AirTran Pushing to Expand at Logan

Having already outgrown its three gates in the aging Terminal D, AirTran has in recent weeks had to send some passengers on a long walk upstairs to a fourth gate it is renting in Terminal C from United Airlines.


"It was a little confusing up here," Borlace said. He also called the space "old and worn out," pointing at a long, jagged crack in the floor of the AirTran check-in area.

Terminal D was once the "new" international terminal Logan opened in September 1964, before replacing it with the John A. Volpe International Terminal E a decade later, and it has been only minimally revamped since.

"It's been convenient flying in here, but it makes sense to consolidate from a business standpoint," said Derek Van Tichelt, an executive with a Chicago railroad equipment supplier who has been flying weekly on AirTran to Boston for a local project.
