Davey Official Image The Massachusetts Port Authority Board unanimously elected MassDOT Transportation Secretary and Chief Executive Officer Richard Davey to head the seven-member board which oversees Massport, a financially independent authority which owns and operates Boston Logan International Airport, the public container and cruise terminals in the Port of Boston, Hanscom Field, Worcester Regional Airport as well as real estate holdings and public parks in South Boston and East Boston.

Members of the Board are chosen by the Governor. The Transportation Secretary, by statute, is an ex officio member. The other members serve staggered seven year terms. The board members are not paid for their service to Massport. Davey joined the Board in September and will replace Ranch Kimball, who is leaving the Board. Kimball served for more than seven years and had been named Chairman in September.

“Customers expect and deserve a seamless experience within our state transportation system, whether they are driving our roads, riding the rails, or flying in and out of our airports or taking delivery of cargo at our maritime facilities,” Davey said. “I look forward to continuing to work with our partners at Massport to ensure the safety and service of our customers and maximizing Massport’s unique ability to be an economic engine in the Commonwealth.”

Boston Logan offers nonstop service to 71 domestic and 29 international destinations and in 2010 handled 27.4 million passengers. Boston Logan is the Air Line Pilot Association’s Airport of the Year for 2008 because of its commitment to safety. Over the past decade, the airport spent $4.5 billion on a modernization program that includes new terminals, parking facilities, roadways and airport concessions, and has been transformed into a world-class 21st Century facility.  The airport generates $7 billion in total economic impact each year.
