Will Logan Airport Numbers Keep Climbing?

By Bob Weiss

BOSTON (CBS) — Logan Airport celebrated its 36 millionth passenger this week, but the question is, will this growth continue until the airport averages 100,000 people a day?

As the new year begins, these 10 questions may hold some answers:

  1. Will Norwegian Shuttle fly to more European destinations?
  1. Will European carriers match low-cost airline fares?
  1. Can Logan handle increased morning flights by Delta and JetBlue?
  1. Will airlines crackdown on large carry-on items?
  1. Can the TSA reduce the wait times to clear security at peak times?
  1. Where will Logan park passenger cars? Garages are full.
  1. When will ride sharing come to the airport?
  1. How will curbside congestion in Terminal C be eased?

9. What is expected from Southwest international flights?

  1. Will other New England airports add international service?

  1. Will Norwegian Shuttle fly to more European destinations? Not from Logan in 2017. 2018 may bring us Stockholm, Barcelona and either Paris or Rome.

    Will European carriers match low-cost airline fares? Yes they are already. Summer 2017 fares are cheapest in years.

    Can Logan handle increased morning flights by Delta and JetBlue? Yes but it won’t be fun for anyone.

    Will airlines crackdown on large carry-on items? Hopefully not – but WOW and Spirit already play that game.

    Can the TSA reduce the wait times to clear security at peak times? Not sure

    Where will Logan park passenger cars? Overflow lots again

    When will ride sharing come to the airport? No idea

    How will curbside congestion in Terminal C be eased? No idea

    What is expected from Southwest international flights? Fort Lauderdale will be the growth area- problem is they do not currently run a Boston Ft. Lauderdale flight. They may throw a weekly flight to Cancun or Aruba someday from Logan.

    Will other New England airports add international service? Yes TF Green in Rhode Island will get Norwegian to Edinburgh, Cork, Shannon, and maybe Manchester UK. They are already hiring for it.
