Delta Air Lines has broken ground on a $160 million project to renovate and expand its facilities at New York LaGuardia airport.

As part of the project, a 630 ft connector bridge will be built to link Terminals C and D and the airline will add expanded security lanes in the two terminals.

The SkyTeam carrier is creating a new domestic hub at the airport, and will launch flights to 26 new cities by 11 July. Delta is also investing $1.2 billion in expanding its facilities at the city's John F. Kennedy airport by adding nine additional gates to Terminal 4.

When Delta's full flight schedule is implemented, it will operate more than 260 daily flights between LaGuardia and more than 60 destinations. The carrier expanded its operations at the airport after concluding a slot swop with US Airways involving slots in New York and Washington DC.
