  • Employment and Economic Impact: There are approximately 9,000 persons employed at LGA. The airport contributes $6.1 billion in wages and salaries and approximately 63,000 jobs generated by on-and off-airport aviation and indirectly related businesses.
  • US Airways Terminal: In September 1992, US Airways$200 million terminal opened for business at the east end of the airport.

In 1995, the Marine Air Terminal was designated a historical landmark. In 1980, the Port Authority rededicated the James Brooks mural, “Flight,” first painted in 1942. In September 1991, Delta began shuttle operations to Boston and Washington, D.C. from the MAT. The terminal is currently undergoing restoration to its façade and interior.
