Delta Air Lines is opening a new concourse at LaGuardia Airport as part of a revamp of the aging airport.

For Atlanta-based Delta, New York is a major market where the airline has a domestic hub at LaGuardia and an international hub at John F. Kennedy International Airport. New York is also a frequent destination for Atlanta travelers.

The airline in 2017 began construction of a new $4 billion terminal at LaGuardia to replace Terminals C and D.

Delta held a ribbon-cutting Tuesday with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other officials for the first new concourse -- a 105,000-square-foot facility with seven gates.

The concourse will open up to customers on Monday. It has views of Flushing Bay, Citi Field and the US Open venue USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Eateries in the new gate complex include H&H bagels, Rossi Pizzeria, Flatiron Tavern & Provisions, Birch Coffee and Juice Press.

Construction continues on the rest of Delta’s new terminal, which will ultimately have four concourses, 37 gates with larger gate areas, more concessions space and a single centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint and baggage claim. It will also have a new, larger Sky Club with a Sky Deck.

Delta’s new terminal under construction is part of a broader $8 billion transformation of LaGuardia.
