Delta Airlines is boosting its flights out of LaGuardia.
The airline is adding routes that target business travelers as well as Delta's competitors, American Airlines and United.
"For the first time really in the history of aviation at LaGuardia Airport, we're going to build a hub. That means we're going to be connecting passengers and growing the number of seats and destinations in a very significant way," said Richard Anderson, CEO of Delta Airlines.
In the largest expansion at LaGuardia in 40 years, the airline is adding flights to Miami, Dallas, Houston, Denver and Charlotte.
The airline will also spend $100 million to expand LaGuardia's C and D terminals, which will be connected by a 600-foot bridge.
