Boston Logan International Airport’s Terminal E Opens, Reimagines Passenger Experience for International Travel

BOSTON, MA — AECOM, Suffolk, and luis vidal + architects are celebrating the official opening of the new, modernized Terminal E at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). Designed to be efficient, modern, and memorable, the enhanced Terminal E passenger experience better accommodates international demand in support of Massachusetts’s regional economy while minimizing community and environmental impact.

AECOM served as the prime consultant and architect, delivering full architectural and engineering services, and luis vidal + architects served as the vision architect. Suffolk provided preconstruction and construction management services, marking its fourth collaboration with AECOM on successful projects at Boston Logan.

“Massport conceived the new Terminal E as a modern, iconic, international terminal that elevates Logan International Airport’s reputation for providing an enhanced passenger experience,” said Terry Rookard, Principal Architect and Senior Vice President at AECOM. “We are incredibly proud to support Massport’s vision to revitalize the facility into a 21st century global hub. It is a testament to the strength of the Boston region’s demand for travel. We thank Massport and our stakeholders for their vision and dedication to making this project a success.”

The modernization includes 390,000 square feet of new and shared space, with an emphasis on an enhanced passenger experience, operational flexibility, and sustainability through a high-performing, resilient, and resource-efficient construction. Key program elements include the addition of the new gates, renovations to the existing terminal, departure lounges, concessions, international arrivals, improved wayfinding, and enhanced ticketing, plus a new passenger security checkpoint, airline clubs, baggage systems, and a central, multi-story great hall.

“Boston is one of the most elegant and welcoming cities in the world,” said Luis Vidal, President and Founding Partner of luis vidal + architects. “It was important to our entire design team that these words become part of the DNA of Logan’s new Terminal E. The result is a bold, striking building designed with sustainable principles and focused on providing a unique, comfortable, and healthy environment for passengers and workers alike.”

A central design feature is the terminal’s swooping red roof that reveals panoramic views of downtown Boston and the city’s skyline for departing passengers. The interior centers around the terminal’s great hall, which is flooded with natural sunlight. Sustainability initiatives include the incorporation of recycled materials, solar energy, electrification stations, electrochromic and photovoltaic glass, super insulation, and advanced interior and exterior building systems to minimize its carbon footprint. The terminal is seeking LEED Gold status from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“Logan International Airport Terminal E is Boston’s gateway to the world and is a testament to Massport’s forward-thinking vision for our great city,” said John Fish, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk. “Our team is honored to have implemented the most state-of-the-art tools and technologies to plan and manage the construction of this sophisticated project. Terminal E will forever stand as a symbol of innovation for the City of Boston and welcoming beacon for visitors throughout the world.”

For over two decades, AECOM has partnered with Massport to provide full-service architecture, interior design, and engineering services for five major terminal projects at Boston Logan.
