How Early Must You Arrive At Boston’s Logan Airport For Travel?
I'm recently back from Sarasota, Florida after spending a long weekend in the sunshine state. The weather was everything I expected, sunny, warm and beachy! I don't travel as much as Marjo does in a calendar year, but I'd sure like to change that.
For the infrequent traveler, when to arrive at the airport is a common question. Yes, it matters what airport. The size of the airport, the amount of daily flights, the time of year... it all matters.
Airport size, number of annual passengers, number of annual enplanements, number of restaurants/bars, number of shops, number of lounges, percentage of on-time departures, percentage of delayed departures, average TSA wait time, number of terminals, number of gates, number of airport employees, number of parking lots/decks, car traffic volume, and car traffic index.
Ensuring that you don't miss your flight is paramount, yes? I mean, for me it is! You don't plan a trip and spend a bunch of money just to miss your plane, do you? Arriving too early, however, is kind of boring though. 😂 So this begs the question...
How Early Must You Arrive At Boston's Logan Airport For Your Flight?
The person who I was traveling with to Sarasota with disagreed with me on how early we should get there. She thought we should arrive 2 hours early, I thought an hour and twenty should do the trick.
Fortunately, I have never had a problem not arriving super early, but it's not what they recommend.
Travelers at Logan should arrive 2 hours and 33 minutes ahead of their flights. -boston.com
