While LaGuardia Airport has long been considered as one of the worst U.S. Airports, it may be noted that serious steps have now been taken to remedy this situation - see 'Future Airport Developments' below.
LGA Airport is only eight miles from midtown Manhattan, accessible directly from Grand Central Parkway (the extension of I-278). Located in the Borough of Queens, City of New York, it borders on the areas of Astoria, Jackson Heights & East Elmhurst.
With 29.8M passengers in 2016, LaGuardia Airport is served by many airlines offering nonstop daily flights to numerous destinations in the U.S. and Canada, as well as by seasonal flights to Aruba, the Bahamas and Bermuda (as these destinations offer US Border preclearance on return flights).
- JetBlue now offers six daily weekday flights to Boston BOS, with two Saturday and three on Sunday roundtrips. Envoy Air will reopen its LaGuardia base in early 2017.
La Guardia Airport has four passenger terminals: TA through TD. (For detailed terminal information open 'Terminal Map' and scroll down to the text; for Parking information open 'Parking Map'; for transportation open 'Transportation: Buses /Trains'.

- As the Airport is under construction it is highly recommended that passengers arrive at the Airport two hours prior to scheduled flight departure - allowing time for check-in, getting boarding pass, and going through security check (including screening of carry-on bags).
- The Port Authority is taking measures to alleviate recent traffic problems by adding a new lane in front of the airport. It also considers a direct right turn at 94th Street and eliminating the loop installed early August. PA created a coordination center monitoring traffic flow.
- New pick-up location for Uber and other 'For Fire' drivers are no longer in front of the terminal - insted a shuttle bus will take passeners to a centralized spot - thereby reducing airport traffic.
Future Airport developments: New Airport operator 'LaGuardia Gateway Partners' will finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the Airport's Terminal B facility. The US$4B project is to unify the terminal structure by demolishing the existing Terminal B and replacing it with a larger structure (with more natural light and two pedestrian bridges to cut down on gate delays), and a new Central Hall - later to be joined with Delta's terminals C & D (to be redeveloped and linked to new arrivals & departures halls) - resulting in the elimination of current gate delays and airplane congestion.
- Work started June 2016 and is tentatively to be completed by second half of 2018. (Note that passenger parking will now require shuttle buses, as parking facilities are being moved further away).
- A new Delta terminal with 4 concourses and 37 gates (33 with access to dual taxi lanes), is to replace current terminals C & D. The new Delta terminal is to house a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint, and baggage claim. After regulatory approvals and final lease negotiations, construction will start at the earliest time. The terminal is to house a larger Delta Sky Club lounge with a Sky Deck, wider concourses, larger gate holdrooms, more seating and concessions space and will offer direct access to parking garage, have improved roadways, drop-off/pick-up areas, and a curbside check-in bypass connecting directly to security checkpoint.
- Reconstruction work of the former TWA Flight Center - turning it into a 505-room hotel - is ongoing.
- Once the entire project is completed by 2022, the unified terminal is to be 600 feet closer to Grand Central Pkwy, have 240 percent more space for runways & flight operations, and offer three times a many security gates and pedestrian bridges to gates.
