Logan International Airport (BOS), or General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, is located in Boston, Massachusetts – only 5km (3 miles) northeast of downtown Boston. With a workforce of approximately 16,000 people and four well-laid out terminals, this easy-to-use airport is renowned for its efficiency. More than 25 million passengers catch flights to Logan International Airport from across US and around the world.

Almost entirely surrounded by water, travelling to and from Logan International Airport is easiest via ferry. However, this is not to say that the airport is without alternative transport – in fact, due to a number of service providers operating at Logan International, including taxis, trains, buses and shuttles, the airport was dubbed “Easiest Airport to Get To” by in 2007.

One of the airport’s main attractions is the Boston Logan International Airport 9/11 Memorial, a 2.5-acre site dedicated to honouring the passengers and crew aboard the two planes that departed from Logan International on 11 September 2001. Against a pristine landscape of trees and stone walls, with a central glass commemorative sculpture, the site is a place of reflection and remembrance.
