About LaGuardia

 

Conveniently located eight miles from midtown Manhattan in the borough of Queens, New York, LaGuardia Airport serves millions of people each year.

Since 1947, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has operated LaGuardia under a lease with New York City. The airport sits on 680 acres, has two 7,000 ft main runways and four terminal buildings that house up to 72 aircraft gates.

In 2015, LaGuardia handled 28.4 million passengers. The airport also employs 11,000 people and generates more than $15.6 billion to the economy.

History

Opened in 1939, LaGuardia Airport was built on the site of the old Gala Amusement Park at a cost of $40 million.

Once called the Overseas Terminal, and then the Marine Air Terminal, Terminal A was the original airport terminal building, serving international flights throughout the 1940s. In 1995, the terminal was designated a historic landmark.

Terminal B, also know as the Central Terminal Building, opened in 1964 followed by Terminals C and D in 1983 and 1992.

Today, LaGuardia Airport handles millions of passengers, millions of tons of cargo and is an important economic engine for the New York-New Jersey region.
