Logan Fees and Fuel Prices.

Out of curiosity just checked on skyvector. The fuel prices are also extremely hefty in Logan and in Bedford/Hanscom. On average Massport is charging USD 2.50 - 3.00 more than the surrounding fields. Maybe the FAA need to be informed about that and on top of this all Massport run airports should be boycotted by GA and business aviation. Beverly, Lawrence, Norwood, Marshfield are still very good alternatives and with a little coordination with their local FBO's transportation to downtown is not a problem.

re: Logan sucks!!!

Fortunately, Beverley Airport, a 25-minute drive to the north, loves general aviation, and even offers free customs. Logan has a great location, but Massport clearly doesn't want us using the airports it operates.

It's nice to see that they respect General Aviation pilots and work towards making their fees and costs reasonable! (this represents sarcasm, of course)

Fees

I believe that this is the only FBO left at Logan, an airport that hates GA more than any other public North American airport (thanks to Massport). I called Signature just to see how bad the fees are, and here's what I got for a two-night stay in a Piper Cherokee (note that not all of them are under Signature's control):

$33.00 landing fee

$166.60 parking (2 nights)

$48.40 GA fee (!!)

$56.00 security fee

$28.00 handling fee (waived with 7 gallons fuel purchase)

I didn't ask about a customs fee, but there's a steep one at Bedford/Hanscom (also run by Massport), so I expect there's one here as well. I think the security fee is for being poked, prodded, and metal-detected by the TSA, just like if you were flying on the airlines.

By comparison, if I flew my Cherokee into Washington/Dulles (another large airport affected by 9/11) and parked at the Signature there, I'd pay an $8.00 landing fee, $18.19/night parking, no customs fee, no security fee, no GA fee, and the same $28.00 handling fee (waived with 7 gallon fuel purchase).
