Logan International to Offer Most Low-Cost Trans-Atlantic Flights
Logan International Airport, a New England Council member, is on track to offer the most low-cost trans-Atlantic flights of any airport in the United States. The distinction comes as more low-cost European airlines are adding Boston to their list of destinations.
Over the past year, airlines such as Iceland-based WOW air and Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA have started flying in and out of Logan, creating low-cost flights between Boston and a host of European cities. More carriers, including Thomas Cook Airlines and Air Berlin, will begin flying direct from the airport later this spring, bringing the number of low-cost trans-Atlantic airlines at Logan into the double digits.
“We’ve had a huge influx,” said NEC Board Member Thomas Glynn, Chief of the Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and operates Logan International. “It’s a good thing for the market because people have more choices.”
The New England Council congratulates Logan International on its exciting expansion.
