  • Baggage claim ,immigration nd change of terminals
    Oct 21, 2016
    I am travelling from pakistan to detroit via dubai and boston at terminal E thtu Emirates,i was concerned that my last flight from boston to detroit is thru jetblue ,so do i need to claim baggage and will thr be any assistance in this regard.


    In Boston, if everything is on the same reservation, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go to Terminal C, through security and to your departure gate.


    Thankx for the prompt reply,ya its on the same reservation Since its my 1st time and i know i cant carry so much weight on my own ,i was worried that With two chked in bags nd handcarry it would be difficult for me to move the trolley all the way from immgration an all then to terminal C from terminal E So are thr porters thr to provide the passengers with assistance


    You don't have to take your bags with you all the way to Terminal C. You can re-check them at a desk right after you clear Customs in Terminal E.

    I'll have 45 mins to transer from an incoming flight from RDU to an outgoing to LHR. Is that enough time?


    What airlines? Are both tickets on the same reservation? I can't answer your question without that information.


    Sorry for the lack of detail. It would be with Virgin, coming into BOS from RDU on VS4204 then departing BOS to LHR on VS4012. All on one booking so I won't be going thru costoms but will probably need to clear security again. Thanks.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. Both flights are on Delta. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal A. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • enough time?

    I arrive in BOS at 1;30pm from YHZ(Canadian) have to pick up bags and be processed through customs. I catch a connecting flight to DFW at 3:50pm, is this doable? what can I do to make everything run smoothly?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. What airlines are you flying and are your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?

    Hello I'm an American citizen flying from KEV>BOS on WOW at 4:25pm Arrival, then BOS>JAX on SW at 5:45pm. is 1 hour 20 min enough time to get through customs to my next flight? I Will not have any checked luggage to worry about so I was hoping it could work.


    That connection is not reasonably possible, even without checked baggage.

    Is there a walkway inside security between terminal A and terminal E?


    No, there is not. A is not connected to any other terminals.


  • Wondering about TSA check points
    Aug 1, 2016
    We have a SW flight from Terminal A tomorrow am. I see that wait times are up to an hour long. Can you clear TSA in Terminal B, then walk to your Southwest flight in Terminal A?


    No, terminal A and B are not connected inside security.

    Hello, My wife and I are expected to come into Logan on the 12th of September from Jordan in the evening around 7:30 We then have to take the Amtrak to Providence Rhode Island the train leaving at 9:30pm from South Station. Do you believe we have ample time to take a shuttle to South Station to catch our train after arriving?? Thanks


    I think that will be very difficult, bordering on impossible.

  • Lost property
    Jun 28, 2016
    Yesterday I took a flight from Boston to Reykjavik with Icelandair and I've lost my camera with all the accessories inside at the terminal E. That happened after TSA checkpoint or, at least, at TSA itself. When I've realized that it was too late and I decided to take the flight. At home I've recorded the message at TSA and customers hall numbers. This is the first time that I lost something at the airport, but I was wondering if I can speak directly with someone or I just have to wait and cross my fingers? I really need to find it, so any kind of help/information will be really appreciated!!


  • Terminal E Customs Wait Times
    Jun 4, 2016
    Just wondering what the average wait time for customs in Boston terminal E is? Landing at 2.15pm on a Friday if that makes a difference? Need to book a bus so wanted to have a rough idea.


    That's a peak time. I wouldn't book anything before 4 PM.

  • Coming from Provincetown to Logan airport for international flight
    May 9, 2016
    I have a 7:13 pm klm flight Boston to Amsterdam. There's a 3 pm ferry due to arrive Boston harbor 4:30 and then I need to make it to the airport with check in time for an international flight. Am I cutting it too close or does that seem reasonable?


    On a weekday, considering that you will be arriving into Boston in the middle of rush hour, this will be pretty difficult.
