Massport was created by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1956. The governor of Massachusetts appoints the agency's board members.

Year-over-year fiscal year 2011 operating revenue rose about 2% thanks mainly to parking, concession, ground services, and other revenue from 2.1 million more passengers at Logan. Massport attributes the increase in passengers to four new airlines using Logan and growth in established airlines, among other factors. In all Logan provided services for more than 28 million passengers in in fiscal year 2011. Logan aircraft operations, mainly take-offs and landings, rose about 4% in 2011 as a result of more flights by low-cost airlines.

In 2010 Massport transferred ownership of the Tobin Memorial Bridge, which connects the Charlestown section of Boston with Chelsea across the Mystic River, to the new Massachusetts Department of Transportation. The deal was part of the commonwealth's overhaul of its transportation governance. The authority lost more than $15 million from the transfer. Massport had owned the Tobin Bridge for 50 years. – less
