The last twelve months for Boston Logan Airport have been important in terms of international route growth. Logan has added four new carriers Copa, Emirates, Turkish and now Hainan Airlines. There would have been a fifth but Wow Air out of Reykjavik has shelved their plans to fly to Boston for now. One of the most important and anticipated additions is certainly Hainan.
North American passengers probably haven’t heard much about Hainan, but like other Chinese carriers they are growing fast. With the addition of a Chinese carrier, Boston is solidifying itself as a top destination for business and leisure travel. Boston was one of the top US markets not to have a flight to mainland China, not capitalizing on the immense wealth growth of Chinese nationals. Connecting the large population of Chinese residence and immigrants in the Boston area has long been a target on the radar of politicians and businesses. Hainan Airlines is here to fill that need.
First Ever Boston to Beijing Flight
Getting around Boston Logan for international travel has always been a little more difficult than other airports. Terminal E seems overextended and difficult to manage (it’s not the friendliest). You can have problems trying to find a place to sit down and security lines can back up for hours; once you get through security, however, there are plenty of interesting options of things to do around this international terminal.

Legal Sea Foods has been at the core of Boston sea food and New England restaurant industry since 1950, but it seems like every couple of months they have something new to try (especially at the Test Kitchen!). I’d been to the Legal Test Kitchen in Boston’s Seaport District and Legal Sea Foods in the Prudential Building, but never had checked out any of Legal’s restaurants at the airport. Admittedly, I was a little apprehensive about the idea of eating in the airport.
