As part of ongoing efforts to provide world-class airport facilities to both passengers and airlines, LaGuardia Airport General Manager, Lysa Scully, and members of senior aviation management will speak personally with travelers on Tuesday, July 8 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the airport's Central Terminal Building.
"The Port Authority Ten Year Capital Plan authorized more than $8 billion for the PA airports, including the Central Terminal Building at LaGuardia," said Ms Scully. "This investment is not only for infrastructure and building improvements, but it will also include amenities, retail space and food concessions. Feedback from our customers is important to us and influences our decisions."
The LGA Redevelopment Program – approved by the Port Authority Board of Commissioners in 2012 – is an extensive capital redevelopment program that includes a state-of-the-art Central Terminal Building, an aeronautical ramp, frontage roads serving the new terminal, a central heating and refrigeration plant, and other utilities and site improvements.
