LaGuardia Airport (LGA) operates domestic flights to the East Coast and central areas of North America with a longstanding maximum flight radius of up to 1,500 miles for LGA flights, excluding Denver (DEN) and Saturday flights.

LGA is the busiest U.S. airport (for passenger numbers) without a direct route to Europe. It’s been criticized for its outdated facilities, but after half a decade of redevelopment, LGA’s new Terminal C and revamped Terminal B offer a more streamlined passenger experience with spacious and modern amenities.

As a domestic hub for Delta Air Lines, the airline was a significant contributor to LGA’s expansion project.

LGA Airport Terminals

LaGuardia Airport has 3 terminals — A, B, and C — that are not linked to each other, so passengers must ride the airport shuttle bus should they need to travel between terminals.

The Grand Central Parkway runs along the south of the airport, so if you’re traveling to LGA by car, you can access your required terminal easily by taking the signposted road system from the parkway.

Each terminal has parking facilities close by and car rental facilities are mostly south of the Grand Central Parkway, accessible by shuttle bus.

Final Thoughts

Having been publicly criticized by passengers and politicians, it’s a welcome relief that LaGuardia has finally had the face-lift it so desperately needed.

June 2022 unveiled the redevelopment of Terminal C, consolidating 37 gates into 1 spacious terminal operated by Delta Air Lines. This, in addition to the revamped Terminal B, has transformed the passenger experience, with modern architecture and state-of-the-art technology.

With its proximity to Manhattan compared to John F. Kennedy International (JFK), LGA is a practical choice for passengers looking to fly domestically.
