New Delta Facility at LaGuardia
NYSLOF staff attended the groundbreaking ceremony at LaGuardia Airport where Governor Cuomo, along with Delta CEO Ed Bastian, announced the start of construction on Delta’s new facilities.
This came after the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey signed a new, long-term lease with Delta. The groundbreaking marks the beginning of construction on the final component of the entirely new, unified airport at LaGuardia, which will provide all LaGuardia travelers with amenities and expand public transportation, including the planned AirTrain (an elevated railway in New York City that would provide service to LaGuardia Airport).
Delta is investing $3.4 billion to construct the eastern half of the new LaGuardia-the first new airport in the United States in more than 20 years. The western half, as well as the roadways, are already under construction following a groundbreaking in June 2016. The first new gates are scheduled to open next year and the new airport is on track to be fully completed by 2021.
