JetBlue Airways is to move across the runways at New York LaGuardia airport and into the historic Marine Air Terminal as a base for its flights from the airport.
JetBlue will be the main tenant at the Marine Air Terminal, an aviation landmark, occupying four gates once the transition is completed in December – just in time for the start of the busy holiday travel season. This move will alleviate traffic and congestion as construction on the Central Terminal gets underway. JetBlue plans to move back to the Central Terminal when construction is completed.
While honoring the historic design of the Marine Air Terminal, JetBlue will add its own modern touches creating an airport experience in line with the award-winning service its customers receive onboard. With the needs of both business and leisure travelers in mind, including customers traveling on JetBlue’s popular Boston-LaGuardia route
The Art Deco Marine Air Terminal is one of aviation’s most historic landmarks. When it opened in 1940, it housed operations for seaplane service with aircraft departing from the East River. Over the years it has also served as a private jet terminal.
