No, Logan International Airport isn't going to get 20 percent smaller overnight. But if you are headed to the airport Wednesday, you will find something missing: Terminal D.
In the final phase of the project, sometime next year the existing Terminal E, Logan's international arrivals terminal, will be turned into Terminal D. Logan aviation director Thomas J. Kinton Jr. said passenger surveys found travelers overwhelmingly agreed a four-terminal airport would be simpler to navigate than one with five, and with just three gates, Terminal D functions much more like a satellite of Terminal C than a true terminal in its own right.
Taking the Terminal D designation out of circulation for a year, so Logan customers get used to the idea that AirTran is now in Terminal C, should make the changeover of the international terminal smoother, they hope.
