Explore the New LaGuardia Airport
The new unified airport's sustainable design will feature open spaces, leading technology, top-notch concessions, retail and amenities. Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport will be a 1.3 million square foot, 35-gate terminal and will feature dual pedestrian bridges that span active aircraft taxi lanes -a first in the world- which will connect the main part of the terminal to two island concourses. Delta Air Lines’ new terminal C at LaGuardia Airport will consist of 37 gates located on four concourses connected by a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint, and baggage claim.
Terminal B Parking Garage
The Terminal B Parking Garage is located west of the LaGuardia Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT). The garage has seven levels, totaling 1,143,540 sq. ft. of parking area, with 3,129 parking spaces. The garage footprint (300 feet wide, 545 feet long) covers almost 4 acres and its foundation is composed of approximately 1,000 18” steel taper tube piles. The garage has 3 entry lanes and 7 exit lanes.
A notable feature is a unique aluminum fin façade system. This exterior metal screen will clad the garage façade on three sides. Each metal panel consists of a continuous frame with varying profiled fins. This is identical to the new Terminal C Parking Garage and East End Substation facades, part of an overall campus-wide unifying architectural theme for the airport. The façade also functions as a measure to block vehicle headlight glare to the local community to the south. Glass enclosed elevators inside the complex provide a higher level of visibility and wayfinding. The new garage contains ten electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and preferred parking spaces for low emissions and hybrid vehicles. In addition, the design includes provision for 600 future EV stations and 156 ADA parking spaces.
Departing passengers can easily access Terminal B departures via an enclosed pedestrian walkway on level 2.
Car Services (FHV’s) are also available on level 2 of the garage.
LaGuardia Gateway Partners' new 35 gate, 1.3M square foot Terminal B will completely redefine the guest experience. Terminal B will offer best-in-class retail, food, beverage, and amenities that will more than double the current number of offerings. Dual pedestrian bridges will span active aircraft taxi lanes – a first in the world – and connect the main part of the terminal to two island concourses. Passengers will walk above aircraft as they make their way to their gate, all while enjoying views of the iconic Manhattan skyline. In addition, this island and bridge design will increase the taxi-way space for aircraft. Terminal B will truly celebrate the best of New York – and serve as a gateway we can all be proud of.
The Central Hall will be designed to unify the airport connecting the New Terminals B and C.
LaGuardia Gateway Partners debuted the first part of the new Terminal B on December 1, 2018 with the opening of the first 11 gates in the new eastern concourse. Eastern Concourse is 243,000 sq. feet and includes 18 gates. It features soaring ceilings up to 55’ high and plenty of natural light. Inspired by NYC’s own parks, the concourse features a park area that includes greenery and benches, ample gate seating, with charging stations throughout the seating area., thoughtfully designed restrooms.

Delta Air Line's new terminal at LGA will consist of 37 flexible-gauge gates, each capable of accommodating aircraft ranging from regional jets to Delta Air Line's full fleet of narrowbodies. Four concourses will be connected by a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim. Of the 37 gates, 33 will have access to dual taxi lanes, which will improve airfield efficiency by reducing departure and arrival taxi times. The terminal will offer wider concourses, larger gate holdrooms and more seating, as well as 30 percent more concessions space than the existing Terminals C and D. It will also house a new Delta Sky Club that will feature a Sky Deck with airfield views, wellness products and services, locally inspired menu items, modern furnishings, artwork from emerging New York artists, and other unique amenities.
