The Excitement is Building
Led by LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the LaGuardia Terminal B project – valued at $5.1B (including $4B in construction value) is the largest public-private partnership in US aviation history. The redevelopment includes a new 35-gate terminal, a Central Hall, a parking garage, related roadways and supporting infrastructure – all with innovative construction phasing, including building over-top of the current operation, to allow the terminal to remain fully functional while under construction.
When complete, the Terminal B guest experience will be completely redefined. The new Terminal will offer best-in-class retail, food, beverage, and amenities that will more than double the current number of offerings. Dual pedestrian bridges will span active aircraft taxi lanes – a first in the world – and connect the main part of the terminal to two island concourses. Passengers will walk above aircraft as they make their way to their gate, all while enjoying views of the iconic Manhattan skyline. In addition, this island and bridge design will increase the taxi-way space for aircraft. Terminal B will truly celebrate the best of New York – and serve as a gateway we can all be proud of.

The New LaGuardia Airport
The comprehensive redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport represents one of the most significant airport redevelopment projects in the United States in more than 20 years. LaGuardia Airport is being transformed into a unified airport with new terminals, better transportation access, additional airside taxiways and best-in-class passenger amenities.
Delta Air Lines will develop, construct, operate and maintain a new terminal to replace Terminals C and D. Delta Air Lines broke ground on construction of the new $4 billion terminal in August 2017.
