American Airlines welcomes customers to the new Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport this week. The new state-of-the-art Arrivals and Departures halls will boast a more comforting experience for customers and upgraded workspace for AA New York team members.
Starting Saturday, June 13th the new Terminal B will be American’s main arrival and departure facility with direct connections to all concourses.
“As more customers take to the skies, American is ready to welcome them to New York in this re-imagined facility, launched by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and developed in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and LaGuardia Gateway Partners,” said Jim Moses, Vice President of Northeast Hubs and Gateways for American Airlines. “By centralizing our operation, we can better care for our customers — delivering an intuitive, seamless experience from curb to gate.”
“The opening of the first new Arrivals and Departures Hall is a major milestone in delivering on Governor Cuomo’s vision for a brand new, world-class, 21st century LaGuardia Airport that the region deserves,” said Rick Cotton, Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “We thank the contractors, subcontractors and union construction workers who worked thorough the pandemic to deliver this extraordinary building on time and on budget. Today’s opening should be a shining symbol of the region’s potential for a strong economic recovery with the vitality of New York before COVID-19.”
“As one of the first tenants in LaGuardia Airport’s history, we’re excited to continue to work with American Airlines as we progress into this new, modern era for LaGuardia’s Terminal B,” said Stewart Steeves, Chief Executive Officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners. “We look forward to providing an exceptional guest experience for all of American’s NYC passengers.”
