LaGuardia Gets an Update
New York’s LaGuardia Airport, often the butt of jokes and derided for its outdated facilities, got a much-needed facelift. Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week unveiled a refurbished Terminal B arrival and departure hall, an 850,000 square foot facility that is part of the airport’s ongoing $8b capital improvement program. United, Air Canada, American and Southwest operate from the terminal. Recall that Delta opened a new LaGuardia concourse in October. Another new departures and arrival hall will open in 2022.
Delta is the airport’s busiest carrier, based on seats scheduled last year (Cirium). American is number two, followed by Southwest, United, JetBlue, and Spirt.
