New York City Airports Getting An Upgrade

Summer Travelers Facing Delays and Cancellations at Newark AirportNewark Liberty International (EWR), LaGuardia (LGA), and John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) are getting an upgrade.

The airports serving the NYC area have been rated some of the worst in the nation in recent years but by 2030 they are expected to be overhauled into state-of-the-art facilities. With a $36 billion dollar budget and a 2030 completion date, all three airports are expected to see multiple upgrades.

A new terminal has already been unveiled at LaGuardia and has been hailed as the best new terminal in the world.

Terminal B at LaGuardia took the global architecture & design award and is the first terminal in the world to achieve LEED v4 Gold Certification by the US Green Building Council.

At John F Kennedy airport a renovation project to Terminal A which was delayed due to COVID-19 is set to begin this year and continue through 2030. It will be the largest terminal at the airport and host 23 gates, a new check area, dining halls, retail areas, and an indoor green area.

Newark International is currently working on an upgrade to Terminal A and is expected to see a partial opening of its planned 23 gates this year. It will also see its AirTrain transportation system replaced with a modern railway.
