New York, NY–
Delta continues to roll the red carpet out for its customers with new aircraft, Sky Clubs and new terminal additions, which included a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 1st for Terminal C at La Guardia Airport in New York City.
Delta and The Port Authority of NY & NJ (PANYNJ) jointly invested $4 billion to consolidate Terminals C and D into a brand-new, state-of-the-art terminal facility, spanning 1.3 million square feet and feature 37 gates across four concourses. Another improvement is the Delta Sky Club, which will increase to 34,000 square and can handle up to 600 guests. The terminal will feature local food fare from New York restaurants, multi-sensory room, specialty retail stores, and many world-class art exhibits in partnership with the Queens Museum.
Delta customers will experience the efficiency of a quick check-in, hands free bag drop, security, and easy access to the 37 gates in Terminal C. The new headhouse has dedicated floors for each process of travel. Lower level for Arrivals and baggage carousels, middle level for ticketing and bag drop, and the upper level is the security checkpoint. Concourse E will open with the new headhouse on Saturday June 4th, 2022, and will consist of ten new gates that will have the ability to accommodate Delta’s domestic fleet from regional jets up to Boeing 737-900’s/Airbus A321’s. Delta has invested $7 billion in the NYC airports since 2010 and certainly earns the designation as New York’s No. 1 airline.
During the revamp process nationally, Delta has listened to its travelers and continues to make its Sky Clubs bigger and better, especially in Terminal C. Last month we featured the opening the of the club at LAX, which like this one at LGA, will allow for travelers to arrive relaxed. This Sky Club again will encompass 34,000 square feet and be able to handle up to 600 guests. The Sky Deck will be completed once the Terminal D headhouse is demolished. The club will feature a gourmet kitchen, premium bar, two food buffets and three beverage bars. If you are searching for artwork and architecture, look no further than the Sky Club. It will feature curated artwork and architecture touches that reflect on New York City’s dominance in the international art scene.
As of Saturday June 4, 2022, the original Terminal C and D headhouses will officially close and passengers will use the new headhouse. You will no longer need to take a bus shuttle from one concourse to the next and boarding plane side will become a thing of the past. Just past security, there will be a multi-sensory room that provides a calm, supportive environment for customers with sensory sensitivities and their families as they travel. Delta has partnered with the Queens Museum to showcase custom pieces from six local artists that share a compelling story of New York’s immigrant history and diversity. A fun tidbit, every restroom in the new terminal features a tiled mural at the entrance of New York City locations. If you are looking for food, head to Concourse E to enjoy local New York City fare from Bubby’s Diner, Sunday Supper, or Essex Burger, Chuko Ramen to name a few. Terminal C will be LEED Silver Certified and include LED lighting, Exterior Glass that automatically tints based on the weather and time of day, as well as charging for electric ground equipment.
Delta is La Guardia’s largest carrier offering 255 flights to nearly 70 destinations and if you happen to be on one of those flights, please check out all the great features Terminal C has to offer. Customers will continue to see enhancements to their experiences across the Delta network in the future.
