The July 4th weekend celebrations were tempered by the lessons learned from Covid-19 compliance challenges we experienced during the Memorial Day weekend activities. This holiday weekend seemed to usher in a new dynamic for beaches, parks, bars, outdoor clubs, restaurants and travel with mixed messages from community leaders. Airlines began to focus on adding more flights both domestically and internationally; some started filling all seats on planes.
The holiday uptick in the passenger activity at Newark (EWR) airport, a key international travel hub in the New York region, was partially the result of some international flights being allowed to depart for the first time in month. Some flights required the aid of foreign consulate officials verifying Covid-19 test results, nurses taking temperatures and special transit entry authorization for certain countries before passengers are allowed to complete check in.
As travel continues to evolve during the remainder of this summer season, please remember to seek the latest information from the CDC and to refer to the various travel advisories from local and international organizations such as AAA, the airlines, municipal websites, Consulate or Embassy websites and the State Department. Continue to follow guidelines like wearing a face mask in public places, practicing proper hygiene by washing hands frequently and using sanitizer and keeping six feet apart when communicating or waiting in line for various services. Enjoy the remainder of the summer; it’s never too early to plan a safe and fun-filled Labor Day weekend for you and your friends & family. If you choose to travel by train or by air, let us help you with greeter service & travel aids! Happy Safe Summer Fun!

Air General Traveler, the ground concierge Meet & Greet program we started six years ago, has launched its newest location – at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, Terminal B. The terminal currently serves Air Canada, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines and offers four lounges. The airport – including Terminal B – is undergoing a multi billion dollar redevelopment project. The new Terminal B, managed by LaGuardia Gateway Partners on behalf of The Port Authority of NY & NJ, is opening in phases with the main new departure terminal to open by May 2020; it will offer more retail, food and beverage and amenities. Travelers will walk above the aircraft using dual pedestrian bridges which connect the main part of the terminal to two island concourses. The bridges offer views of the Manhattan skyline.
LaGuardia Airport began as a publicity stunt in 1934. Then New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia refused to deplane from a TWA flight from Pittsburgh to Newark, declaring that his ticket showed his destination as New York. The press conference that followed, along with reporters onboard the plane, confirmed the time had come for a new, modern facility closer to Manhattan. In 1939 the airport opened as the New York Municipal Airport – LaGuardia Field, and in 1953 the name was officially shortened to LaGuardia Airport. The redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport involves transforming the airport into a unified airport with new terminals, an improved roadway system, new parking infrastructure and more. It is one of the most significant airport redevelopment projects in the United States in more than 20 years. In 2015, more than 28 million passengers used LaGuardia Airport, making it the premier business airport in the business capital of the U.S., the busiest airport in the country without non-stop service to Europe. LaGuardia Airport is a short drive into Manhattan and an easy commute to Long Island.
