Did you know that JetBlue & Delta Air Lines hold the duopoly within Boston Logan International Airport, handling the most flights?
Using data from RadarBox.com, we will see where the airport is up to now, as well as what presence the two carriers have there.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Boston Logan Matching 2022’s Movements…
From May 30-June 6, Boston Logan handled 1,193 flights based on a seven-day rolling average provided by the flight tracking company.
This represents an increase of 1.71% compared to the same period last year and is still 132 movements short of 2019’s pre-COVID levels.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the airport:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|May 2-9||1229 movements||1122 movements||1176 movements||+4.81%|
|May 9-16||1284 movements||1130 movements||1187 movements||+5.04%|
|May 16-23||1236 movements||1142 movements||1209 movements||+5.87%|
|May 23-30||1299 movements||1157 movements||1188 movements||+2.68%|
What we can see from the data is that Boston Logan’s position compared to last year remains relatively the same, with gradual increases here and there.
However, more flights will have to be added in order to get closer to 2019’s numbers.
JetBlue & Delta Air Lines Hold The Duopoly In The Airport…
As we can see from the image above, JetBlue & Delta Air Lines hold the duopoly at Boston Logan.
JetBlue is the largest at 293 average daily flights, again based on a seven-day rolling average, with Delta Air Lines second with 275.
In comparison to American Airlines in third at 128, you can see the clear difference in who holds the domination within that airport.
Looking ahead to the peaks of the Summer 2023 season, it will be interesting to see which carrier will be able to acquire that #1 spot. Will it be Delta or JetBlue by the end of this busy season?
