LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is among the nation’s leading domestic gateways as well as the primary business/short-haul airport for New York. The airport handled more than 28 million passengers in 2015 and employs approximately 12,000 people, contributing about $17.7 billion in annual economic activity to the New York-New Jersey metropolitan region. LGA holds the distinction of being the most efficient airport in the world, handling more passengers per acre per year than any other airport.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is embarking on a major modernization and redevelopment program to position the airport to meet the needs of the 21st century. Gain an inside look at one of North America’s largest and most significant public-private partnerships and associated redevelopment efforts to unify and modernize the airport. You’ll visit construction sites and learn about the project from a variety of stakeholders, including management staff from LGA, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, private project partners, and airlines.
