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 LGA, operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
All Station Managers of 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 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 thirty vendor companies conducting business with the airlines which operate 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.
The Laamco annual convention event is the highlight of our social calendar. We also have an annual “Halloween Dinner Dance” at the end of October, a post Labor Day Picnic / BBQ and an Associate Member Networking Luncheon. These social functions foster a strong “family” feeling among members and offer unique communication and support opportunities for all those involved with the Council.
Laamco is a vital part of the LGA community and continues to grow and prosper with the enthusiastic support of the membership, both airline and vendor partners.
