Boston Logan Airport

JetBlue boosting Boston service. Now: Atlanta


JetBlue, already the largest airline at Boston Logan International Airport, is ramping up service there a bit more with the announcement of new service to Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport beginning on March 30, 2017.

This will be JetBlue’s 63rd nonstop destination from Boston –(the most destinations of any airline at Boston Logan, the carrier notes) – and with it comes an introductory one-way fare of $47 – starting today.

In addition to Boston-Atlanta flights, JetBlue will be adding service between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, New York JFK, and Orlando.

Wait – there’s more:

In addition to the flights between Boston and Atlanta, JetBlue also today announced some added flights out of Boston, including a fourth daily roundtrip Mint flight between Boston and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), starting July 15, 2017, and year-round service between Boston and Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ), which currently operates as seasonal service.

JetBlue is also expanding its seasonal service between Boston and St. Thomas’ Cyril E. King Airport (STT) to year-round service.

Fresh art at Boston Logan Int’l Airport

BOS Art Two

There’s a new aviation-themed piece of public art in the United Airlines Terminal B at Boston Logan International Airport.

Created by Jacob Kulin and called “Flyby,” the sculpture pays homage to flight and themes of movement and is 18 feet tall and 26 feet long. It’s made of anodized aluminum, powder coated steel, stainless steel – materials that mimic the metallic of airplanes.

“The sculpture echoes notions of transition and flow with its streamlined, telescoping forms, producing a sense of speed and takeoff as the piece seamlessly rears up from the floor,” explains Kulin.

Except for the oatmeal that I had to send back – twice – at one of the sit-down restaurants by the gates,  I spotted these charming – and useful – amenities.

Logan Flowers in loo

Fresh flowers! And blue counters color-coordinated with the powerful Dyson hand-dryer in the women’s loo. When I came back two days later, the flowers were changed out for a fresher bunch.

Logan Airport - bathroom timer

Go with confidence: a hard-to-miss timer in the women’s restroom showed the correct date and time and the time when the area was last serviced.

Living room or gate hold area? Everyone one of these comfortable chairs had a table and power.

Make-over for Boston Logan Terminal B

On Wednesday, Boston Logan International Airport and United Airlines open a new and renovated section of Terminal B that connects the two sides of Terminal B post-security and consolidates the United Airlines operations at Logan in one terminal.

The terminal includes updated amenities, including self-tagging baggage kiosks, automated self-boarding gates, a new customer service center and plenty of seats wired for power.

There’s also a new United Club space, offering great views of the airfield and Boston Harbor.

Berkshire farmsmarket

The terminal will also feature Berkshire Farms Market, which will carry a wide variety of gourmet foods and treats produced in western Massachusetts, the Berkshires and the Northeast.

The grab-and-go concept is based on Tastes on the Fly’s award-winning Napa Farms Market in Terminal 2 at San Francisco International Airport and will feature goodies such as Berkshire Bark chocolate, Berkshire Blue cheeses, Fire Cider and Bola Granola.

The Red Lion Gift Shop from Stockbridge, Mass. will be curating a selection of regional cookbooks and books by Berkshire authors and a map of the Berkshire region describing the area’s food culture will be given out with each purchase.

Sounds great doesn’t it? I can’t wait to visit!
