BOSTON (AP) — Logan International Airport in Boston is changing its international terminal to better accommodate the Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger jet.

Massport recently approved a $30 million upgrade of Terminal E. Officials say the project includes a reconfiguration of three gates to allow for new jet bridges and additional departure level holding rooms and deplaning areas.

Several international carriers that service the airport are using the A380.

Aircraft taxi lanes also will be modified to fit the aircraft, which is about 79 feet high and 262 feet wide. By contrast, the Boeing 747 is about 62 feet high and 210 feet wide.

Massport chief executive Thomas Glynn says one of every five Logan passengers is an overseas traveler and the changes will help the airport keep up with demand.
