Delta Air Lines Inc. plans a massive flight expansion out of New York’s LaGuardia airport, hoping to improve its competitive edge against its two biggest rivals in one of the nation’s most important air travel markets.

Delta said Friday that the additions make it the biggest airline between the New York area and other cities in the U.S., as it adds routes that target American Airlines and put it in a better position to compete against United Continental. That should help it grab more high-paying business travelers, a critical passenger segment in major cities like New York.
