Reserved Parking Arrives at LGA

Air travelers have a new option for parking at LaGuardia: a reservation for a space can be made in advance, online with Premium Parking Reservations.

Reserved parking is available in designated spaces in the LGA P2 Daily Parking Garage and in Lot 4. Both are conveniently adjacent to Terminals B, C and D. The reservation costs $5 per visit, per space and must be made online. All parking charges will apply when you’re ready to leave the lot. Learn more here.

Premium Parking Reservations are also available at Newark Liberty where designated spaces are located in P4 Daily Parking and in the Terminal C Short Term Parking Garage. Both lots are conveniently adjacent to AirTrain Newark, which is free for on-airport travel to all terminals. Parking fees will be collected when you leave the lot.

Reserved parking is expected to be available at Kennedy International in the fall.

JFK Terminal 4 Expansion Progresses

At Kennedy International, the $1.2 billion Delta Air Lines expansion of Terminal 4 – which will replace Delta’s international operation in the 50-year-old Terminal 3 – is on schedule.

The new facilities will include nine new international gates, for a total of 16 the airline will occupy, a new automated baggage handling system as well as one of the largest Sky Clubs in the Delta system. The expansion will increase JFK’s capacity and improve the customer experience for the 11 million passengers Delta carries to and from JFK annually.

Expansion of Terminal 4 is the latest project designed to meet future passenger needs at JFK, which handled more than 46 million fliers last year. When the project is completed in 2013, all international terminals at JFK will have been renovated.
