The news has recently been dominated by stories about travelers spending hours in line for security checks and airports are ready to put money into changing this narrative. Three major U.S. cities are in the process updating their airports so that they are more comfortable for travelers.
New York's LaGuardia Airport, which in 2015 serviced 14.3 million people, is one of the airport that is getting a major update:
That’s why the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, has been working on plans to give LaGuardia an estimated $4.7 billion facelift. LaGuardia Gateway Partners will handle the renovations, and if all goes as planned, the existing infrastructure in the Central Terminal Building (also known as Terminal B), will be demolished to make way for a 1.3 million square foot, 35-gate terminal building. The new terminal will also feature an aeronautical ramp, new roads in and out of the terminal, and a new parking garage.
