Delta at LaGuardia Airport.


This fall, Delta Air Lines will open the first of four new concourses planned for New York’s LaGuardia Airport, which is gradually replacing Terminal C and D at the airport with a new facility.

The new concourse will connect to Terminal D via a temporary walkway, until the new centralized check-in lobby opens in late 2021.

The new 105,000-square-foot concourse will have floor-to-ceiling windows and gates for a range of plane sizes. Food and beverage options will include New York-based Birch Coffee, H&H Bagels and Juice Press, Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant Rossi Pizzeria, and contemporary chops, burgers and fish eatery Flatiron Tavern and Provisions.

Every seat will feature a power outlet with USB ports, plus tablets “allowing customers to track their flight, browse the web, play games, and order food, drinks and amenities.”

The modern concourse will be powered by a new substation integrated into the upper level, “to protect such systems from water damage in the event of a major storm.”

There’s also an ice generation system that creates ice at night to cool the building during the day, reducing electrical consumption at peak times.

The airport’s new terminal will have 37 gates and four concourses, all linked by a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint, baggage claim area and a new, larger Delta Sky Club with a Sky Deck.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
