12/17/2010 LaGuardia Airport is under new management. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey named 24-year employee Tom Bosco, formerly deputy general manager, as general manager of the 71-year-old airport.
Bosco has worked at all three of the area’s major airports. He has a long career in aviation, and served in the U.S. Army, where he flew helicopters. The 1980 graduate of West Point served in Operation Desert Storm and, as a Lt. Colonel, led his National Guard battalion in providing security at Ground Zero after Sept. 11.
Bosco said his priority is “the safety, security and efficiency of the airport,” which he said will serve a total of 23 million passengers in 2010, employs 7,000 people and creates $7 billion in local economic activity.
