Delta broke ground Wednesday on an expansion of its new domestic hub at LaGuardia Airport.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg was on hand to help usher in the construction project, the largest at the airport in more than 40 years.
The expanded terminal will increase service at LaGuardia by 60 percent, adding 100 new flights and 26 new destinations by this summer.
Delta will operate more than 260 daily flights between the airport and more than 60 cities.
The airline is also investing $160 million to modernize Terminals C and D at LaGuardia and build a connector between them.
The project is expected to create 700 permanent jobs.
