Massport Completes Modernisation of Boston Logan Terminal E

The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) has celebrated the completion of its Terminal E modernisation project at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).

This project has constructed four new gates in the airport’s international terminal alongside additional amenities to support increased operations and passenger numbers.

Terminal E’s new security checkpoint now feeds into an open space with high ceilings that optimise natural light. Here, passengers can enjoy new concessions and departure lounges.

In total, the project has added approximately 390,000 square feet of new space and has renovated the existing Terminal E structure to create a unified building.

Governor Maura Healey said:

“Logan International Airport is a critical economic engine for our state. These fantastic new upgrades at Terminal E are going to supercharge that engine and help to elevate our image on the world stage. We are thrilled with the completion of this new step forward at Logan, and we are grateful to Massport, the Biden Administration and our Congressional delegation for their leadership and partnership on this critical project.”

Boston Logan’s modernised Terminal E now features:

  • A new TSA 7-lane security checkpoint with Analogic Computed Tomography (CT)  scanners
  • An expanded Arrivals Level curb
  • An expanded ticketing area
  • Over 100,000 sq. footage of new hold room and concession space
  • An enhanced outbound baggage handling system and increased baggage claim capacity
  • Advanced amenities and seating options to enhance the passenger experience, including a mother’s room and a sensory room

Notably, the terminal’s new Sensory Room features interactive stations that focus on balance, light therapy and cognitive/memory improvement. It also includes a room that replicates a plane’s cabin to help passengers acclimate themselves to the experience of flying.

In addition, the modernisation project has integrated several environmental features including photovoltaic window glazing, glare controlling View® glass and an energy-efficient displacement ventilation system.

Massport Board Chair Patricia Jacobs said:

“Modernising Terminal E represents Massport’s strong commitment to strengthening our role as an economic engine and connecting the people and businesses of New England to the world. These improvements to Logan create a more efficient, enjoyable travel experience for our passengers today and into the future.”

Terminal E was first built in 1974 with 12 gates. The four new gates now bring the total number to 16.
