"Flying to NYC" LaGuardia Tip by grkboiler

LaGuardia, New York City: 41 reviews and 25 photos

Flying to New York is not cheap, but there are 3 airports you can use - Laguardia, Kennedy, and Newark. I have used all 3 at one time or another.

The one closest to Manhattan is Laguardia. It is small and outdated. Security can be a hassle with long lines and unfriendly security guards. Most domestic flights will come through here. ATA usually has the cheapest flights to Laguardia.

Kennedy is a good half hour from Manhattan. If you are on an international flight, it is a safe bet you will be using Kennedy. It is a crowded airport and probably far away from where you want to stay, but easier to use than Laguardia in my opinion. It is also most expensive to fly here.

Newark is a 3rd option some people don't consider. For domestic flights, if you want to save some cash, try flying into Newark. Continental and ATA should have the cheapest flights. You can get a cab or bus to NYC from here.

Directions: Queens. Can use M60, Q33 busses.
Mode: TO
Type: Airplane
