New York City’s LaGuardia Airport opened its second skybridge to passengers on Jan. 28, marking the final milestone of the nearly six-year renovation of Terminal B. The old airport was notorious for its poor condition; former Gov. Andrew Cuomo called it “outdated, overcrowded and unworthy of the Empire State.”
Renovations in other parts of the airport are ongoing, and Terminal C is expected to be completed in spring 2022. Questions around how to improve connectivity to the airport also remain, according to the New York Times, after New York Gov. Kathy Hochul nixed Cuomo’s plans to build a LaGuardia AirTrain in October. Port Authority and LaGuardia officials are trying to figure out how to best transport passengers, and are studying other transit links like an extension of the N train from the Astoria neighborhood.
