History of Boston Logan Airport
The first Boston Logan airport departures took place in 1923. At that time it was mainly used by the Air National Guard and Army Air Corps. She also called it Jefferey Field. It was not until several years later before the first commercial flight took place to New York. About 10 years later, the airport was also used as a weather observation point. Due to the growth in the 1950’s, an extra piece of land was purchased. Several terminal buildings were also added, of which 2 are currently in use.
After the WW2 the airport became a transatlantic gateway with Europe. There were weekly flights to London with a stopover in Shannon. More and more routes were added with Pan Am and Air France. Due to the growth of the jumbo jets, another terminal was added. Terminal E opened in 1974 and was one of the largest arrival facilities in the US. After a long struggle for more land, the runway with the name 15R/33L could eventually be extended.
Runway 14/32 was built later with an opening in 2006. This eventually became the longest runway for the Logan arrivals of larger aircraft such as the Airbus A380. There were also more and more expansions with taxiways, parking lots, airport hotels and technological improvements to what it is today.
