The LaGuardia Airport Airline Management Council, better known as LAAMCO, has been in existence for over thirty years. The main purpose of LAAMCO is to enable the airlines that operate at LGA to work together on common concerns and speak with a unified voice on issues that impact the commercial aviation industry as they relate to the conduct of business at LaGuardia which is operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
All station managers of the airlines operating at LGA are members of LAAMCO and meet on the first Wednesday of every month to address issues of mutual concern. Representatives of the PANYNJ and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), are included during the first half of these meetings. The second half of the meeting is limited to airline members only.
LAAMCO membership also includes over 50 vendor companies conducting business with the airlines at LGA. They are Associate Members of LAAMCO and are able by appointment, to address the airline station managers at the monthly meetings and promote their company’s products or services.
In addition to the business aspect of LAAMCO, there are a number of social events planned throughout the year. Among these, is the annual LAAMCO Convention, usually held in late spring, a three or four day event held at a world-class resort. LAAMCO has had recent conventions at The Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver, Canada and the Hilton Nordica, Reykjavik. This event is the highlight of our social calendar.
We also have an annual “Fall Happy Hour event” at the end of October. These social functions foster a strong “family” feeling among members and offer unique communication and support opportunities for all those involved.
LAAMCO is a vital part of the LaGuardia Airport community and continues to grow and prosper with the enthusiastic support of the membership, both airline and vendor partners.
