|Strategically situated in the heart of New England, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) is located less than fifty miles north of Boston, Massachusetts and less than an hour’s drive from the region’s most popular ski areas, scenic seacoast beaches and peaceful lakefront resorts.Although the airport’s recent success has brought it into the national spotlight, Manchester is an airport rich with history, from playing host to Amelia Earhart when she touched down there en route to Montreal, to serving as an Army Air Corps base during World War II. By the 1980s, the airport began its transition to a regional commercial airport, adding jet service from several major airlines.
During the past decade, the airport has dramatically improved airport facilities and infrastructure, and increased both passenger and cargo airline services. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is now widely considered the premier airport in northern New England and a convenient alternative airport serving the greater Boston area. Easy access, competitive airfares, ample affordable parking and a comprehensive schedule of non-stop and direct jet service make Manchester the airport of choice in New England.
Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is served by a number of major airlines, including Air Canada, Continental, Delta, Southwest Airlines, United, and US Airways. The airport’s modern passenger terminal offers many amenities typically found at larger, hub airports including a business center, an array of dining and shopping options, as well as rental car agencies and other transportation options.
“We are experiencing a period of dramatic change in the airline industry brought about by the economy and continuing fuel price instability,” said Mark Brewer, Airport Director. “However, our focus remains the same – to offer safe, dependable and affordable air service to our region while continuing to provide an efficient and customer focused travel experience. In other words, hassle-free from roadway to runway”
