BOS | Boston Logan International Airport

Growth of discounters levels off at Logan
Shortage of gates, tough competition hamper carriers

16 August 2007
The Boston Globe

After years of explosive growth, low-fare carriers are catching their breath at Logan International Airport.

From August 2001 to August 2006, low-fare carriers including AirTran Airways, JetBlue Airways, the now-defunct Independence Air, and Spirit Airlines collectively increased their presence at Logan by over 700 percent, measured by seats on outbound flights.

But they've since gone into a holding pattern. This month, discounters account for 17.7 percent of all Logan departure capacity - the same percentage as last August. Logan actually has fewer weekly departures on low-fare carriers now than last August - 534 compared with 540, according to Official Airline Guide data.

Industry analysts cite a host of factors for the leveling off, including constrained gate space for AirTran and JetBlue and tougher competition from legacy airlines recovering from bankruptcy.

Logan officials, who love low-fare carriers for the cheaper travel options they offer passengers and the competitive pressure they put on old-line carriers to hold down fares, are optimistic it's only a short-term plateau and more waves of low-fare growth are coming.

Nothing has been disclosed, but local aviation officials think Boston could be a prime market for Virgin America, a sister carrier to Virgin Atlantic that began service this month with $312 million in financing. Virgin America flies transcontinental routes between John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Virgin says it expects to serve "as many as 10 cities within our first year," but officials wouldn't say whether that could include Boston or another New England destination.

Edward C. Freni, the aviation director for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan, said he couldn't comment on what plans Virgin America or any other low-fare carriers may have at Logan. But in general terms, he said, "I think you will see this start to ramp up again."

Freni said he's optimistic the Nov. 1 move of Continental Airlines from Terminal C to Delta Air Lines Inc.'s Terminal A, freeing up C gates for both AirTran and JetBlue, Logan's two principal low-fare carriers, will unleash another wave of growth. AirTran, which has been hampered by a split-level gate arrangement with three gates in the dingy old Terminal D and a fourth sublet from United Airlines upstairs, is likely to move to five contiguous gates in the current Continental area, Freni said.

"When that happens, I think you will see AirTran add scheduling, but I don't know where," Freni said. JetBlue, which uses eight Terminal C gates now, is contractually committed to leasing three more by November 2008, and "I think you'll see JetBlue examine more routes and options," Freni said.

JetBlue spokesman Sebastian White said, "We think there's still a lot of opportunity to expand our low-fare flights to places across the US and into the Caribbean, Mexico, and Canada. We think the airport still sorely lacks meaningful low-fare competition beyond our network."

JetBlue yesterday said it is adding a Christmas-season nonstop flight to Santiago, Dominican Republic, and in the last year has added flights to Charlotte, N.C., San Diego, and San Francisco and seasonal flights to Aruba and Cancun, bringing to 28 the number of destinations it now serves from Logan. A flight to Phoenix canceled last spring may return for the winter season also, White said.

AirTran officials had no comment on their Boston plans.

The third low-fare carrier at Logan, Spirit Airlines, offering two daily flights to Detroit and a third to Myrtle Beach, S.C., hasn't indicated it plans to grow. The nation's biggest discounter, Southwest Airlines, which normally eschews expensive and congested airports like Logan, serves the Boston market from airports in Manchester, N.H., and Warwick, R.I., and hasn't given any public indication it plans to come to Logan.

Aviation consultant Daniel Kasper, managing director of LECG LLC in Cambridge, said he attributes the Logan slowdown in discount carrier service to the successful bankruptcy reorganizations this year of Delta and Northwest Airlines and, earlier, United Airlines and US Airways.

"Part of what that restructuring was designed to do was to make the legacy carriers somewhat more cost-competitive and get them back on financial footing so they could compete with the low-cost carriers," Kasper said. "The big guys have become more cost- competitive," so there's been less opportunity for discounters to profitably expand service at Logan in the last year. Kasper said JetBlue, which counts Boston as its second busiest market after New York, seems to have deliberately slowed growth here - other than a new connecting flight partnership with Cape Air/Nantucket Airlines - to focus on smoothing out operations after a February storm plunged JetBlue into a week of chaos and 1,000 flight cancellations.

Boston looks like a perfect expansion market for Virgin America, Kasper said, and "I would definitely expect Boston to be on their radar screens."

Measured by how much revenue it generates for airlines, Logan is the ninth biggest US airport, driving $3.2 billion in ticket sales in the year ended September 2006, according to Simat, Helliesen, & Eichner Inc., a Cambridge aviation industry consulting firm. The biggest US airport for revenue was Los Angeles International at $5 billion, with Chicago's O'Hare, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Dallas/Fort Worth International rounding out the top five.

Logan will most definitely be on Virgin America's screen - the tie to Virgin Atlantic alone will see to this. But Boston makes a lot of sense for their style of an airline.

As far as low cost carries go, I do expect AirTran to grow, JetBlue much less so. The demand in Boston is leveling off - the city is not experiencing the massive growth other cities are. Also, there are some nerby alternative airports (in particular TF Green) which would more than attractive for new low cost routes, since not only are they cheaper and easier to get to, but TF Green will soon be linked via rail, and most likely Acela Express, service to Boston.

No detail too small on annual Logan tour
25 November 2010
The Boston Globe

Striding through Terminal B at Logan International Airport yesterday morning on his annual day-before-Thanksgiving inspection tour, the Massachusetts Port Authority's chief executive, Thomas Kinton, liked what he saw: sparkling floors, festive holiday wreaths, and most important, no apparent snarls in security lines from a threatened protest by passengers.

"We had a quiet morning this morning?" he asked a Transportation Security Administration officer, John Sherwood.

"Everything's going extra smooth," Sherwood said.

For days, airport officials had been preparing for National Opt- Out Day, in which travelers were urged to bypass controversial scanners that show revealing images of passengers' bodies, in favor of pat-downs. But the feared security logjams never came to pass.

"Just like we planned," Kinton said.

Most of Kinton's days are spent focused on the big picture - overseeing the authority's $350 million annual operating budget, juggling which airline should fly out of what terminal - but on the airport tours, he thinks small. Extremely small.

He pointed out a plastic bag in a shrub, burnt-out light bulbs, coffee cups on the floor, and fingerprint smudges on a window as the small group of Massport staffers trailing him made calls and took notes on BlackBerrys.

"It drives some people crazy," said Kinton, 58, who has seen people roll their eyes when he nitpicks.

"It seems like he has more than two eyes," said Gary Tobin, head of airport facilities.

The employees who followed Kinton struggled to keep up with his rapid pace, which slowed only when his fingerprint failed to open security doors.

"That was only one terminal. God help us," said communications director Danny Levy, an hour into the five-mile sweep through the airport.

Logan is the 19th-busiest airport in the country, serving more than 25 million passengers last year, and it was operating at full capacity yesterday. Cleaning crews were beefed up, additional state police troopers roamed the terminals, extra TSA officials manned the checkpoints, and Massport employees who normally work as lawyers and engineers joined the public information staff on the front lines.

Earlier this month, the man who runs the airport was the subject of controversy. A proposed $22,000 pay raise for Kinton, one of the state's highest-paid officials, was withdrawn after an objection by Governor Deval Patrick's lone appointee on the Massport board of directors. The 7.5 percent raise would have boosted Kinton's annual salary to $317,000 a year.

Kinton declined to talk about it yesterday. "It's an issue for the board of directors, and that's between them and me," he said.

What he did want to talk about was cleanliness - especially floors, which must be shiny - and order. A crooked floor mat sparked a call to a terminal manager.

"Chairs," he said to aviation direction Edward Freni, pointing to an off-kilter row.

"I see the chairs," Freni said, impatiently. "There are a lot of people in them."

Kinton acknowledged that such close attention to detail might seem "whacked" but argued it helps set travelers at ease.

"If the first thing you see is a curb full of litter, a bus that's not clean, they start to say, `Is this place working right?' " he said.

Yesterday, a drooping Christmas tree prompted a cry of "Don't look!" from Deb Lombardo, deputy director of executive administration, as she hurried Kinton along.

Kinton, who started working at Logan nearly 35 years ago as a temporary engineer, conducted his first walkthrough in the early 1980s, when he was building maintenance manager. He does some sort of walkthrough about once a week, from solo trips for a quick roadway check to more formal treks with deputies.

"I want [employees] to see me, to know that I'm concerned that the place works well, so they're on top of their game," said Kinton, a Woburn native who lives in Winchester.

Kinton also talks to people as he goes, including a state trooper who filled him in yesterday on a suspicious substance that turned out to be heart medication and a passenger the airport boss used to coach in soccer.

"How's business?" he asked the employees at a Swatch watch store. "Make some money."

Nearly five hours after the walk-through began in Terminal C, it ended in Terminal E. Deputy director Lombardo had eight pages of fixes to pass out. Jack Hemphill, Massport's business general manager, was thankful the emergency call boxes wouldn't be among them.

"Big sigh of relief," Kinton said earlier in the day, pointing at Hemphill after testing one outside a parking garage.

A problem with the call system, on a day like yesterday, Hemphill said, "could be devastating for me."

Locally, public access to arrival areas won't be curtailed
25 January 2011
The Boston Globe

Local airport officials said they have no immediate plans to change security measures after the bombing at the Moscow airport yesterday that killed dozens of people in an arrivals hall, an area of airports that is generally open to the public.

Securing the arrivals area of airports would be a massive and expensive undertaking, authorities said.

"To secure baggage-claim areas, you'd have to secure the entire terminal building," said Tom Malafronte, spokesman for Manchester- Boston Regional Airport in New Hampshire.

At Logan International Airport, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, and T.F. Green Airport in Warwick, R.I., people picking up passengers can reach the domestic arrivals and baggage claim areas without going through security.

The international baggage claim in Logan's Terminal E is in the secure US Customs area, where bags are screened for food and drugs, but there is a public waiting area on the other side of the locked doors.

The airports, all of which have a regular police presence, declined to offer specifics on security measures.

The Transportation Security Administration said it is monitoring the attack in Moscow. "As always, we are working with our international partners to share information regarding the latest terrorist tactics," the agency said in a statement. "Passengers may continue to notice unpredictable security measures in all areas of US airports, both before and after the security checkpoint. These measures include explosive detection technology, canine teams, and Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams, among other measures both seen and unseen."

Making an entire airport secure is unrealistic, said Theodore Postol, a professor of science, technology, and national security policy at MIT.

Every car and bus entering the property would have to be checked; every person entering the building would have to be screened at the curb or at a remote location, which airports aren't set up to do.

"That's a humongous effort, and it requires securing many entry points, all of which have to be able to handle high loads of people," Postol said. "If you closed off the whole airport, you'd make flying essentially impractical."

The best way to prevent such attacks is through gathering intelligence, Postol said, but eliminating them is impossible. "You're never going to be able to defend against attacks where people are using high explosives and are willing to die," he said.

BOS - Boston Logan International Airport

image hosted on flickr

Untitled by cvillandry, on Flickr

General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport (IATA: BOS, ICAO: KBOS, FAA LID: BOS) is located in the East Boston neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, US (and partly in the town of Winthrop, Massachusetts). It covers 2,384 acres (965 ha), has six runways, and employs an estimated 16,000 people. The largest airport in New England, as of 2010, Logan is the 19th busiest airport in the United States with about 13.5 million boardings a year and 28 million passengers overall in 2011.

Boston serves as a focus city for JetBlue Airways. Delta Air Lines and US Airways also carry out many operations from the airport, and all major airlines fly to Boston from all or the majority of their primary and secondary hubs. It is also a destination of many major European airlines. The airport is also a hub for regional airline Cape Air. The airport has service to destinations in the United States, as well as Africa, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico and Asia

Originally called East Boston Airport, Logan opened on September 8, 1923, and was used primarily by the Massachusetts Air Guard and the Army Air Corps. At that time, it was known as Jeffery Field. The first scheduled commercial passenger flights were initiated by Colonial Air Transport between Boston and New York City in 1927.

The airport has expanded over the years, including the 1940s addition of 1,800 acres (730 ha) of landfill in Boston Harbor and the incorporation of the former Governors, Noddle's and Apple Islands. In 1943 the state renamed the airport as General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport after a Spanish-American War officer from South Boston. In 1952 the airport became the first in the United States with an indirect rapid transit connection.

The December 1950 diagram shows a familiar layout: 7,000 ft (2,100 m) runway 4L, 10000-ft 4R, 7000-ft 9 and 7650-ft 33. The March 1947[clarification needed] shows 7,000 ft (2,100 m) runway 4 (future 4L) in use, with runways 9 and 33 under construction; a different runway 33 ran 6,700 ft (2,000 m) northwestward from the present intersection of 4R and 9, and runway 25 ran 4,000 ft (1,200 m) southwest from the present intersection of 4L and 33.

The era of the jumbo jet began at Logan during the summer of 1970 when Pan Am inaugurated daily Boeing 747 service to London Heathrow Airport. Non-stop flights to London now are scheduled by British Airways, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Virgin Atlantic.

When Terminal E opened in 1974 it was the second largest international arrivals facility in the United States. Since that time the number of international travelers using Logan has tripled. International long-haul travel has been the fastest growing market sector at Logan. Increased passenger traffic led the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) to embark on a major airport renewal project called the "Logan Modernization Project" from 1994 to 2006. The project included a new parking garage, a new hotel, moving walkways, terminal expansions and improvements, and a two-tiered roadway system that separates arrival from departure road traffic.

Massport's relationship with neighboring communities has been strained since the mid-1960s, when the agency took control of a parcel of residential land and popular fishing area near the northwest side of the airfield. This project was undertaken to extend Runway 15R/33L, which would later become Logan's longest runway. Residents of the neighborhood, known as Wood Island, were bought out of their homes and forced to relocate. Public opposition came to a head when residents lay down in the streets to block bulldozers and supply trucks from reaching the intended construction zone.

Construction was completed on an additional runway, 14/32, which officially opened to air traffic on November 23, 2006. Runway 14/32 was Logan's first major runway addition in more than forty years. This runway was first proposed in 1973, but had been delayed by court action.

In April 2007 the FAA approved construction of a center field taxiway long-sought by Massport to alleviate congestion. The 9,300-foot (2,830 m) taxiway is between, and parallel to, Runways 4R/22L and 4L/22R. News of the project angered Logan's neighboring residents. In 2009 the new taxiway opened ahead of schedule and under budget. To ensure the taxiway is not mistaken for a runway, "TAXI" is written in large yellow letters at each end.

Logan last had service to Asia in 2001, when Korean Air discontinued service to Seoul, South Korea. Boston also had previous service to Asia with El Al to Tel Aviv. In 2008, Massport announced that Hainan Airlines had formally applied to the Civil Aviation Administration of China for approval to operate daily non-stop passenger flights between Boston and Beijing using Boeing 787 aircraft, but the service never started. In May 2011 Japan Airlines announced its first Boeing 787 route, Tokyo Narita to Boston, beginning four times weekly on April 22, 2012 and becoming daily on June 1, 2012. American Airlines will codeshare on the route.

The Airbus A380 first landed at Logan Airport for compatibility checks in February 2010. The airplane was also transporting a submarine back to its manufacturer for later use in the search for Air France Flight 447. Logan Airport has since served as a diversion for A380 flights, particularly for Air France.

By 2012 JetBlue Airways became a major operator at Logan Airport.

Wikipedia


In 2011, Logan Airport served an all-time high of 28,800,000 passengers, a 5% increase from 2010. In 2010 Logan Airport handled about 27,428,962 passengers, about 3,681,739 of whom were international passengers. JetBlue carried 23.44% of all passengers for the 12-month period ending July 31, 2011; other leading carriers include US Airways (13.27%), Delta Air Lines (11.86%), and American Airlines (11.47%). These figures do not include US Airways Express or Delta Connection each of which has significant operations at Logan Airport. Logan Airport also handled over 546,000,000 pounds (248,000,000 kg) of cargo and mail.

As of February 2011, Logan ranks 14th among major U.S. airports for on-time domestic departures with 80 percent of domestic flights departing on time. The airport ranks 25th in on-time domestic arrivals with 76 percent of domestic flights arriving on time.

Terminals

The International Arrivals Hall located at Terminal E, ground level.
Logan International Airport has 103 gate positions total divided among four terminals, A, B, C, and E. All terminals are connected by pre-security shuttle buses, as well as between Terminals A, B and E via moving walkways pre-security. Moving walkways also connect the terminals to a central parking garage designed for consolidated service between all 4 terminals and the garage itself. The concession program at Logan is developed, leased and managed by AirMall USA (formerly BAA USA) in Terminals B and E and Westfield Concession Management Inc. in Terminals A and C.

Terminal A

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gordoninc/

Terminal A, which replaced a 1970s-era building designed by Minoru Yamasaki once occupied by the now-defunct Eastern Airlines, opened to passengers on March 16, 2005. The terminal, designed by Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum, is divided into a main terminal (housing gates A1-A12) and a satellite building (housing gates A13-A22). The main terminal and the satellite building are connected through an underground walkway. Terminal A houses airline lounges United Airlines United Club and for Delta Air Lines (Delta Sky Club). The latter is located in the satellite building on the 3rd floor, which is used exclusively for the Sky Club.

The building is the first airport terminal in the United States to be LEED certified for environmentally friendly design by the U.S. Green Building Council. Among the building's features are heat-reflecting roof and windows, low-flow faucets and waterless urinals, self-dimming lights, and storm water filtration.

Terminal B

Logan International Airport Terminal B - US Airways Side by LI Refugee, on Flickr

Terminal B opened in 1974. Pier B was completed for US Airways in 1974 and Pier A for American Airlines in 1975. Terminal B remained largely unchanged until the US Airways expanded its operations at Logan Airport in 1979 and improvements to Terminal B were constructed in 1980. From 1980 until 2000, numerous small projects including passenger seating area improvements, concessions expansions, and passenger lounges were completed at both piers. It is split into north and south buildings, with a parking garage located between the two buildings. The gates of the south building (primarily occupied by US Airways and housing a US Airways Club) are divided into three groups: B1-B3, B4-B14, and B15-B21. Gates B4-14 and B15-B21 are connected by a walkway post-security. The gates of the north building (primarily occupied by American Airlines, which operates an Admirals Club in the terminal building) are divided into two groups: B22-B36 and B37-B38. Gates B22-36 are generally used by American Airlines, while Gates B37 and B38 are home to Virgin America.

Terminal C

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gordoninc/

Terminal C opened in 1967. It was renovated in 1987, in 2002, and in 2005. It has three groups of gates: C11-C21, C25-C36, and C40-C42. The two Terminal C security checkpoints providing access to Gates C11 through C21 on the left and Gates C25 to C36 on the right were replaced by a common checkpoint on July 28, 2011. The Terminal D gates (the three gates at the north end of Terminal C) were renumbered and labeled as part of Terminal C on February 28, 2006. The terminal services for Cape Air, United Airlines, and mainly for JetBlue Airways. JetBlue and Massport are undergoing a "reshuffle" of the Airlines so that Jetblue will acquire all of Terminal C.[citation needed] This will enable the airline to have 150+ daily flights from Boston, almost the same as their operations at JFK. This will be Logan's first airline to have their own terminal in Boston.

The airport's USO Lounge is located in the baggage claim area of Terminal C, lower level. It offers most typical amenities as other markets as major as Greater Boston. Military ID is mandatory. Terminal C also houses a United Club.

Terminal E

Logan Terminal E by BillKatyGemma, on Flickr

Terminal E, also known as the John A. Volpe International Terminal named after the former Governor of Massachusetts and U.S. Secretary of Transportation, serves as the international terminal for Logan Airport. All 13 Terminal E gates are designated as common-use, meaning the gates may be assigned mostly depending on an operational need. All ticket counters and gates in Terminal E are shared among the international carriers, except for the counters and gates leased by Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways. The terminal houses airline lounges for Aer Lingus (Gold Circle Lounge), Air France (Air France Lounge), British Airways (First Lounge and Terraces Lounge), Lufthansa (Senator Lounge and Business Lounge), and Virgin Atlantic (Clubhouse Lounge). Also Minnesota based Sun Country Airlines flies seasonally out of the terminal along with fellow year round domestic carrier Southwest Airlines.

Unlike the other terminals, where each terminal's upper level is used for departures while the lower level is used for arrivals, in Terminal E the third level is used for departures while the ground level is used for arrivals and customs. The second level is used for passport control. The Federal Inspection Station (FIS) located in Terminal E is capable of processing over 2,000 passengers per hour.

Emirates launched its daily, non-stop service between Dubai and Boston yesterday. Boston becomes the airline’s eighth US destination and the 142nd on its global network which links key tourism and trading destinations across six continents. Here are some photos from the inaugural flight — at Boston Logan International Airport.
