6 airlines moving for the reconstruction of LaGuardia

LaGuardia airport has long been a favorite air-port residents of the Big Apple. This weekend they will have another reason to grumble, because, in connection with the restoration, six airlines will replace the usual terminals.

The main change will be that JetBlue will move from Terminal b to terminal a, which is also known as the historic Marine Air Terminal, decorated in the art Deco style. This terminal is the best part of LaGuardia. William Delano built a round building in 1940, and, according to the national Park Service, it remains the only active terminal operating since when the first generation of passengers started to travel by plane for the United States.

  • Frontier Airlinescurrently operating in Terminal B, will hold its flights in Terminal C, and the arrival is in Terminal D.
  • Spirit Airlines, located in Terminal B, will hold its flights in Terminal C, and the arrival is in Terminal D.
