Boston – General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport Abbreviation Code

Boston’s Logan International Airport has a rich history that dates back to 1923, when it was first established by the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). Initially known as Boston Municipal Airport, it was the first airport in the United States built specifically for commercial air service. The airport was initially used for mail and freight operations but quickly grew to include passenger flights. In 1940, the name was changed to General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport in honor of a distinguished local soldier and politician who had passed away two years prior. In 1956, Massport began expanding the airport’s facilities and services to accommodate an increasing number of passengers. By 1963, Boston Logan had become one of the busiest airports in the country with more than five million passengers per year. Over the next several decades, Logan continued to expand its facilities and services until 2001 when it became one of only four airports in North America with six runways and three terminals. Today, Boston Logan serves more than 40 million passengers annually and is considered one of the best airports in North America.
