This weekend United customers traveling through
New York-LaGuardia Airport will experience new gates on the
Terminal B Eastern Concourse, following the first phase of the $4
billion, 1.3-million-square-foot redevelopment project of Terminal
B, operated by LaGuardia Gateway Partners.
With soaring ceilings up to 55-feet high
and plenty of natural light, customers will have thirteen new
shops, restaurants and services in the concourse to visit; all
inspired by the best of New York – from the iconic Shake Shack and
local Irving Farm Coffee Roasters to an outpost of New York's
famous toy store, FAO Schwarz.
"United customers depend on LaGuardia for
frequent service to key business cities such as Chicago and Denver
and the new Terminal B represents a huge improvement in the
facilities we are able to provide, including a gorgeous new United Club," said Jill Kaplan, United's President of New York and New
Jersey. "A world-class city like New York deserves a
state-of-the-art airport – which is why we are absolutely thrilled
to be moving our operations to the spectacular new Terminal B
Eastern Concourse at LaGuardia Airport."
The new concourse features ample gate seating,
with charging stations throughout the seating area along with free
unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi, offered by the Port Authority of New
York and New Jersey.
Additional features include a "park area"
complete with greenery and benches, an airport themed children's
play area which contains a 16-foot interactive display and
restrooms with spacious stalls and above sink shelves that will
keep belongings dry while washing hands.
"The move of United
and its passengers into the first new concourse at Terminal B
marks another key milestone of the $8 billion redevelopment of an
entirely new LaGuardia Airport," said Rick Cotton, Executive
Director of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. "This is
another important step in our ongoing commitment to provide world
class facilities that turn Governor Cuomo's vision for a 21st
century LaGuardia into reality. And we are undertaking this
comprehensive rebuilding of LaGuardia Airport while continuing
full operation at LaGuardia and serving record numbers of
As part of the
terminal redevelopment, United will open its newest United Club on
2 June. Located after security near United's gates,
the new club offers 10,500 square feet of space with
sweeping views of the tarmac. The Club is 30 percent larger than
the prior LGA United Club location, and
features more than 200 seats.
Customers will be able to enjoy an expanded food
menu including distinctly New York selections such as the iconic
New York Bagel provider, Ess-a-Bagel, which will be paired with
assorted cream cheese, jams and smokehouse salmon spread, a Greek
salad bar and rotating hot foods including oven-baked Neapolitan
ziti, fast-fired pesto and goat cheese flatbread, bite sized reuben corned beef with sauerkraut and more. Menu options will
rotate throughout the day with hot and cold entrees available
all-day. Additional amenities include complimentary high-speed
Wi-Fi, wellness rooms and phone booths.
