A Revamped La Guardia Airport Could Look Like This In 2021



A total makeover for La Guardia Airport has been a painfully long time coming, but facility owner Port Authority has finally leapt into action at the urging of state and local officials. The renderings above and below, published by the New York Post, reveal a swoopy, contemporary Central Terminal Building with a light-filled spacious interior. An important note: the new design leaves room for a direct subway line. (Maybe an N train extension?) Now, these pretty visuals aren't associated with any bidder's plans, but are rather idealized visions to be planted in our brains by Joe Sitt-led advocacy group Global Gateway Alliance. Nevertheless, it's nice to dream, and there are currently three major teams who have responded to Port Authority's official Request for Qualifications, which Crain's calls "a high-powered collection of airport operators, construction companies and financial firms." The authority is expected to pick a winner this spring, who would then undertake the $2.5 billion redevelopment with a projected completion date of 2021.



Even as Port Authority announces a winner, the Wall Street Journal recently reported that the airport's overhaul is "the most complicated construction project in the country" because of the complex financing, design, and construction work ahead. The end result will, everyone hopes, be a 35-gate hub that can handle 17.5 million passengers a year by 2030.

Because JFK needs LaGuardia to stay open in order to run.
JFK handled 406,143 flight operations last year. LGA did 371,565. There's no way JFK can handle 800k flights per year. There are only two airports in the world that can to this: Atlanta (which has 5 independent runways) and Chicago (8 runways).

JFK could build more runways and terminals. The same money being spent on LGA can go to JFK only.

Wouldn't the only workable configuration be to build a new runway on infill In the bay? That seems quite controversial...

Ideally, the PA would simply be planning to combine Newark, LGA, and JFK into one, regional airport, but that's not gonna happen...

New York airports play catch up on free Wi-Fi access

NEW YORK, June 25 (Reuters) - Airports in the New York City area will soon join others in major U.S. cities that offer free wireless Internet access, under a plan approved on Wednesday by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's Board of Commissioners.

Under the proposal, customers at John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia international airports in New York as well as New Jersey's Newark Liberty International will be allowed 30 minutes of free Internet, said port authority head Patrick Foye.

As part of the contract with Internet provider Boingo Wireless, free Internet access would begin as early as this fall. Customers using Wi-Fi beyond the initial free 30 minutes would be charged a fee.

The board's vote comes at a time when most major airports in the United States have already switched from paid to free Internet access for patrons, many of them served by Boingo.

LaGuardia, JFK and Newark are among five major airports in the United States without free Wi-Fi, according to a report by the Global Gateway Alliance, a group that lobbies for New York airport infrastructure improvements. The other two airports are Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Miami International Airport.

The world's 15 busiest airports all offer some free Internet access, the alliance said in a statement.

"Today's action (will) bring us nearer to par with these competitors and take our airports a step closer to excellence," the group said.

The new agreement revises a contract signed in 1999 with Boingo, which required patrons at the airport to pay for all Internet access, the group said.

Boingo will be required to spend $3.8 million to provide software and hardware to expand access, and strengthen signal connections and Internet speeds as part of the deal, Foye said.

"When we poll our customers, free Wi-Fi is the amenity that they most often requested," he said.

Right, because no other airports in the country offer wi-fi.

I've revised this thread to become the New York City Metro Area Airports thread, and I've added the following airports under this umbrella:

- Atlantic City Airport (ACY)
- Long Island-Islip MacArthur Airport (ISP)
- Trenton (NJ) Airport (TTN)

That way, all NYC airports can be discussed under one roof.

Since when did Atlantic City and Trenton become part of Metro NYC?

Well, those two are part of the much larger Northeastern Corridor and the Tri-State Region which consists of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. The Northeastern Corridor is a megalopolis stretching from Washington DC all the way to Boston, and it includes nearby metropolises like Philadelphia and New York City (as its core). The challenge is that whether or not I also include Bradley International Airport (BDL), located in Hartford, Connecticut, which is also part of the New York Metropolitan Area as well...

I thought Trenton and Atlantic City is considered Metro Philly. Trenton is close to both but Atlantic City is a stretch. As matter of fact metro Philly even includes Cecil County, MD. When states are mentioned along with greater metropolitan areas, it is not necessarily the entire state is part of that metro. These states maybe comparatively small, but there is some miles to drive when crossing these smaller states as I experienced while driving last weekend from NH to home which is equa-distance to DC and Baltimore.

All right. So Trenton and Atlantic City are under Metro Philadelphia then? I will do the needed changes then... and by the way, can Bradley International be added here too? Make sure you make that distinction because I can transfer ACY and TTN to Metro Philadelphia (which will then include PHL) in the process.
