Delta debuts dazzling Terminal C facility at New York’s LaGuardia Airport
State-of-the-art terminal opens with ten new gates June 4, featuring largest Delta Sky Club in the system
Delta CEO Ed Bastian, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and other New York public officials celebrated the milestone by debuting a gleaming check-in, security and baggage claim facility and a new ten-gate Concourse E at an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday.
Delta accelerated construction timelines during the pandemic to deliver this facility to New York customers even faster than anticipated. The airline will fully complete the entire four-concourse terminal by the end of 2024, almost two years earlier than originally planned.
Ultimately, Terminals C and D will consolidate into one state-of-the-art facility, spanning 1.3 million square feet and featuring 37 gates across four concourses. Delta continues to double down on its vision for the future of travel, building airports of the future that are comfortable, easy to navigate and part of an effortlessly connected journey, capable of absorbing and supporting new innovative experiences as technology evolves. Recently, Delta also revealed the completion of the first major phase of its $2.3B Sky Way at Los Angeles International Airport.
"The transformation of a Whole New LaGuardia airport into a world-class destination that is internationally recognized for its beauty is an integral part of our bold vision for a new era in New York," Governor Hochul said. "The opening of Delta’s $4 billion Terminal C will help provide a superlative passenger experience, easing connections and creating lasting impressions – and it joins the completed Terminal B which we celebrated just a few months ago. Congratulations to all who made today's milestone possible as we finish creating a LaGuardia airport worthy of New York."
Digital art is another prominent design feature; with a massive digital art installation made of 34 lenticular panels, displayed overhead the security checkpoint, while a 238-foot digital backwall in the check-in lobby will feature TSA wait times, wayfinding in both English and Spanish as well as Sky Club volume and gate information
Terminal C also offers a multi-sensory room, providing a calming, supportive environment for customers with sensory sensitivities and their families as they travel.
In support of Delta’s broader sustainability commitments, Terminal C will be LEED® Silver-certified with multiple sustainable elements incorporated throughout including:
- LED lighting
- Exterior glass that automatically tints based on the weather and time of day
- Charging for electric ground support equipment
- An ice-making plant that produces ice during off-hours to cool during the day, reducing power demand during peak periods
Delta is LGA’s largest carrier, offering up to 255 daily flights to nearly 70 destinations this summer. The airline’s unique dual-hub position at LGA and JFK allows it to offer New York customers 465 total peak daily departures to more than 120 domestic and international destinations.
The second major phase of the Delta Sky Way at LGA is just one of several recent infrastructure milestones that Delta has unveiled as part of the airline’s decade-long, $12 billion investment to transform the travel experience on the ground and in the air.
