The new Terminal B at New York LaGuardia airport opens today and the airport has undergone a transformation unlike anything I have ever seen. Will LGA suddenly go from being New York’s worst airport to its #1 airport? I’d call it a stunning transformation.
Stunning Pictures of New York LaGuardia Airport
Over the years I have flown so many times into LaGuardia. I have happy memories and not so happy memories…like that time my future wife had to fly Frankfurt to Chicago to LaGuardia instead of Frankfurt to Newark because I forgot to do her ESTA and the system was down when she tried to check-in…
On a more positive note, it was the airport I landed in after crossing over the million mile threshold with United.
But today Terminal B officially opens. The new terminal, part of LGA’s complete rebuild which started in 2016, includes floor-to-ceiling windows with natural light, permanent art displays, and many new restaurants. The project, at a cost of $5.1BN, represents the largest public-private paartersnhip in U.S. aviation history.
Take a look at these pictures:
