Southwest Airlines CEO Announces Future Service to Boston


Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly announced at our Chicago Message to the Field lat night that Southwest Airlines plans to begin service to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) sometime this fall. 


  1. I’m a United Airlines 1K and I really mainly fly to their hubs (Chicago, DC, Denver, Los Angeles) and occasionally Seattle (easy connection through SFO) but I’m looking forward to see how SWA does at Logan. I usually fly First class too so I’m not interested in downgrading but I’m sure some of my friends and family will be excited about this new service. Also looking forward to seeing where they’ll put the gates and the counter. Possibly in the Terminal C arrivals level (former TermD) where AirTran used to be. I haven’t seen any planes at the D gates in years. I’ve also noticed that SW fares are typically the same or even higher than UA and AA so I’m interested to see how they’ll stack up. Might just have to give them a try sometime for kicks.

  2. It will be so good to have an airline serve Boston whose employees realize the customer is the reason they have a job. Also,now I won’t have to be gouged by Airtran or Delta when flying out of Baltimore to Boston.

  3. Thank you so much for providing service to BOSTON! Just hope it is from Pittsburgh or Cleveland so we can access it! We fly SW to Seattle & F;proda to visit our kids, but don’t use SW to visit kids in Boston because we had to fly to Portland to get there! Love flying SW! Now just remove the peanuts so our grandkids (allergic to peanuts) can fly w/us!

  4. HOORAY! Our daughter is in school and needs that flight from Boston to RDU!!!! Can’t wait–the sooner the better!
    Durham, NC

  5. I’m hopeful that Austin will be one of the selected cities that will fly to/from Logan!

  6. I have been waiting for Southwest Airlines to come to Boston…I have in the past flown from Providence Ri but I would like to See Southwest fly from Boston to Toronto and other major
    cities…..Thank You southwest

  7. Terrific News!! Can’t wait for my favorite airline, Southwest to go to Boston! Hope you include LI, Mac Arthur airport to fly out of to Boston!! Thank you SWA…
