The new LaGuardia Central Terminal B will feature dual pedestrian bridges spanning active aircraft taxi lanes—a first in the world—that connect the terminal to two island concourses.
This islands and bridges design allows for improved airline circulation and gate flexibility, which will help reduce airport delays.
From the western concourse bridge, a view of Manhattan’s skyline epitomizes how the new terminal design uniquely reflects New York.

The design of LaGuardia Airport’s Central Terminal B will provide a state-of-the-art passenger terminal and modern New York travel experience.
The 35 gate terminal will replace the existing 1964 Central Terminal Building and optimize use of the airport’s limited airside and landside real estate. The design for the new terminal will transform LaGuardia Airport into a single, unified hub with expanded transportation access and best-in-class passenger amenities.
A phased construction approach allows it to be built on the constrained site with minimal impact to existing operations. To optimize airfield performance and efficiencies, the team devised an island-concourse gate configuration. A pair of pedestrian bridges connects the headhouse to the island concourses.
Under a 35-year lease agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP) will design, build, manage and maintain LaGuardia’s Terminal B.
