Logan officials have moved forward with plans to add four new gates at its crowded international terminal. But future plans to add another three gates have been put on pause by the pandemic, a sign of the long-term uncertainties facing the industry and the airport.
“Phase two will happen when we have a finance plan and the passenger demand resurfaces,” said Jennifer Mehigan, a Massport spokeswoman.
14/32 is getting it's first mill/overlay this summer. Pavement lasted 15 years which I think is a lot for a runway. Of course it doesn't get the volume of traffic or size of planes that say 4R-22L gets.Here a shoutout to Runway 14/32 which transformed Logan Airport starting 15 years ago (Dec 2006), From being one of the East Coast least predictable airports if the winds were unfavorable to being an airport where we don’t think of Logan anymore as crazy unreliable.
I think it should be a reminder that all modes work better if they have a system for being predictable
There are a lot of Cape Air flights. And there is general aviation traffic at Logan, I assume at least some of it is small enough for it?Speaking of runways... Does anyone actually still use 15L/33R? Other than cape and maybe boutique, I can't think of anyone that flies something small enough to use the thing.
Note that's only showing jet traffic. Cape Air's Cessnas and other prop planes aren't included in that.Massport shares the runway usage stats in a nice spreadsheet on their website. While 32 did have some arrivals in 2020 prior to the pandemic, since April of last year both 14/32 have not been used for any operations. Curious to know if that's due to volumes, airline/air traffic control preferences, other factors?
