Boston City Council Approves New Logan Liquor License Plan

The Boston Globe reported (and quoted yours truly) on the City Council’s decision to clear the way for vendors at Logan International Airport to be granted special liquor licenses, potentially freeing up 13 sought-after licenses now being used at the airport to be sold to establishments throughout the city.

The Globe reports that currently 40 vendors at the airport, including restaurants and airline clubs, share 13 regular liquor licenses. If the special license rule goes through, each Logan vendor would have to purchase a new airport license — $2,500 for an all-inclusive license, $1,000 for beer and wine only — and the city licenses would be sold to Boston establishments outside the airport.

The proposal will now to the state Legislature and the governor for approval.
