The renewal of New York’s LaGuardia Airport got another boost this week when Delta Air Lines Inc. unveiled a $4 billion revamp of its terminal, a milestone travelers questioned would ever come after five years of construction.

The new Delta Terminal C, officially opening to the public on Saturday, is the result of work that consolidated Terminals C and D into a single venue, featuring 37 gates across four concourses. The new terminal, part of a rebirth for the once-infamous airport, will be completed by year end 2024, two years earlier than planned due to accelerated work during the pandemic.
