If you fly Southwest Airlines, you would soon be using a new terminal at Logan International Airport.
Southwest Airlines in Boston will move from Terminal A to Terminal B on August 29th, according to the announcement made by Massport. After August 29th, all ticketing and operations will take place at Terminal B Gates 31A-35. The changes will reflect through updated airport signage.
The terminal B is under the optimization process for a budget of nearly $200 million, and the move to move Terminal A to Terminal B is a part of that plan. Under the program, 70,000 square feet of the existing terminal will witness renovation, and 75,000 square feet of new space will be added.
Now, the terminal connects all 37 gates post-security, unites three TSA checkpoints into one, and provides new Automated Screening Lanes. According to a press release, Americal Airlines shifted all of its operations to one side of the terminal, freeing up several gates for the Southwest plan.
As a part of the project, Great Hall was introduced into Terminal B in June, which includes exhibits that celebrate New England athletes and sports teams. The hall also contains couches and lounge chairs, a pet relief station, a wall of energy-efficient windows, a dedicated area for kids, and local restaurants.
Southwest has been servicing Logan Airport since 2009.
