Completion of Delta’s $4B Terminal C Marks Substantial Completion of LaGuardia Airport’s $8B Redevelopment
On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, the opening of Delta Air Lines’ new 1.3 million-square-foot Terminal C was announced. Completion of the $4 billion project that consolidated Terminal C and Terminal D marks substantial completion of the $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport that began six years ago. As the nation’s first major new airport in more than 25-years, LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal C and new Terminal B, which opened in January 2022, offers travelers a world-class facility. The airport will also celebrate the cultural diversity of Queens and New York through inspiring public art curated by the Queens Museum. Private financing and existing passenger fees funded two-thirds of LaGuardia’s transformation, the construction of which generated a “record-setting $2 billion in contracts awarded to Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE), and $800 million to date in contracts awarded to Queens-based local business enterprises.
