Logan International Airport - Alternate Airports

Alternate Airports

To address Logan Airport's overcrowding, Massport has designated two out-of-state airports as the second and third airports of Boston: Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire, located approximately 44 statute miles (71 km) north-northwest of Logan, which converts to an average drive time of 48 minutes via I-93; and T. F. Green Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island, located 63 statute miles (101 km) south-southwest of Logan, averaging a 1 hour, 8 minute drive to Logan via I-95, or a 75-minute ride on commuter rail from South Station. Massport does not operate these facilities.

Worcester Regional Airport in Worcester, which is also operated by Massport, provided some scheduled airline service until 2012. Scheduled airline service also exists at Hanscom Field in Bedford, Massachusetts, another facility operated by Massport.

Famous quotes containing the word alternate:

    It might become a wheel spoked red and white
    In alternate stripes converging at a point
    Of flame on the line, with a second wheel below,
    Just rising, accompanying, arranged to cross,
    Through weltering illuminations, humps
    Of billows, downward, toward the drift-fire shore.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
