American Airlines Begins $1.6Bn Revamp At LA Airport

American Airlines and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have broken ground on a $1.6bn modernisation project for Terminals 4 and 5 of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) – the largest individual investment by American Airlines at an airport in its 92-year history. The project will completely modernise and update the infrastructure of LAX’s two busiest domestic terminals and create open and efficient check-in and security processing areas; establish more gate areas with increased seating and access to modern amenities; and enable the airline to incorporate new technologies.
The designs include a unified departure hall, which will combine the entranceway of Terminals 4 and 5. Movement between the two terminals for connecting passengers is expected to become easier due to the secure-side bridge connecting Terminal 4 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which was completed in 2016.
Workspace of the 7,300 team members at LAX will also be modernised and redesigned by including collaborative and open spaces to meet modern needs; renovated break rooms; multiuse small and large meeting rooms; and team gathering spaces throughout the terminals.
