LGA Airport - La Guardia Airport ( Flushing , NY )


LaGuardia Airport Overview

LGA serves the city of New York and is one of the five airports operated by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. While LaGuardia Airport has long been considered one of the worst U.S. Airports, serious steps have now been taken to remedy this.  Check out recent news to learn more.

A perimeter rule prohibits incoming and outgoing flights exceeding 1,500 miles, so most transcontinental and international flights use either JFK (Kennedy) or EWR (Newark Liberty) airports. LGA Airport is only eight miles from midtown Manhattan, accessible directly from Grand Central Parkway. Located in the Borough of Queens, City of New York, it  borders on the areas of Astoria, Jackson Heights & East Elmhurst.
