In the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon Monday, traveling in and out of the city has become a bit more arduous because of the heightened level of security.

Here are a few updates on how services in Boston are being affected:

- A Massport representative told Boston.com Tuesday that Logan Airport is “open for business as usual.” Security remains heightened.

- Boston Logan Airport tweeted Tuesday that “operations continued unabated” while security inspected US Airways Flight 1716 from Philadelphia. The Associated Press reported that the flight was held after landing so authorities could check out baggage.

- As for the MBTA, the Green Line is running, but the Copley station stop remains closed until further notice and bags of those boarding the T will be searched. A representative from the MBTA said that there are no plans in place yet to reopen the Copley Station and that any update on the situation will be posted on the MBTA’s website as soon as it’s made available.

- Exit 22 off the Massachusetts Turnpike will remain closed to traffic on Tuesday.

- A representative from Amtrak told Boston.com that all trains going in and out of Boston on Tuesday are arriving and departing on schedule.

- JetBlue has a fee waiver in place for customers flying in and out of Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 16-17.

- Other airlines and hotels will also be waiving fees for Boston travelers. For a list of airline and hotel phone numbers to call, read the Pack Up blog.
