Delta Air Lines will move its New York-to-Boston shuttle operation from LaGuardia’s Marine Air Terminal to the airport’s renovated Terminal C beginning 2 November, the carrier announces.
In addition to the move, Delta says it will also begin operating the route with 110-seat Boeing 717s.
Currently, Delta’s regional partner Shuttle America operates the LaGuardia-Boston route under the Delta Shuttle brand using 76-seat Embraer E175s.
Delta says Shuttle America will continue to operate its two other Delta Shuttle routes — LaGuardia to Ronald Reagan Washington National airport and LaGuardia to Chicago-O’Hare — using E175s.
The transition is part of Delta’s effort to operate larger aircraft on more routes, and follows renovations completed in 2012 to LaGuardia’s Terminal C, a project in which Delta invested $160 million, the airline says.
