In June 2022, Delta Air Lines will complete the construction of its new, state-of-the-art home at LaGuardia Airport, where a $4 billion terminal will replace the existing Terminals C and D.
The new Delta terminal is vastly more spacious than the ones being replaced. The first space they opened in 2019, Concourse G, features floor to ceiling windows with extraordinary views of Flushing Bay and Citi Field. The new arrivals and departures hall continues that spectacular architectural vision – enormous glass windows, light-filled passenger areas, and elegant inspirational vision.
The soaring spaces of Terminal C set the stage for an inspiring array of artworks from a wonderfully diverse group of highly respected artists, commissioned by Delta in partnership with the Queens Museum. Inspiring public art works have become a hallmark of the Port Authority’s transformative airport redevelopment projects at all of the Port Authority’s airports.
Throughout the new Terminal C, cutting edge technology, unmatched security features and an exciting selection of concessions featuring iconic New York brands are a demonstration of our relentless focus on providing a truly best-in-class passenger experience.
The terminal will consist of 37 flexibly sized gates that can accommodate Delta’s full fleet, distributed among four concourses connected by a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim. Dual taxi lanes between the concourses will greatly improve airfield efficiency, resulting in reduced taxi time to and from the gate before take-off and after landing.
The facility will offer larger gate areas and more seating, as well as 30 percent more concessions space than its existing facilities. A new Delta Sky Club will feature a Sky Deck with airfield views, locally inspired food options, artwork from emerging New York artists, and other unique amenities.
The terminal will include improved roadways and drop-off/pick-up areas, as well as a curbside check-in bypass leading directly to the security checkpoint. The overall terminal design integrates sustainable technologies and improvements in energy efficiency.
Throughout the $8 billion LaGuardia redevelopment project, the Port Authority alongside Delta has championed an intensive outreach to Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises, resulting in a record $2 billion worth of MWBE contracts, the largest participation by such firms in any public-private partnership in New York’s history. Delta’s program alone has awarded more than three billion dollars in contracts to date, more than 35% of which have gone to Minority and Women owned businesses.
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.
The Port Authority of NY & NJ selected LaGuardia Gateway Partners to modernize and redevelop Terminal B, including updating it with environmentally friendly parking options. LGP broke ground on construction of the new $4.2 billion Terminal B in June 2016.
