With 126 days of snow a year, it’s not surprising that Boston Logan Airport faces its fair share of weather-related delays. According to Massport, the company that maintains Logan’s airfield, their delays aren’t only a result of snow falling in Boston, but are also caused by flight delays at other Northeast hubs for planes coming into Logan. Bad weather essentially causes a domino effect along the northeast. Further, Logan is the windiest major airport in the country. A typical Northeast cold front can produce wind gusts as high as 30 to 40 mph making it difficult to land.
About 30 minutes northwest of Boston Logan is Laurence G Hanscom Field in Bedford, MA (KBED). This is the airport we mainly use for charter flights and when operations at Logan begin to back up we’ve had success facilitating flights from this airport. That being said, if the conditions are not safe for flying, we must defer to the weather and like everyone else, wait it out.
