Maybe it has something to do with Pat Moscaritolo, who headed up the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau before stepping down from his job earlier this year after 28 years at the helm. Before that he was director of Boston’s Logan International Airport for a decade or so and, during his time there, he created a marketing department to focus on developing new nonstop international routes from Europe to Boston. From out of nowhere, Boston ranks No. 13 on the Top Ports of Entry in the USA according to preliminary data released last month by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Travel and Tourism Office.
And now, airlines analyst John Grant tells us in a recent OAG blog, the outlook is even brighter for Boston. This year, he writes “some 48 airlines will operate scheduled services to Boston compared to 39 in 2015 with new entrants such as Norwegian, Frontier, Hawaiian, Korean and Air Maroc all seeing opportunities. And with both JetBlue and Delta Air Lines publicly stating an intent to grow in the next couple of years what more can we expect?”
