Delta has unveiled the first of four new concourses at New York’s LaGuardia, part of an $8 billion transformation of the airport.
The new concourse is connected to the existing Terminal D via a temporary walkway, with the security checkpoint at the terminal expanding until a centralized check-in lobby opens in late 2021.
The carrier is gradually replacing Terminals C and D at the airport with a new Terminal C.
The facility – located on the eastern side of the airport – offer seven gates with “more seating and ample outlets for charging device”, as well as food and beverage outlets including Flatiron Tavern and Provisions, Birch Coffee, Juice Press, Rossi Pizzeria, and H&H Bagels.
Design elements include a 3D Delta “supergraphic”, and floor-to-ceiling windows of Flushing Bay and Citi Field baseball park (home to the New York Mets).
The ongoing works will eventually offer four concourses with a total 37 gates, connected by a centralised check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim, and featuring a larger Delta Sky Club and Sky Deck. The new concourse offers digital wayfinding signs with hearing loop technology.
Commenting on the news Delta’s 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 excitement that is building here is palpable and contagious, and we are already looking ahead to many more milestones to come.”
Late last year LaGuardia unveiled a new concourse at Terminal B, used by carriers including American Airlines, Air Canada, Southwest Airlines and United
