Delta Airlines will soon offer Houston passengers service to both LaGuardia Airport and JFK Airport in New York City. 
Delta Airlines is expanding its number of operations at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Houston is seeing additional service as a result.

Delta Airlines is launching non-stop service between George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and LaGuardia Airport, with flights beginning in July 2012.

Delta Airlines will offer passengers a choice between four daily non-stop flights, with departure times ranging from 7:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.

“New York City is obviously a key market for us, from the standpoint of both the leisure traveler as well as the business traveler,” says Genaro Peña, Houston Airport System’s director of air service development. “This announcement gives Houston passengers even more options for one of the premiere destinations anywhere in the world.”

Delta Airlines already provides Houston passengers with key access to New York City from William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), operating a daily flight to John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK).

The four daily flights between Bush Intercontinental Airport and LaGuardia Airport will be in addition to the Hobby Airport operations.

"Our expanded New York schedule is a clear indication that we're making good headway with creative thinking and strategic moves to become the preferred airline for travelers flying to and from New York City," says Richard Anderson, Delta’s chief executive officer.

Once the LaGuardia flight is launched, Delta Airlines will be connecting Houston travelers to eight destinations with non-stop flights.  Those destinations include Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, JFK Airport and Salt Lake City.

The new service to LaGuardia begins on July 11, 2012 and will maintain the following schedule:
