Delta to Bring Renowned Chefs Expanded Terminal C at New York LaGuardia

NEW YORK, March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced its renovated and expanded domestic hub in Terminal C at New York*s LaGuardia airport will offer five chef-driven restaurants, an expansive food hall, fresh markets, the integration of Apple iPads, pop-up retail stores and concierge services for frequent fliers on the go.

Building on Delta*s successful dining experience in Terminal D at LaGuardia, the new program at Terminal C brings together culinary talent, with names such as Andrew Zimmern, Andrew Carmellini, Anne Burrell and Aaron Sanchez.

**This innovative and exclusive program is yet another way we are making the travel experience better for our customers in New York. Not only are we expanding flying options, we*re adding fabulous food and beverage choices and services that make the airport experience enjoyable and efficient for our customers,** said Gail Grimmett, Delta*s senior vice president – New York. **With our expansion and improvements at LaGuardia and our ongoing terminal renovation at JFK, Delta continues to position itself as the preferred carrier for customers traveling to and from New York.**

Delta previously announced the largest single expansion by any carrier at LaGuardia in four decades, with total flights increasing by more than 60 percent, and total destinations growing more than 75 percent. By summer 2012, Delta will operate 264 daily flights between LaGuardia and more than 60 cities, more than any other airline.

Delta again has selected OTG Management to lead the enhanced dining experience at Terminal C. Delta*s LaGuardia dining enhancements follow similar upgrades to its concourse and gate areas at Terminals 2 and 3 at John F. Kennedy International Airport and Concourse G at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.

**New York is the dining capital of the world, and we have had the opportunity to team up with some of the best chefs in the city to put together this culinary program,** said Rick Blatstein, CEO, OTG. **With one of the largest chef collaborations under one roof, state-of-the-art design, and innovative retail offerings, flying in and out of Delta LGA will be about a lifestyle.**

Six renowned New York-based chefs will open full-service, exclusive restaurants in Terminal C, and an additional five chefs and two beverage consultants have developed cafes which will appear in the food halls of the airline*s redesigned Terminal C. The dining concepts will open in phases over 18 months with temporary structures with full menus opening as **Taste Of** concepts in late-March 2012.
