The biggest problem at Logan Airport this week isn’t canceled flights or icy runways or surly TSA agents. It’s the parking.
Finding a place to stow your car is often tough at Logan, as anyone who has prowled the crowded central parking garage long enough to almost miss a flight knows well. But it’s even more trying during school vacation week, when hordes of families leave their cars at the airport on their way to warmer climes, and the airport’s usual stream of business travelers keeps on coming.
This week, as many as 18,000 cars will need to be parked at Logan each day, a roughly 13 percent jump above normal. The 16,200 spaces at that airport, however, remain unchanged.
