NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has introduced a plan to redesign and rebuild LaGuardia airport.
The airport in Queens is one of the busiest in the nation, but is cramped and outdated. Vice President Joe Biden last year dubbed it a “Third World country.” He was at the announcement Monday.
Cuomo says the first part of the plan will begin next year and will cost $4 billion. He says Delta Air Lines is a partner in the new terminal. He says approvals that would normally take years were expedited by the vice president’s office.
Cuomo says it will be the first new airport built after the Sept. 11 attacks. The new airport will be constructed closer to the Grand Central Parkway, creating more than double the space.
