Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
From Gatwick: Norwegian depart from the South Terminal. The departure lounge is similar to a small shopping mall with a great variety of places to eat and shop. As you're leaving the EU you can enjoy duty free shopping in a range of designer and high street shops. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located on the upper level, while stores are on the lower level. There's one executive lounge in the South Terminal, run by No.1 Traveller. Entry prices start at £28* if you book in advance, or £35* on the door. If you just want to get your head down and do a bit of work before your flight you can hop into one of the Regus Express Work Pods (£10* per half hour).
From Heathrow: Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic fly from Terminal 3 while British Airways depart from Terminal 5. Check your departure terminal carefully: Terminal 5 is an extra stop on the tube and train. Both terminals have a great array of designer shops and nice restaurants.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Boston-Logan International Airport has a free shuttle bus which connects all of the terminals. The shuttle also runs to the MBTA Blue Line Airport Station. Tickets on the metro (blue line) cost $2.50* (about £1.75). If you want to take the red line, catch the Silver Line bus to South Station. This bus is free if you're coming from the airport, but you'll need to pay for a ticket on the way back. If you're planning to take a taxi you can expect to pay about $25* (less than £18) for the trip into the city centre. Car hire is also available from the airport, perfect if you're planning a road trip around New England. Compare car hire at Boston-Logan International Airport.
Aim to arrive at the airport at least two hours before scheduled departure. You will need a valid passport to fly to Boston from London. Most British citizens are eligible for the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) which allows you to enter the states for up to 90 days visa-free. Exceptions include anyone who's ever been arrested, people who has been to Syria, Sudan, Iran or Iraq since 2011, anyone who has dual nationality with these countries, and anyone who is planning to work or volunteer during their time stateside. If in doubt, contact the US Embassy.
