Manchester-Boston Regional Airport News

Recommended Posts

I went to Manchester Airport today for the first time in about 2 years. It is Huge now. They have this HUGE parking garage, a catwalk, and an underpass under a taxi way. A big change from two years ago. I see why so many like Manchester Airport better that Logan. And they are making a connector road from the Everett Turnpike to the airport. I think that is going to be finnished in 2008.

I've used this airport 3 times and picked people up twice and I have to agree that it is very handy for anyone north of Boston and south of Concord.

The access road has been held up by a pair of nesting eagles and I'm not sure what the latest word has been on that but it will dramatically improve this airports viability as an alternative to Logan.

I'd like to see rail service to the Manchester airport from Boston. I've flown out of providence and hartford as alternatives to logan but not Man. I'm all for the smaller airports getting bigger since no new airport will ever happen inside rt 495.

Manchester Airport just expanded on the 19th of Feb. It opened a 75,000 sq ft passenger terminal occupied by Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines. The expansion also included four jet gates with associated passenger hold rooms, 60 feet of additional airline ticket counters, 2 baggage carousels, the Nutfield Cafe and Brew Pub, 2 Hudson News and gift locations, a buisness center and its own TSA security screening checkpoints.

I can't believe how much the airport has changed. When I left NH in 1990 they were still having the New England Esquadrill Air Show there and it was a small community airport. What a difference 15 years makes!

The Airport has grown exponentially. And the revitalization of Manchester and its downtown is amazing as well. You should come up to visit and take a look at how much this city has changed...and its STILL changing.

I hope to get back up there in the future. My dad was there last year and he said it is still very nice. I liked how you could go from being in the middle of the city to being out on the farm in less than 10 minutes.
