A New Airport for New York
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is heralding a new era for LaGuardia Airport; to transform LaGuardia into a world-class transportation hub. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey operates LaGuardia Airport and is leading the modernization and redevelopment of the airport to meet the needs of the 21st century.
The comprehensive redesign of LaGuardia Airport involves transforming LaGuardia into a unified airport with a main terminal, better transportation access with a future air train, more taxiways and best-in-class passenger amenities.
“Our plan will fundamentally transform LaGuardia – replacing what is now an outdated and poorly designed complex with the world-class airport New York has always deserved.” Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
Construction of the new unified terminal – Terminal B – is expected to be a $4 billion project creating 8,000 direct jobs and 10,000 indirect jobs.
LaGuardia Gateway Partners – a consortium company of airport experts – will design, build, manage and maintain LaGuardia’s Terminal B under a 35-year lease agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise(s) (MWBEs) are participating in LaGuardia’s redevelopment. View a list of MWBEs that have joined LaGuardia Gateway Partners in the effort to redevelop LaGuardia Airport.
