Logan Officials Bracing For Hectic Few Days
BOSTON (CBS) — Officials at Logan Airport are getting ready for a hectic few days.
In addition to the Nor’Easter forecast for Thursday, February Vacation begins Friday afternoon.
Travelers are bracing for potential delays and cancellations.
During a Wednesday morning news conference, Logan Airport’s Director of Aviation Ed Freni said high vacation demand plus the storm may cause a ripple effect.
As of Wednesday morning, a total 3,067 flights were cancelled across the country. Atlanta was worst off with 828 departures cancelled and 803 arrivals cancelled.
Logan had 30 departures cancelled Wednesday morning and another 28 scheduled arrivals were cancelled.
In addition to delays and cancellations, parking may also be a problem at Logan.
“Parking at the airport has become a chronic problem with demand exceeding capacity nearly 50 days out of the year,’’ said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “No one wants to miss a flight because they could not find a place to park. Massport will work hard to accommodate passengers who need parking, but passengers may be sent off airport if there is no more room.’’
To help reduce vehicle trips to the airport, Massport provides Logan Express bus service from suburban locations in Braintree, Framingham, Woburn and Peabody and encourages travelers to use public transportation.
