  • TSA wait times

    Departing BOS at 8a on AA on May 23, 2016. What is the average wait time for TSA ? Heard that some terminals do not have TSA due to construction

  • 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.


  • Is two hours enough for connecting flight?
    Apr 7, 2016
    I am returning from LHR on a Delta (Virgin Atalntic) flight at 3:30pm on June 26. I am looking at a JetBlue connecting flight home that departs at 5:35pm. Would this be enough time to make the connection? I would have one checked bag.


    With immigration, bag claim, a terminal change, baggage re-check,and security. No, I don't think that's enough time.


  • security check
    Apr 5, 2016
    Hi, we are disembarking from a cruise in Boston and I need to book a flight to Toronto. Could you tell me what would be an average time to pass thru security check at BOS once check in is completed? Thank you.


    It's recommended to get to the airport about 2 hours before your flight.


  • Time take to clear Customs and immigration
    Mar 8, 2016
    Hi, I am booked to arrive from UK into Boston Logan July around 10.15pm. How long will it take generally to clear immigration and customs around that time of the day and how long will it take to get to Cambridge. Thank You.


    Immigration and customs should be pretty quick at that time because as far as I know that's the only late evening international arrival - so maybe 20-30 minutes (that' a guess). There will also be no traffic at that time, so you can get from BOS to Cambridge in a taxi in basically 20 minutes.


  • TSA precheck at Terminal E
    Feb 7, 2016
    I have a 10 am SW flight from Logan Terminal E. I know there is no TSA Precheck at the SW gates, but will there be a lane open in the main (international) part of the terminal?


    Southwest no longer uses Terminal E. They use Terminal A.


    Whew! Thanks for letting me know!


  • Terminal B security hours
    Feb 1, 2016
    We have a 6am flight on AA out of Terminal B... What time does security open?


    Probably about 4:30


  • arrive 1.5 hours before flight?
    Jan 25, 2016
    If my family of 4 arrives via bus at 9:25 at Logan for a 11:00 flight to FL, will that be enough time? If not, it means we have to drive and pay for parking. I'm thinking the bus is a great option...


    Yes, that should be enough time


  • TSA Pre-Check for AA flight from B34?
    Nov 27, 2015
    Is the Pre-Check facility reasonably convenient to gate B34?


    There is pre-check on the AA side of Terminal B, B34 is at the end, but it's not too far.


  • Several questions about Terminal E
    Dec 24, 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?


  • American to BA
    Nov 8, 2014
    I have a flight that will land in BOS on AA at 4:10 PM and transfer to BA flight leaving at 5:55 PM. No checked luggage, just carry on. 1 Do I have to go thru security all over again and is this doable. Flight were booked together.


    Yes, you will have to go through security but you should have plenty of time. There is a shuttle connecting terminal B where you will arrive and terminal E where you will depart that runs on the curbside.


    Thank you feel much better now.


    Hi from Italy! Next week we will transit in Boston from Miami back to London. Will be landing with AA in TB and the connection to Europe will leave from TE after 1 hour 27 mins. No checked luggage, only carry on. Shall we make it in time? Please advise also if we will have to undergo the security check in TB ? Or just in TE ? Thanks in advance ! best regards. Paolo

    I travel on Friday 6 June, arriving Logan terminal E at 13.25 from London. I have to collect baggage and then get to terminal B for flight to Toronto AC269 at 15.50. I have injured my ankle and have difficulty walking. Will I have enough time and can I get help?
