Delta Air Lines has opened a new Delta Sky Club lounge in Terminal C at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, the 54th Sky Club in Delta’s network.
The new lounge, Delta’s third at New York LaGuardia, measures nearly 7,600 square feet and offers a full wall of windows featuring a view of the runway.
Amenities include a full-service bar with complimentary beverages and snacks throughout the day and Delta’s Luxury Bar program featuring premium wines, spirits and cocktails for sale; art featuring aerial landscapes of the region; personalized flight assistance; updated restrooms; satellite television and a work zone complete with complimentary Wi-Fi, cyber counters with power outlets, desktop computers, wireless printers and additional charging stations.
In addition to opening the new club in Terminal C, Delta Air Lines plans soon to begin enlarging and renovating LaGuardia’s Terminal D South Delta Sky Club.
Upon completion next spring, the club will measure more than 10,000 square feet. It will include a full wall of windows to provide more natural light, as well as enlarged and renovated restrooms.
This summer Delta launched the largest expansion at LaGuardia in more than 40 years, increasing service by 60 per cent with 100 new daily flights and 26 new destinations. Delta now operates more than 260 daily flights to 60 cities out of LaGuardia – many more flights than any other airline.
Delta is investing $160 million to modernize and connect Terminals C and D at LaGuardia, with work on a connector bridge between the two terminals expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
Over the last 24 months, Delta has opened or renovated 13 Sky Clubs across the Delta system, at airports serving cities including Atlanta, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York, Philadelphia and Seattle.
Delta has eight Sky Clubs in the New York area, including three at LaGuardia, four at New York JFK and one at Newark. More than 9 million members and their guests visit Delta Sky Clubs each year.
Delta’s Sky Club investments are the latest in the airline’s previously announced plan to invest more than $3 billion in enhanced global products, services and airport facilities through 2013.
In addition to investing in Delta Sky Clubs, Delta has upgraded its domestic fleet with Wi-Fi and Economy Comfort seating on all two-class aircraft. Delta will offer full flat-bed seats on more than 140 widebody aircraft and feature personal, in-seat entertainment for both BusinessElite and Economy class customers.
