Delta Air Lines has unveiled a new 105,000ft2 concourse at LaGuardia Airport. The new concourse is in what will become Delta’s Terminal C, marking a major milestone in the US$8bn transformation of the airport.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian said, “Two years ago, we set out to build a state-of-the-art facility at LaGuardia Airport, an airport that our customers and the people of New York deserve. Thanks to the commitment and hard work of the Delta team and our many partners, today marks the beginning of a new era for millions of Delta customers at LaGuardia.”
The opening of the new concourse is the latest milestone in the complete rebuild of LaGuardia, which will provide a world-class passenger experience featuring modern customer amenities, state-of-the-art architecture, more spacious gate areas, and a connected terminal system.
The new concourse features dining from hospitality group OTG inspired by local brands. Furthermore, the new gate areas provide more seating and ample outlets for charging devices, and respite spaces for passengers to rest.
When complete, the new terminal will feature 37 gates across four concourses connected by a centralized and streamlined check-in lobby, security checkpoint, and baggage claim; dual taxiways that will help reduce hold-outs and taxi times; a new, larger Delta Sky Club with a Sky Deck; larger gate areas and more concessions space; and more efficient airport roadways.
