LaGuardia Airport Parking (LGA)
LaGuardia Airport is the third busiest airport serving New York City behind JFK and EWR airport. It is the twentieth busiest airport in the United States, serving millions of travelers each year, who use LGA parking.
The airport code is LGA. LaGuardia is situated almost 10 miles from East Manhattan, in East Elmhurst, Queens. You can reach the airport by taking the I-278 E for example. The airport adopted its current name in 1953.
LGA airport doesn’t have international flights aside from some Canadian or Caribbean flights. Still, with only domestic flights, it serves 41 destinations (with some international exception) and almost 171 flights per day.
The airport itself accommodates a great number of passengers with LGA parking facilities. However, the parking lots fill up quickly during peak travel days. To avoid overfilled lots and high parking rates, read below to find out more about parking options.
There are three terminals (A, C, C) with their own parking lot. There used to be a terminal D, which got partly demolished, closed and remaining gates got connected to terminal C with a new runway as well as a new councourse F, which is currently being built.
Terminal A Parking and Terminal B Parking will cost you $5 for every 30 minutes and at Terminal C $6. The 24-hour maximum for all three lots is $55-70. There is also a Prepaid Economy parking option at Terminal A for 29$ a day.
