Flights From Boston Airport Get More Expensive

Prices for flights out of Logan International Airport rose more than 10.3 percent last fall compared to a year ago, substantially more than the increases nationally.

High fuel costs remain, and airlines continue to try to raise fares. At the same time, new JetBlue service out of Boston to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport with introductory $25 fares could bring down Logan prices.
