Delta’s Striking New Plans for LaGuardia

After helping fund Atlanta’s new baggage handling system, and announcing a major overhaul of LAX’s Terminals 2 and 3, Delta has revealed plans to renovate its operations at LaGuardia, building a new 37-gate terminal featuring four concourses linked by a central check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim area. The upgrade cannot happen too soon for travelers using the airport. (In October, The Guide to Sleeping in Airports’ annual survey named LaGuardia the worst airport in North America.) The new terminal will include a new and bigger Sky Club with a Sky Deck, Delta said, along with wider concourses, bigger gate areas with more seating, and 30 percent more concessions space than the existing Terminals C and D. The facility will also offer direct access between the parking garage and terminal, improved roadways and drop-off/pick-up areas, and a curbside check-in bypass leading directly into the security checkpoint. The plans for a new Delta terminal at LGA are just part of a larger multi-year redevelopment of the entire airport that will cost $4 billion and will bring passenger terminals together into a large, modernistic structure that will be hundreds of feet closer to the Grand Central Parkway than the airport’s existing facilities. The project will also create new transportation links to Manhattan via an AirTrain system and passenger ferries, as well as a new hotel/conference center. To read more at Travel Skills, click here.
