New York LaGuardia International Airport Improvement (Update)

New York

(This post was originally published on January 21, 2015 and updated on January 24 and July 28, 2015.)

New York LaGuardia International Airport (LGA) is one of three serving the Greater New York area. The other two are Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and New York JFK International Airport (JFK).  In 2013, these three airports served over 112 million passengers combined (which would put New York in the top three by passengers).

Individually, as noted in our 2013 airport review (refer to link), JFK is ranked No.19 in 2013. EWR is in the 40th spot and LGA is just outside the top 50 busiest by passengers.

Of these three airports, only LGA does not have a direct connection to commuter/regional train or subway systems. This is about to change.
