Delta launches LaGuardia project

Surging airport redevelopment across the US has been joined by another major project with Delta Air Lines breaking ground on a $4bn 37-gate facility at New York LaGuardia.

It is the carrier’s largest airport investment in its history and forms part of a programme that was launched last June to transform LaGuardia into a completely rebuilt 21st-century asset.

Other features of the transformation include a new roadway configuration and the creation of new LaGuardia Gateway Partners passenger terminal concourses on the western side of the new airport.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo said at last week’s ceremony: “Together with our private-sector partners, we are making rapid progress to create the world-class gateway to the Empire State that New Yorkers deserve.”

Delta’s new state-of-the-art terminal will feature four concourses with flexibly sized gates that can accommodate the airline’s full fleet; a new, larger Delta Sky Club with a Sky Deck, and new waiting lounges with more seating.

CEO Ed Bastian said Delta’s new facility was building on the $2 billion-plus the airline has already invested in New York airports over the past seven years and underscored its commitment to LaGuardia and to the city it served.
