  • how long does it take to get from gate to gate in one terminal?
    Aug 4, 2016
    How long does it take to get from gate a gate on the first level of terminal A to one on the 2nd level? I'm flying in from RDU on Mon & my plane is suppose to arrive at terminal A and the also depart from that same terminal to amsterdam. And I only have 20 mins to transfer to the other plane. I'll have the gate numbers on mon. But I would like to have a general idea on how long it takes to get from the lower level of terminal A to the upper level. I don't want to miss my plane


    You have just enough time if your flight from RDU is on-time.


  • Layover long enough
    Aug 2, 2016
    Hello, 2 US citizens coming in from Stockholm to Logan, then Logan to Chicago - flights were booked separately. Do we need to go through customs at Logan? There is a 1hr15min layover between the 2 flights, is that enough time? Thank you!


    Yes, in Boston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags to your second airline, check your bags, and go through security. That is NOT enough time. You need to book different flights.


  • Jet Blue to SATA
    Aug 2, 2016
    Jet Blue arrives at 7:49PM SATA leaves for the Azores at 10:15PM Which terminals and is this connection possible?


    You arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E. Where are you flying from on JetBlue? Are your tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation?


    from San Diego separate tickets


    Then that will be a very difficult connection if you have checked bags. You will have to hurry to Terminal 3 with your bags to make it there before the checked bag cutoff.


    Sorry, Terminal E.


  • International connection

    Hi I am arriving from Copenhagen (Air France) at 12:35 and want to book a flight to Martha's Vineyard at 3:10. Will I have time for customs transfer and getting to flight?


    Air France does not fly from Copenhagen to Boston. What airline are you flying to Martha's Vineyard?


    Sorry plane change in Paris. So for this purpose, it will be from Paros. As for the vineyard, jet blue


    Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?


    Different reservations and checked bag


    Then this will be a difficult connection, but not impossible. You will have to transfer your bags yourself from Terminal E to the JetBlue Check-in in Terminal C.


  • SPIRIT Airlines connecting to CAPEAIR
    Jul 29, 2016
    Does anyone know what terminal SPIRIT and CAPE AIR use??? I will be flying into BOS on SPIRIT, but need to connect with CAPE AIR and wanted to know how far apart they are!


    Spirit uses Terminal B and Cape Air uses Terminal C. They are not connected inside security and if you have checked bags you will have to transfer them yourself between airlines.


  • Connecting from Terminal B o terminal A
    Jul 28, 2016
    I will be landing at terminal B at 4:50pm and need to catch a flight at 7:27pm from terminal A. Do I have enough time o make the flight and what is the best and fastest at to connect between theses terminals


    Yes, that should be enough time. The fastest way between those two terminals is walking.


  • Layover 1 hr 55 min

    Hi there, I am looking into a flight from Dubai to Boston, arriving at 07:40 and leaving on a JETBLUE domestic flight at 09:30. Do you think i have time to clear immigration, retrieve baggages, check in again? I will be traveling with my husband, my 4 yr old and 1 yr old.


    That's less time than I'd recommend if it's two separate reservations, but if it's one reservation, that's probably possible.


  • changing flights in d same terminal
    Jul 23, 2016
    hi. i am travelling to dubai. but i am travelling from Nashville to boston and there is another flight to dubai in next hour. both the flights are in the same terminal only. do i need to go throught the security. ? i dont have lugguage . i just have a bagpack with me. will i be able to make it. both the flights are in the same terminal only.kindly reply me


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Check in online for your Emirates flight before you leave Nashville if you can.


  • Terminal A to C
    Jul 10, 2016
    Arrive at terminal A at 4.48 PM on 14 july on Delta 2549 from Minneapolis. Depart from terminal C at 7:15 PM on Aer Lingus. Have to take our own luggage from A to C because we have 2 separate tickets and they can't check the luggage from minneapolis all the way through to Shannon.Do we have enough time if the first flight is on time?


    Yes, that should be just about enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.


  • correction

    actually its flight 18 connecting onto flight 617


  • will i make it
    Jul 5, 2016
    I am arriving into boston on jetblue flight 189 which is meant to land at 706 am and take jetblue flight 691 to jfk which leaves at 730 am. no suitcases. is that enough time ? do you have to go through security ?


    So you're flying JFK-Boston-JFK? It's possible if the flight is on-time but it leaves no time to spare. No, you won't have to go through security.


  • Connecting Flight: Can I make it?
    Jul 1, 2016
    Hi. I arrive at Boston Logan on Delta at 6 pm. Then I have a connecting flight on Wow departing at 7pm. I only have a backpack, no luggage. Can I hustle to WoW terminal and make it? Thoughts?


    Realistically, Zero chance. You need an earlier flight to Boston.


  • Change terminal times in Boston
    Jun 29, 2016
    I am arriving from Iceland (Icelandair) and need to transfer to a United flight to Houston. I currently have a 5hr layover. It want to change to an earlier flight. If so I will get in at 12 and leave at 1:15. I have global entry and premier access on United, TSAPre and Clear if its there. Do you think I could make the transfer with checked bags if I take the earlier flight? Both bags are going to checked through so I can drop them off after customs


    5hr hours is plenty of time. 1hr 15min is tight if everything runs smoothly & Flights are on time. Is there anything with a 2hr 15min or 2hr 30min connection? That Would Be Better. I don't know about the bags, but I know about layover times.


  • In Transit - Boston - JFK
    Jun 28, 2016
    My family & I will be flying in from South Africa, via Dubai - connecting in Boston for JFK, on the 15th of July. Arriving Boston - Emirates 8.55 am Departing Boston - Jetblue Airline 11.14 am 2 hour 20 minute lay over I am concerned that we have just 2 hours to retrieve baggage, clear immigration and reach the departing gate for JFK at Terminal C. We are anticipating a delay at customs as we will be entering the US as first time Diversity immigrants (which Im sure will add to processing time). We were under the impression that luggage will be retrieved at last point of entry or destination, understanding now that clearance is processed at first point of entry. Any delays has a ripple effect on airport transfers and bookings in JFK, and so on, so Im really stressed. 1) Does Logan have a designated area for processing of 'sealed envelopes' for new immigrants? Will 2 hrs be sufficient to get through required processes to reach Terminal C, check in baggage and board prior to departure schedule of 11.14 am 2) I've read of "a baggage re-check desk" at Terminal E from your blog. How does this work? Are we able to make use of the service at this intransit point? and Would this benefit us to save time. 3) the same applies to shuttle vs walking from Terminal E to Terminal C, as I can only imagine the vastness of the airport, which the virtual online map doesn't reflect the reality of distance. Please help, any advice will help.


    Immigration in Boston is not crowded, especially in the morning. You will use the same line as others entering the US on a Visa. The re-check desk is right after you clear customs in Terminal E. It's hard to miss. If your bags are already tagged to JFK - which they should, you just drop your bags off there vs. having to take them to Terminal C. Boston may look large, and it does have a lot of buildings, but it's actually not that big.


  • To Orlando via Boston
    Jun 28, 2016
    Hi there, I will be reaching Boston from Dubai at 9 AM and have to take a flight to Orlando departing 11:30 AM. Do I have enough time to do immigration, customs and change from terminal E to C? Kindlty adv


    If everything is on the same reservation that should be enough time.


    I checked with my airline and they adv that I will have to pick up my luggage and check in again for Orlando. Do I still have enough time to catch the flight to Orlando ? Thanks


    Yes, you do.
