LaGuardia Airport

Airport in Queens

Used mainly for domestic flights, LaGuardia is smaller than JFK International Airport but only 8 miles from Midtown Manhattan. It sees about 29 million passengers per year and has been open for commercial use since 1939. American Airlines and Delta have their own terminals here.

An $8-billion plan to completely overhaul the airport, including the construction of a unified terminal and better public-transportation links, is due for completion in 2022.
