LaGuardia Airport’s new Terminal B Arrivals and Departures Hall opened to the public on Saturday, serving American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Air Canada. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey called the opening “the biggest milestone to date in the airport’s ongoing $8-billion transformation into a unified 21st century facility.”
Measuring 850,000 square feet over four stories, the terminal presents greater opportunities to move passengers more safely and efficiently with improved distancing during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Port Authority. It includes local concessions; large, modern restrooms; and a New York-inspired shopping district.
The opening of the new arrivals and departures hall follows the openings of the new Terminal B parking garage in February 2018, the first new gates and concourse in Terminal B in December 2018, and the first new gates and concourse in Terminal C in October 2019.
