United Airlines is ready to move its operations to 10 new gates in terminal B at Boston Logan International airport on 30 April.

The move will allow the Chicago-based Star Alliance carrier to consolidate its operations from terminals A and C at the airport for the first time since its merger with Continental Airlines in 2010.

The new 9,012m2 (97,000ft2) facilities include 24 self-bag tagging kiosks, eight automated boarding gates and a 743m2 United Club.

“From our intuitive self-tagging kiosks to our efficient self-boarding gates, the new terminal B concourse offers more of the products and services our customers value,” says Jeff Foland, executive vice-president of marketing, technology and strategy at United, in a statement.

United is investing $30 million in the facilities with the balance of the $172 million project coming from airport operator Massport.

JetBlue Airways will takeover United’s gates in terminal C while no decision has been made for its gates in terminal A.
