BOSTON (AP) — A trip to Logan International Airport is about to become more expensive.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

The Massachusetts Port Authority announced Wednesday it wants to raise parking rates at the airport while at the same time lowering rates at satellite lots. The goal is to ease traffic at the airport while also raising revenues.

Under the plan, the maximum daily charge at the terminal-area lots would jump from $24 to $27. Hourly rates at the central garage will remain the same for the first two hours, but will increase by $3 for subsequent time blocks.

Massport plans to cut daily rates at its Logan Express lots from $11 to $7. The satellite lots in Woburn, Framingham, Braintree and Peabody require passengers to take a $22 shuttle. The price changes are expected to generate $10 million a year.
