Delta Expands at LaGuardia and Invests in the Customer Experience

Delta Launches the Final Phase of Their Expansion at the New York-LaGuardia Airport
In July Delta added 11 new destinations from the hub in addition to a dozen new routes launched in March, completing the largest route expansion at the New York City gateway in more than 40 years. Since March, Delta has increased service at LaGuardia by more than 60 percent, with 100 new flights and 26 new destinations.

Delta Offers Improved Productivity and Convenience for New York Travelers
Travelers arriving at LaGuardia enjoy the airport’s easy access to Manhattan. They can also connect at the conveniently positioned hub to dozens of business destinations. At LaGuardia, Delta operates a combination of narrow body and regional jets, the latter of which offer the convenience of First Class Cabins on most routes.

Facility Improvements at LGA Enhance the Customer Experience
In addition to new flights at LaGuardia, Delta is investing more than $160 million to modernize LaGuardia, with work expected to be completed by the end of 2012. The project includes a 630-foot connector bridge linking Terminals C and D, a new Delta Sky Club in Terminal C and expanded security lanes in both terminals. The connector bridge will allow Delta customers to walk between terminals behind security, providing easy access to departure and arrival gates and facilitating convenient connections.

$1.2 Billion in Improvements at JFK Complements LaGuardia Expansion
Besides modernizing facilities at LaGuardia, Delta also is part of a $1.2 billion expansion project at their JFK hub to add nine additional gates to Terminal 4. That terminal, which will become Delta’s international gateway at New York, will include a state-of-the-art baggage handling system, additional Customs and security lanes and one of the largest Delta Sky Clubs in the airline’s system. Customers can use their global hub at JFK to reach nearly 50 international destinations on five continents.
