Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Governor Cuomo’s LaGuardia Redesign and Plans to Improve Other Regional Airports

The mention of an important new hotel and retail center being developed at JFK, in the former TWA Saarinen Terminal building adjoining Jet Blue’s Terminal 5, suggests the even bigger challenge ahead, which involves expanding the capacity and accessibility of the city’s premiere international airport. “
