LAX's mighty move

Billed in US style as "as one of the largest projects of its kind in the history of commercial aviation", Delta Air Lines is relocating from Terminals 5 and 6 to Terminals 2 and 3 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) next month.

The move, orchestrated in partnership with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and scheduled to start on 12 May, will involve 21 airlines during a one-week period and is a precursor to the Delta Sky Way project.

This is Delta’s $1.9bn plan to modernise, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX over the next seven years, representing the second-largest infrastructure investment in California.

Delta will have 23 gates at the airport immediately following the move and will operate alongside many of its airline partners, including Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic and WestJet. 

Later, a secure connection to the Tom Bradley terminal will enable seamless access to additional partners, including Air France-KLM, Alitalia, China Eastern, China Southern, Korean Air and Virgin Australia. 

Delta says the new space will provide all the amenities its passengers have come to expect at LAX, including a private Delta One check-in lounge, new state-of-the-art Delta Sky Clubs, and an integrated in-line baggage system.
