dbo:abstract
  • The Marine Air Terminal (also known as Terminal A) is an airport terminal located at LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York City. The Marine Air Terminal, an Art Deco building opened in 1939 by William Delano of the firm Delano & Aldrich, is the only active airport terminal dating from the first generation of passenger air travel in the United States. Terminal A was the airport's original terminal for overseas flights, and it had originally been built to handle seaplanes, namely Pan American Airways' fleet of flying boats, or Clippers. After World War II, technological advances made the Clippers obsolete, and the Marine Air Terminal was converted for the newer airplanes and was used mostly for non-scheduled airlines. When Clippers stopped serving the terminal in 1952, it was closed to passenger traffic and fell into disrepair. In 1966, it was renovated and reopened as a terminal for corporate jets. In 1986, Pan Am restarted flights at the terminal. The terminal consists of a central circular core of two stories with an attic, from which a rectangular entrance pavilion and two symmetrically opposed one-story wings project. The terminal has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1982. (en)
