Delta’s first new concourse recently opened at New York’s LaGuardia airport which houses gates 92-96. Delta Shuttle flights to Boston, Washington D.C., and Chicago O’Hare will now depart from the new concourse.
Earlier this year, LaGuardia unveiled a new concourse in Terminal B which house Southwest Airlines and Air Canada, so now it’s Delta’s turn to get some new gates in the newest concourse part of the $8 billion transformation currently going on.
Until the terminal’s centralized check-in lobby in the new headhouse opens (scheduled for early 2022), the new concourse will be accessible via a pedestrian walkway on the east side of Delta’s existing Terminal D. The security checkpoint in Terminal D is being expanded to support both concourses. Customers arriving into the new gates with checked bags will claim their bags in Terminal D baggage claim.
The new concourse, a major milestone in Delta’s $4 billion redevelopment investment at LGA, opened on Oct. 29, to rave reviews and participation by Delta CEO Ed Bastian, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, and representatives of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
