Southwest Lands at Logan, Bringing Low Fares Mainstream

Frequent Flyer A

Next week Southwest Airlines Co. will do something that Herbert Kelleher, its legendary former chief executive, said would never happen: The airline will offer flights at Boston’s Logan International Airport.

Long viewed as a congested, expensive big-city airport, Logan is now the darling of discounters, boasting a new terminal, new runway, new parking and easy access through a new harbor tunnel. JetBlue Airways Corp. is now the biggest airline there in terms of flights and nonstop destinations, and has been gobbling up customers from American, Delta Air Lines and other airlines. Virgin America, AirTran, Sun Country and Spirit all land at Logan, as well.
