reply. Fingers crossed for on-time arrival from Paris...

    We are arriving via SW to Terminal B at 7:40 pm and need to make a connecting flight on Iceland Air in Terminal E, departing at 9:30 pm, final stop is Munich. We will not be checking bags. Have we planned on enough time to make the connection in Boston? Assuming we should walk to the Terminal vs. taking a shuttle bus also. Thanks in advance for advice!


    Southwest uses Terminal A. You have just enough time if you hurry and your Southwest flight is on-tiime.


  • Which terminal Air Canada uses for flights arriving from Ottawa.

    Swiss air operates in which terminal?


    Air Canada uses their own little area of Terminal B. Swiss uses Terminal E.

    My parents are flying first time they are changing flight in BOS to CLE(Cleveland). They have to checkin baggage and go through security. They arrive BOS at 4:30PM in Qatar Airways and leave to CLE at 6:30PM. My mom is using wheel chair too. Will they have enough time? to go through security and check in baggage and change terminal from E to C?


  • Go thru security again when connecting in BOS
    May 13, 2016
    My kids and I are flying from Portland, OR, (PDX) to Dublin and connecting through Boston (BOS) on Jet Blue. When connecting in Boston we switch to AerLingus. Will we have to exit and go through security again at Boston's international terminal? Our layover is only 90 minutes and the security thing is a pain with kids.


  • Domestic to International outbound and return
    May 12, 2016
    Flying from PIT to BOS on Jet Blue, arriving at 7:00 pm and connecting to Aer Lingus to Dublin which leaves at 9:00; For return flight - Arriving from Dublin on Aer Lingus at 1:45 pm and connecting to Jet Blue to PIT leaving at 3:05. Will I be able to make these connections?


    On the way to Dublin you should have enough time. The return will be considerably harder, but isn't impossible.


    Your flight from Dublin MAY originate there with you going through US Customs in the Dublin airport. You should check with your airline about that. If that is the case you will have plenty of time in Boston. Last time i flew AL Dublin to Boston we can through US Customs in Dublin.

    Hi, Arriving via BA term E at 1500hrs connecting JetBlue at 1730hrs Term C. On same booking, had we best get track sprint training? Many thanks.


    I think you can make it without sprinting as long as your BA flight is on-time.


    Thanks for your prompt reply. Great service.


  • enough time?
    May 5, 2016
    I am buying 2 separate flights. TAP Portugal flight arrives from europe at 5pm and then my next flight is AA flight at 7:39om. Is that enough time to claim my 2 checked bags and recheckin?


    including customs as well (I am an american)?


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Is there a way I can have my bags checked all the way through from Europe to my final destination so I won't have to pick them up and recheck them in?


    You have to pick up your bags to go through US Customs, whether they are tagged to your final destination or not.


  • YHZ - BOS -IAD 50 minute connection
    May 1, 2016
    Hi I arrive in terminal B at gate 3 and need to make a connection to gate B27 - wil i have to clear security in bos to get from B 3 to B27 and is 50 minutes enough?


    Yes, you will have to go through security. Air Canada uses a separate little section of Terminal B that is not connected inside security to the rest of Terminal B. This makes this a very difficult connection.


  • Internation Arrive to Boston, International Depart to Ottawa
    Apr 30, 2016
    Hi my international emirates flight arrives in Boston at 2.15pm (on a Friday). I then need to travel to Ottawa. There's an Air Canada flight departing at 5.45pm.. is this 3.5hrs enough?


    That should be enough time.


  • Delta to Cape Air
    Apr 29, 2016
    Arriving on a Delta flight, transferring to Cape Air. Where will I go?


    You will arrive in Terminal A, walk to Terminal C, and go through security. Cape Air uses their own little area of Terminal C.


    Thanks for the response. Assuming I'll need to claim luggage and recheck?


    Yes, if you have checked bags you will. Also, because Cape Air has very small aircraft they have pretty strict restrictions on baggage so be sure to check those before you go.
