The Kid’s Guide to Logan Airport

Posted On: 02/01/2017

Kidports in Terminal A, B and C are fun play areas designed to keep kids occupied while parents unwind during their time at Logan. Terminal A’s Kidport, located next to Gate 18, offers Playtime LLC climbing structures sure to keep children occupied. Kids can play pilot and air traffic controller with a miniature replica of Boston Logan Airport. Near the play area are plenty of kid-approved restaurants, such as Auntie Anne’s, Friendly’s and Wendy’s (as well as healthier options). There are also nearby coffee shops and a Harpoon Tap Room for parents.

Not flying out of Terminal A? Terminals B & C each offer their own safe play areas for kids. Terminal B’s is near Gate B30, and Terminal C’s is near Gate 25. Terminal C’s Kidport has vintage-style airplane replicas for kids to climb all over. An airfield carpet and cloud-painted walls allows your child to become their own airplane. This Kidport has a seating area for parents, as well as a TV.

Logan Airport showcases permanent and rotating public art exhibits, perfect for taking your kid on an exploration around the Terminal, while also supporting the local New England arts. Speak to a representative at one of Massport’s public information desks located around the lower levels of the terminals to find the art exhibits you’re looking for.

Logan makes it easy to travel with infants. Each terminal has numerous armchairs for resting mothers throughout the airport. All bathrooms, men’s and women’s, are equipped with baby changing stations. Nursing rooms, with changing stations, outlets and chairs, are also spread around the terminals for your convenience.
