Last month, Delta Air Lines broke ground on its latest terminal, located at the new LaGuardia Airport (LGA). The $4 billion terminal facility will be paid for in part by Delta, contributing $3.4 billion of the cost.
“We know the new LaGuardia is one that New Yorkers will be proud to call their hometown airport. And we are confident that this investment will further cement Delta as the No. 1 airline in New York, with the best customer service and experience on the ground as well as in the air,” said Ed Bastian, CEO, Delta Air Lines.
The new LaGuardia is the first new domestic airport since Denver International Airport opened in the mid-1990s, and the Delta terminal facility is planned for the eastern end. It will offer 37 gates, each capable of handling any of the airline’s aircraft. Gates are connected over four concourses by a central check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim. Of the 37, 33 have access to dual taxi lanes, reducing taxi time.
Additionally, a new luxury Delta lounge with an outdoor deck is planned. Overall, the terminal is designed with lots of open, airy spaces and glass walls, and many retail and dining options (30 percent more than the current Terminals C and D). Additionally, designs take increased security and traffic into consideration, and offer direct access to public transit.
The new LaGuardia opens in 2020, with the Delta Terminal commencing operations in 2021. Currently, Delta operates a major hub at LGA, with 275 daily departures in three terminals.
