LaGuardia Airport Announces $15 Flat-Rate Rides From LGA to Manhattan & Brooklyn

Going between LaGuardia Airport and Manhattan is a pain. Granted, it’s easy to get from JFK to Manhattan using public transportation, and the same can be said about Newark International Airport. But LGA has no public transportation that will get you to the city in a simple or timely fashion.

LaGuardia is also in the middle of an $8 billion construction project that has made driving to/from the airport a nightmare. In fact, this past summer, during the height of vacation season, passengers have even been known to leave their cars and walk to the airport in order to get to their planes on time.

Well, LGA construction continues and the holiday season is another time of heavy airport use. To help ease some of the vehicle congestion, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (they’re the government agency that runs the airport) has announced a simple and cheap way to get rides from LGA.

Southwest Ending All Non-Stop Flights Between New York City & Orlando

Southwest Airlines will soon no longer have any non-stop flights between Orlando and New York City.

None at all.

I was as surprised as anyone when I figured out this news. Yep, “figured it out” because there was no official announcement by Southwest – instead you had to put together the pieces from several different moves they’ve made over the past months.

How Bad Is It At LGA? People Are Leaving Their Cars & Walking To The Airport

LaGuardia Airport is a hot mess. It hosted over 30 million travelers in 2018, ranking it the 21st busiest airport in the country. Unfortunately, it also ranked as the 14th worst airport in the world, and those 30 million people in 2018 were met with an old and outdated airport that really couldn’t handle the load of people. Terminal A was built in 1939, Terminal B in 1964, Terminal D in 1983 and Terminal C (yes, in that order) in 1992. And that was the last time any sort of major upgrade or expansion was done.
