American Airlines Welcomes Guests at New York’s LaGuardia Airport With Reimagined Terminal B
American Airlines announced today a new reimagined Arrivals and Departures Hall at New York’s LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal B. Beginning June 13, 2020, the new space will offer a clean, comfortable and efficient experience for travelers.
Today, American Airlines announced that guests will enjoy a new experience at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) with a reimagined Arrivals and Departures Hall in Terminal B. The elegant new space offers travelers a clean, comfortable and seamless experience and provides an upgraded workspace for the carrier’s team members. Starting this Saturday (June 13, 2020), the new Terminal B facility will serve as American’s main arrival and departure space at LGA, including ticketing, check-in, security screening and baggage claim. The newly reimagined facility is modern and bright and includes expanding dining and shopping concessions as well as direct connections to all concourses. In Wednesday’s announcement, American’s Vice President of Northeast Hubs and Gateways, Jim Moses said,
“As more customers take to the skies, American is ready to welcome them to New York in this reimagined facility, launched by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and developed in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and LaGuardia Gateway Partners. By centralizing our operation, we can better care for our customers – delivering an intuitive, seamless experience from curb to gate.
The new Terminal B Arrivals and Departures Hall was developed by LaGuardia Gateway Partners and is just the latest milestone in American Airlines’ modernization project. Travelers can connect from the terminal via pedestrian bridge to gates 40-59 in the new eastern concourse which opened in December 2018.
American Airlines would like to remind guests that many flights will continue to operate from the B, C and D gates in the original Central Terminal Building. Customers can access these gates via a temporary walkway after checking in at the new Arrivals and Departures Hall. As air travel demand is beginning to improve, American plans on operating 55 percent of their domestic schedule (compared to last year) in July 2020, including 95 percent more flights at LGA than in May.
