Logan Airport Prepares for Winter Weather
Passengers encouraged to contact their airline before heading to the airport
BOSTON -- Logan Airport is preparing for a winter weather event starting Thursday morning, February 13. Crews will be working throughout the storm to keep the airfield open, unless conditions make snow removal operations unsafe. Airlines are cancelling flights in advance of the storm and delays are likely.
Massport encourages passengers to contact their airline on flight status before heading to the airport. Passengers can also receive airport information at flylogan.com or up-to-date airport delay information at fly.faa.gov.
Most domestic airlines will have limited operations at Logan Thursday morning. Most international flights are expected to operate, but passengers should check with their airline. The airport does not cancel flights; that is a decision made by individual airlines.
Once the winter weather passes, airlines will begin re-accommodating passengers affected by cancellations and delays. This process could take time and passengers are encouraged to contact their airline before heading to the airport. In the event of excessive delays or diversions, Massport will work with airlines to provide passengers with cots.
