Terminal C, Delta’s gorgeous new dedicated terminal, is now complete and open for business at LaGuardia Airport.
Delta is celebrating the opening of the new Terminal C at New York’s LaGuardia airport. The terminal now features a brand-new Delta Airlines terminal with ten new gates, 36 full-service check-in counters, 49 self-service kiosks, and the option to bypass the centralised lobby altogether and head straight to one of 11 security checkpoints.
Terminal C also features Delta’s largest Sky Club lounge, with seating for nearly 600 guests, as well as a gourmet kitchen, premium bar, two food buffets and two hydration stations. A year-round Sky Deck and second premium bar are also set to open soon.
The completion of Terminal C is a major milestone for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which announced an $8 billion capital improvement and expansion project for the deteriorating airport in 2015. The transformation of a LaGuardia Airport into a world-class destination that is internationally recognized for its beauty is an integral part of our bold vision for a new era in New York,” said New York Governor Kathy Hochul.
Airlines provided about two-thirds of the cost, with about $3.4 billion contributed by Delta. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey invested $500 million for the completion of Terminal B, specifically for the construction of new roadways and supporting infrastructure.
In 2020, American Airlines opened its new $4 billion arrivals and departures hall at LaGuardia Terminal B, part of a project which will see Terminals C and D consolidated into one facility with 37 gates across four concourses.
The terminal also offer a number of food and beverage and retail options from brands including Bubby’s Diner, Chuko Ramen, Essex Burger, Poppy’s Bagel, Starbucks, Beekman 1802, BuzzFeed News, Le Labo, MAC, Patricia Nash and True to New York.
Delta is the largest carrier at LaGuardia, with up to 255 daily flights to around 70 destinations being served this summer.
In 2021, LaGuardia was the 25th busiest U.S. airport serving 7.8 million passengers. The New York City area, with three major airports, is the most congested airspace in the United States. Airlines are forecasting record travel demand this summer as Americans who delayed trips during COVID-19 return to the skies.
