Boston Logan International has four terminals. These are lettered Terminal A–E. Terminal D no longer exists, after its gates were reconfigured into Terminal C and Terminal E in 2006. Some of the terminals are connected and the airport's long-term goal is to have each terminal easily accessible from each other by foot.

Terminal A

Terminal A opened in 2005 and replaced one of the old terminal buildings that was constructed in the 1970s. Delta has been the primary airline using this terminal since the terminal was built and took full control of the terminal in 2019. The only other airline that uses Terminal A is WestJet Encore, which flies to Canada on a codeshare agreement with Delta.

Terminal B

Terminal B opened in 1974 and is split into two sub-terminals – Terminal B south and Terminal B north, which is connected by a walkway airside. Popular airlines that operated out of Terminal B include American Airlines, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines.

Terminal C

Terminal C opened in 1967 and facilitates a variety of domestic and international flights from airlines including Aer Lingus, Cape Air, JetBlue and TAP Air Portugal. The terminal has undergone four major renovations since it was created, with the most recent in 2016 — this renovation saw Terminal C connect to Terminal E so that passengers could have easy access between the two terminals.

Terminal E

Terminal E was built in 1974 and is known as the airport's international terminal. It facilitates most — but not all — of the airport's international flights. Terminal E completed its most recent renovation in 2017, which saw the terminal upscale and improve many of its facilities, as well as giving it the capability to handle Airbus A380 aircraft.
