Boston Logan Airport parking
There are 19,000 car parking spaces at Boston Logan and plans exist to add another 5,000, so there are plenty of on-site options ranging from premier reserved parking through to economy lots. There are three primary parking areas; garages for Terminal B and the central terminal area, plus a lot for Terminal E, all placed immediately next to the terminal buildings. The economy lot is just a short, free shuttle bus ride to the edge of the airport property.
All of the Logan Airport parking garages include electric vehicle charging stations, reserved parking spaces for electric and hybrid vehicles and complimentary jump starts, tire inflation and lock out assistance for all kinds of vehicle.
Picking up and dropping off
The three main parking areas charge tiered half-hourly rates as a short-term airport parking option near the terminals at BOS. These are ideal for drivers dropping off or picking up passengers or parking for only a few days.
If you're collecting someone from the airport and don't need to leave your car to meet them, they can call you from the front of the terminal when they're ready, whilst you wait in the free cell phone lot just seconds away. The designated pick-up and drop-off areas are found outside the arrivals and departures levels of the terminals.
The primary parking garages and lot next to the terminals offer short-term parking with a half-hourly rate and a daily maximum fee, which can be a good balance of convenience and cost if you're taking a short weekend or business trip.
Economy parking provides the ideal long-term parking option for passengers going on vacation or away for more than a week; half-hourly charges still apply, but daily maximums are much lower. Placed further from the terminal buildings, the economy lot is less convenient, but features a 24-hour complimentary shuttle service, so you will only have a short wait of a few minutes to get to or from your flight.
Frequent flier options
Regular travelers through Boston Logan can also benefit from some additional services provided by the airport itself. Exit Express is a card-based system linked to your credit card for instant, contactless payment when you leave arrivals. Lexus Parking PASSport Gold is a membership program that guarantees reserved parking. Specially designated areas of the various garages and lots can be accessed with the membership card.
Park and Ride at some off-site lots allow you to self-park and take a free shuttle bus to the terminal, whilst the valet services typically send a driver to meet you at the airport to park your car before you fly and return it when you get back.
