On Thursday, Delta Air Lines announced that beginning Saturday, November 16, 2019, all Delta Shuttle flights would be operating out of gates in the airline’s new Terminal C.
Starting today, Delta Shuttle passengers will get a first look at the airline’s new Terminal C concourse, where flights to Boston, Chicago and Washington DC will operate. Housing gates 92-98, the new concourse offers floor-to-ceiling views of Citi Field and Flushing Bay as well as dining choices from some on New York’s favorite chefs and restaurants. The new concourse opened on October 29th and is part of Delta’s $4B redevelopment at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Since the terminal’s centralized check-in lobby won’t be ready until early 2022, passengers can access the new concourse by a pedestrian walkway located on the east side of Delta’s existing Terminal D. In the meantime, passenger security screening and baggage claim will be handled in Terminal D. In Thursday’s announcement, Delta’s VP – LGA Operations, Ginny Elliott said,
“Our Shuttle customers are among the very first to experience Delta’s newest facility at LaGuardia, and we’re excited for them to enjoy all of the amenities it has to offer. Its modern design, spacious gate areas, and delicious dining offerings are sure to elevate the travel day for some of our most frequent fliers.”
Delta’s “Peach Corps” volunteers will be available to help guide passengers to the new facilities and Shuttle customers will continue to enjoy the benefits they have come to expect such as Check-in up to 15 minutes before departure (with no bags) or 30 minutes with checked bags. Other Delta Shuttle perks allow passengers to board up to 5 minutes prior to departure, regular gates, expedited security options with CLEAR and TSA Pre-Check and complimentary onboard snacks and beverage.
During the week, flights to Washington DC will be operated by Delta Connection partner Republic Airlines with Embraer E-170 and 175s, which will depart at the top of the hour starting at 6AM, 10 times daily in November. Chicago flights will be operated by Delta mainline on Boeing 717s, with 13 November peak-day departures starting 6:10AM. Flights to Boston will be operated 17 times daily in November starting at 6AM and will be operated by both Delta Mainline and Republic Airlines. Delta mainline will operate a combination of B717s and Airbus A220s on the route, while Republic will utilize E-170/175s.
