Media Kit and Fact Sheet: Delta's LaGuardia Investment


  • Delta has spent the past decade investing more than $12 billion in airport hubs across the country, cementing our commitment to modernize and transform the travel experience. These facilities aren’t just beautiful and new – they're also expertly designed for optimal efficiency and speed, allowing travelers to navigate quickly, easily, and intuitively.
