New airport routes make Boston all the more desirable to international students

See also

Great news for international students! In 2014 Logan airport continues widening its reach, putting Boston on the global travel map. New routes connecting Boston to Tokyo (April 2012) and Panama city (July 2013) will be followed by direct flights to Dubai (March 2014), Istanbul (May 2014) and Beijing (June 2014).

This initiative will of course boost tourism and business and is equally bound to stimulate the well-developed higher education industry of New England's capital, attracting more international students who will be able to enjoy direct flights to Boston and back home.

Beyond colleges and universities, exchange programs and language schools will also benefit from this expansion. Companies such as Cambridge based EF (Education First) now have the possibility to provide their services to a broader clientele as this development makes it easier for students to study in Boston.

On the downside, cost might still be an issue. Flights to Dubai with Emirates amount to almost double of what people would pay for tickets with one stopover in NY.

Some would still like to see direct flights between Boston and Berlin, a route that makes sense to many as Berlin hosts a copious student population, but this is not on the cards yet.
