GGA CHAIRMAN PRAISES PORT AUTHORITY & DELTA AGREEMENT; CALLS FOR GREATER PROJECT TRANSPARENCY
(NEW YORK) ― Global Gateway Alliance Chairman Joe Sitt released the following statement today after the Port Authority board approved a deal with Delta to redevelop LaGuardia's Terminals C and D at its monthly board meeting.
"Redeveloping terminals C and D is the final missing piece in the LaGuardia overhaul that will bring the airport as a whole into the 21st century. And with terminal improvements finally underway, the Port should also now consider lifting the perimeter rule to boost competition at our airports.
"However, cost estimates have more than doubled in the last year, so it's time now for partners to bring greater transparency to the overhaul and build confidence in the project by posting clear budgets and timelines to the project website, and updating it regularly so the public can keep track."
