Delta on Nov. 2 will move the New York operations of its Delta Shuttle from the Marine Air Terminal to Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport, solely for the New York-Boston route.

Delta will upgrade the aircraft to Boeing 717 planes, which is part of a strategy to use bigger aircraft on more routes.

Delta Shuttle flights from New York to Chicago and Washington Reagan will continue to operate from the Marine Air Terminal, flown on Embraer E-175 aircraft by Delta Connection partner Shuttle America.

In 2012, Delta completed renovations to LaGuardia's Terminal C as part of a $160 million project to modernize and connect Terminals C and D.

The carrier also opened its 7,600-square-foot Delta Sky Club, featuring a full wall of windows with runway views. Passengers also have access to five new restaurants, a food hall and fresh markets.

Weekday shuttle flights depart near the top of the hour from 6 a.m. through 8 p.m. The Boeing 717 carries 110 passengers, including 12 in first class and 15 in premium economy.

Complimentary onboard snacks include bagels before 10:30 a.m. or gourmet nut mix after 10:30 a.m. All shuttle fights offer inflight WiFi, and power plugs are available at all seats.

Shuttle passengers on the New York-Boston route can check in at dedicated counters 15 minutes prior to departure without bags or 30 minutes with checked bags.

Dedicated gates near the Sky Club in Terminal C offer complimentary coffee and newspapers.
