Flights to Boston

Packed with history, Boston's a city that’s proud of its heritage

Book flights to Boston and start a New England adventure. The narrow streets and red-brick houses of Beacon Hill give a real sense of the city’s past. And Boston has plenty of history – after all, this is where it all began for American democracy.

The dramatic changes in the seasons means there’s always a reason to catch a flight to Boston. The city provides glorious summer days lazing on the beach along with winter sport action. Don’t miss the fall either – Boston looks magnificent when the leaves start changing colour.

Shop 'til you drop

Try lobster in Maine

Lobster is New England’s essential dining experience. It’s delicious and messy, especially when it’s slathered in melted butter. Well worth the embarrassment of wearing a bib.
