New York LaGuardia Airport unveiled a new look as part of an $8 billion face-lift blueprint, which includes an addition of 2.7 million square feet to make six new concourses, 72 gates and two new arrival and departure halls completed by 2026.
The airport, close to downtown New York and named after a former mayor, opened in 1939 and is the 20th busiest in the country.
But over the time, it became the worst and was ranked the year’s worst airport in the country, according to a study by the popular frequent-flier website.
“These indignities are things of the past”, says the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.
The American Airline inaugurated the first flight AA4645 to Columbus departed at 05:59 local time on 1 December 2018.
