Logan Int'l Airport (KBOS) - Jet Charter Services
Logan International Airport, officially known as General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, is located three miles east of downtown Boston in East Boston and Winthrop, the oceanside Boston suburb that is located on the north entrance to Boston Harbor.
It is the busiest airport – passenger and cargo -- in New England and the 17th busiest in the United States. In 2016, more than 36 million passengers used the airport. Its rapid growth in handling international flights has made Logan International one of the fastest growing airports in the United States.
And, despite it being busy and fast growing, Boston Logan International Airport users had a shorter wait time getting through security than any other airport in the United States. That earned it the title of TSA Airport of the Year in 2018.
And, despite it being busy, fast growing and having short TSA wait lines, Logan discovered a record number of guns trying to be taken through security, the TSA said.
Although none of that really matters to passengers flying out of Logan International Airport on private jets – they pass through private security screenings – it’s nice to know they are flying out of a safe airport.

Who is General Edward Lawrence Logan?
Edward L. Logan (1875-1939), Boston airport’s namesake, was a first generation Irish-American, military leader, civic leader and municipal judge who grew up in South Boston, according to the Boston Irish Tourist Association.
East Boston Airport was named after him in 1956 by statehouse lawmakers.
He was the eldest of nine children whose father was president of the Boston Brewing Company.
He went to Harvard University and enlisted in the 9th Irish Regiment of Massachusetts during the Spanish American War. He served stateside while several family members went to Cuba.
During World War I, Logan was the commander of the 101st Infantry regiment of the 26th Yankee Division.
He would later become a politician, serving in the statehouse as a representative and senator. After failing in a bid for a U.S. Congressional seat in 1906, he was appointed a judge in South Boston Municipal Court.
His early and sudden death was attributed to a heart ailment.
About Boston’s TSA award
Logan International Airport has much to brag about when it comes to its efficiency in getting passengers out of the airport and into the air.
TSA selected BOS as an “Innovation Airport” in 2018. That gives it a chance to pilot more new TSA programs such as its computed tomography scanning system – CAT scans -- at security checkpoints. In addition, BOS is a pioneer in the use of credential authentication technology that determines the validity of a passenger’s identification.
Logan International Airport is the fourth fastest growing airport in North America. Its busiest day ever was April 13, 2018, when TSA screened 75,620 passengers. But, despite the large number of passengers being screened, the average wait time is 9.6 minutes, the best in the nation.
