CHICAGO, May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend United customers traveling through New York-LaGuardia Airport will experience new gates on the Terminal B Eastern Concourse, following the first phase of the $4 billion, 1.3-million-square-foot redevelopment project of Terminal B, operated by LaGuardia Gateway Partners. With soaring ceilings up to 55-feet high and plenty of natural light, customers will have thirteen new shops, restaurants and services in the concourse to visit; all inspired by the best of New York from the iconic Shake Shack and local Irving Farm Coffee Roasters to an outpost of New York's famous toy store, FAO Schwarz.

"United customers depend on LaGuardia for frequent service to key business cities such as Chicago and Denver and the new Terminal B represents a huge improvement in the facilities we are able to provide, including a gorgeous new United Club," said Jill Kaplan, United's President of New York and New Jersey. "A world-class city like New York deserves a state-of-the-art airport which is why we are absolutely thrilled to be moving our operations to the spectacular new Terminal B Eastern Concourse at LaGuardia Airport."

"The move of United and its passengers into the first new concourse at Terminal B marks another key milestone of the $8 billion redevelopment of an entirely new LaGuardia Airport," said Rick Cotton, Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. "This is another important step in our ongoing commitment to provide world class facilities that turn Governor Cuomo's vision for a 21st century LaGuardia into reality. And we are undertaking this comprehensive rebuilding of LaGuardia Airport while continuing full operation at LaGuardia and serving record numbers of passengers."

The new concourse features ample gate seating, with charging stations throughout the seating area along with free unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi, offered by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Additional features include a "park area" complete with greenery and benches, an airport themed children's play area which contains a 16-foot interactive display and restrooms with spacious stalls and above sink shelves that will keep belongings dry while washing hands.

As part of the terminal redevelopment, United will open its newest United Club on June 2. Conveniently located after security near United's gates, the new club offers a private oasis of 10,500 square feet with sweeping views of the tarmac. The Club, which is 30 percent larger than the prior LGA United Club location, combines the sleek styles of New York City with the modern touches travelers desire and features more than 200 seats. Customers can enjoy an expanded food menu including distinctly New York selections such as the iconic New York Bagel provider, Ess-a-Bagel, which will be paired with assorted cream cheese, jams and smokehouse salmon spread, a Greek salad bar and rotating hot foods including oven-baked Neapolitan ziti, fast-fired pesto and goat cheese flatbread, bite sized reuben corned beef with sauerkraut and more. Menu options will rotate throughout the day with hot and cold entrees available all-day. Additional amenities include complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, wellness rooms and phone booths.

The airline offers 17 daily flights between LaGuardia Airport and Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, more than any other airline at LGA. Additionally, United offers the only service from LaGuardia Airport to Washington-Dulles Airport (IAD) and the Northern Virginia business corridor.

New UA Concourse / United Club at Laguardia (opened 2 June 2019)

I remember reading somewhere that United will be using the new concourse at LGA starting in April. Does anyone know any updates on that? Thanks.

This email from UA (March 15, 2019):

"We're excited to move into the new Terminal B at LaGuardia later this year. This is a world‑class state-of-the-art facility with fabulous local dining and shopping options such as District Market, Kingside, Shake Shack and FAO Schwarz. Our United Club℠ location will also now be located after security to help you comfortably settle in before your flight."

Probably not this month.

As early as June, according to Chicago Business Journal.

I've taken an AC flight out of the new terminal B, and the new terminal is phenomenal. The new United Club should be really nice, with open ceiling and glass walls looking at the terminal.

One or two fewer reason to loathe flying to LGA.

Upgraded food options

Will be out of town - who is saying goodbye to the old club one last time.

Looks impressive in the photos! I will be there in the coming weeks. Looking forward to use the new terminal. I have been avoiding LGA the last two years and moved over to EWR for my DC-NY commune. If the construction situation is resolved, I will move back to LGA.

interesting to read the quote:
A world-class city like New York deserves a state-of-the-art airport..
......I guess DC metro is not world class enough!

Reading the press release, it says they will operate from 5 gates - is that really the case? If I'm not mistaken, they use 6 primarily right now (7,9,10,11,12,14) and sometimes C8 for RON's/early departure... not sure how that's going to work during peak departure periods/delays (aka a normal day at LGA) when all gates are already occupied in the current setup?

I noticed CLE is missing from list of destinations served from LGA. Sign of things to come?
