More news from Delta Air Lines today on significant investments in terminal facilities to improve the passenger experience. Delta is partnering with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to replace its LaGuardia terminals with a brand new state of the art facility. The project is part of a 50-year lease agreement that Delta is negotiating with PANYNJ.
The new terminal will feature a brand new Sky Club, with Sky Deck, with more spacious concourses, larger gate areas with more seating, and increased concessions. The terminal will include 37 gates across 4 concourses with a centralized check-in area and security checkpoint. According to Delta, the majority of gates will have access to dual taxi lanes, which will greatly improve airfield efficiency, resulting in reduced taxi time to and from the gate before take-off and after landing.
It’s exciting to see Delta commit to such a massive investment at LGA. Like most fliers, I don’t find LGA to be the best air travel experience and the new terminal facilities Delta is investing in will be a remarkable improvement.
