Notable loot

  • The elevator shaft near the entrance has an accessible door on the next floor up, which, if accessed by power armor jetpack, leads to an out-of-bounds zone. This can be exploited to access Clarke directly: landing on the lowest level of rubble next to the green steamer trunk directly behind the elevator shafts will put the player character beyond Clarke's feral observation room, allowing progress in the quest Duty or Dishonor in a fraction of the time, without encountering a single feral ghoul.
  • Accessing the information desk terminal in the baggage claim area will trigger the beginning of the miscellaneous quest Find the Treasures of Jamaica Plain as well as update the map for various other locations around the Commonwealth.
  • If one listens closely, ambient sounds of power-armored Brotherhood soldiers walking around upstairs (after they have moved in) can sometimes be heard.
  • If the console command tmm 1 is used to reveal all locations on the map, the Boston Airport ruins map marker is not revealed.
