Delta Air Lines is putting the finishing touches on the first of four new concourses it is building at New York LaGuardia, including new local food options ahead of a fall opening.

The Atlanta-based carrier has begun installing jet bridges and fitting out the interior of what will become the six-gate concourse G of its $3.9 billion terminal C/D rebuild at LaGuardia.

“The historic infrastructure project underway at LaGuardia is a significant component of the more than $12 billion Delta is currently investing in airport redevelopment efforts around the country,” says Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a statement today.

The new facility at LaGuardia will completely replace the airline’s 1980s and 1990s-era terminals C and D when work is complete in 2026. The terminal will feature expanded spaces, including security checkpoints and waiting areas, with modernized amenities and floor-to-ceiling glass curtain walls with views of the ramp and Flushing Bay.

Delta’s new concourse is the second to open under the $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia launched by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2015. Private concessionaire LaGuardia Gateway Partners opened the 17-gate terminal B eastern concourse in December, which houses Air Canada, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines.

United moved into the new facility, including a new United Club, earlier in June.

Delta has extended its partnership with airport hospitality group OTG to the new concourse G space. Food options will include local or locally-infused outlets Rossi Pizzeria, Flatiron Tavern & Provisions, Birch Coffee, H&H Bagels and Juice Press.

“The dining options we’re introducing… reflect the best of what’s available in our city, offering Delta’s LaGuardia customers the flavors we love and appreciate as New Yorkers,” says Rick Blatstein, CEO of OTG, in a statement.

The firm has outfitted concessions in Delta’s existing terminals at LaGuardia and at New York JFK, as well as United Airlines’ terminal C at Newark Liberty.

When concourse G opens at LaGuardia this fall, it will be connected to the existing terminal D via a temporary walkway. The new centralized terminal building is scheduled to open in 2021.
