Where is baggage claim in Terminal B?

By Steven P Thacker - Friday, 1 October, 2021, 4:08 PM

Answered By: iFly Staff

There are 3 separate baggage claim areas in Terminal B, and where you end up is based on the Carousel used by your airline (there are 10 total carousels). Carousel 1-3 is on one side of the "horseshoe" shape of the terminal, and 5-10 are on the other side.

If someone is arriving in Terminal B. It is a horseshoe shape. How can I figure out which side of the terminal they will exit on?

By Roger - Friday, 1 October, 2021, 5:18 PM

Answered By: iFly Staff

Good question. Assuming they have checked luggage, this all depends on the baggage carousel assigned to. Carousels 1-3 are on the first "arm" of the horseshow, 5-6 are just after the turn, and 8-10 are at the very end. There are 2 walkways where travelers can cross over, so you can coordinate with your passengers and have them maneuver based on the traffic levels. Good luck!

Answered By: iFly Staff

Legal's Test Kitchen is located in Terminal A, after security, across from Gate 5. It is not a full-blown Legal Seafood, but it is a concept operated by the same business, meaning you can get Chowda there!

If I go through security at Nantucket with Cape Air, do I have to go through security again to connect to American Airlines at terminal B?

By billy - Monday, 4 October, 2021, 2:51 AM

No. When you land in Boston, Cape Air uses Terminal C, which is inside security area. You will just need to make your way to Terminal B for your American flight. Good luck and safe travels!
