Everyone was super nice and the flight attendant was so nice and friendly and asked if we would like him to take our trash when we excited the plane.

If you are planning a trip from Boston to the Big Apple then book your flights with Orbitz to ensure you get the best deal. It is only a short hop by plane, and with hundreds of flights between the cities every day you are sure to find a bargain.
From Boston Logan International there are flights to all three of New York’s major airports – LaGuardia, Newark and New York John F Kennedy International – so choose the arrival point that is most convenient for you. The busiest route is to LaGuardia: it sees 650,000 people fly there from Boston each year.
Delta, American, United and JetBlue all operate between the two cities and, with dozens of flights each day, you can also pick a flight that gets you to New York at the right time.
Boston and New York are just 190 miles apart and it only takes an hour to get from one to the other by plane. The jets that fly between the two cities can reach top speeds of more than 500mph and you will only be in the air for around 45 minutes – the rest of the journey time is spent taxiing to and from the terminal buildings.
The planes do not fly in a straight line between the two cities, and the route they take depends on the weather and the airport they are flying to. Flights to JFK, for example, usually head out to sea. The flights pass over Plymouth, where the Founding Fathers landed, and head down the coast and over Long Island.
Flights to LaGuardia and Newark often take a more inland route, sometimes heading as far west as the Appalachians: grab a seat on the right of the plane if you are hoping to glimpse views of the mountain range.
Although the journey only takes around 70 minutes you will need to be at the airport well before your scheduled departure time. You should check in an hour before your flight is due to depart. You will need some ID to board the plane but, as the flight is domestic, US citizens do not need a passport. Non-US citizens, however, will need to show their passport.
There are lots of different fares available between the two cities, so when you book make sure you know if your ticket includes checked baggage – some airlines charge extra for suitcases.
Although the cities are close together flying is the quickest way to get from Boston to New York, even taking the journey to and from the airport into account.
Boston Logan International, which handles 40 million passengers a year, is one of the easiest to get to in the country. It’s just three miles from downtown Boston.
There are lots of dining and shopping options, so if you arrive early there is still plenty to do while you wait for your flight. Logan Airport opened in the 1920s and the first ever commercial flights from Boston to New York began in 1927.

Consider flying out early in the week to save on your airfare. Orbitz data from 2020 shows that Monday is the cheapest day to depart, followed by Tuesday. Saturday showed the highest average ticket prices likely because many travelers prefer to start their vacation on a weekend.
We won't keep you guessing, according to Orbitz data the cheapest month to fly is August. Perfect for those who need a weekend getaway, or just a break from it all before the weather changes. Be aware that the most expensive time to fly is the height of summer, with ticket prices peaking in the month of June.
To really save big on your next vacation, think outside the box. Select two different airlines or fare types for your return trip and you'll generally get a much better deal. Those who tried this on Orbitz in 2020 saved up to 45% on their airfares. Get mixing and matching today!
