Want to skip to the front of the airport security checkpoint line?
We all do.
To get the courtesy, you can pay for TSA Pre-Check. You could pay for a CLEAR membership.
Or, if you’re flying out of Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), you could take a boat to the airport.
Boat service has been offered for quite a while. But in a new program, passengers who take water transportation to Boston Logan International Airport will now get complimentary priority access at the airport security line.
Under the plan, passengers who take the MBTA ferry or water taxi service to the Logan Airport Boat Dock (Fare: $15) will get a “Ticket to Skip” pass when they get off the boats and board the free Logan Airport shuttle to the terminals.
The orange ticket can then be presented to security checkpoint staff in exchange for preferred lane access.
In good weather, taking the water taxi from Boston waterfront is a great adventure and can be quite convenient.
The small boats leave from Long Wharf, which is right by the New England Aquarium, the North End, Faneuil Hall and other popular Boston landmarks you might be visiting on your way out of town anyway.
So the ride to the airport can be part of your vacation.
