Delta Air Lines recently unveiled the single largest expansion by any carrier at LaGuardia in decades. Through this new hub, Delta’s expanded domestic schedule will now offer travelers 60 percent more flights to 75 percent more destinations. By summer 2012, Delta will operate 264 daily flights between LaGuardia and more than 60 cities around the country—more than any other airline. The new flights will provide Delta’s customers with more choices and options when flying to New York’s preferred airport for business travelers.
For New Yorkers, and those that travel to the area, that means Delta will now offer more than 400 daily departures from LaGuardia, JFK and Newark to destinations nationwide. That means more seats on more domestic flights to and from New York than any other carrier.
As part of the expansion, Delta will invest $100 million to create an expanded main terminal at LaGuardia across Terminals C and D. A 600-ft. connector bridge will be built to conveniently link the two terminals and their combined 26 gates. Delta also will convert the existing US Airways lounge in Terminal C to a Delta Sky Club®, while continuing to operate its current Delta Sky Club® in Terminal D.
The additional LaGuardia flights are available under an approved agreement between Delta and US Airways to exchange takeoff and landing rights at LaGuardia and Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.
The larger jet aircraft utilized by Delta means up to 4 million additional seats annually will be available at LaGuardia without increasing congestion.
Flights will be available for sale for travel beginning March 25 and July 11, depending on the market served.
