Second Phase of Renovations at LAX Announced

Delta Air Lines and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have formally kicked off the Delta Sky Way at LAX project — Delta’s $1.86 billion plan to modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3, and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B). Construction is expected to begin this fall. The project kick-off follows the LAWA Board of Airport Commissioners’ recent approval of the largest tenant improvement award in its history, which cleared the way for the Delta Sky Way at LAX to begin.

When completed, the modern facility will offer more security screening capacity with automated security lanes, more gate-area seating, and a world-class concession program in partnership with Westfield Corporation, in addition to all the amenities that Delta’s customers have come to expect at LAX, including the Delta ONE at LAX check-in space, new Delta Sky Club; and the integrated in-line baggage system. Other key features and benefits include:

  • A 27-gate complex on Terminals 2 and 3 with a secure connection to Terminal B, enabling Delta and its partners to effectively utilize gates there as well.
  • Brand new headhouse with centralized lobby, security screening checkpoint, and baggage claim
  • Completely reconstructed Terminal 3
  • A convenient bridge connecting Terminals 2, 3, and B on the secure side of the airport, as well as a dedicated baggage recheck and security checkpoint for seamless connection of international to domestic transfers, enabling significantly faster connections
  • Premium retail and dining lineup
  • Convenient and contemporary restroom facilities
  • More access to power in the gate areas
  • Modern and intuitive signage
  • State-of-the-art finishes
  • Emergency power generators for better operational recovery
  • Connection to the automated people mover , which is expected to be fully operational in 2023
  • Airfield efficiency including dual taxi lanes

Customers Encouraged to Check the Fly Delta App, Arrive Early

To prepare for the start of construction this fall, Delta has undertaken a series of enabling projects, including many that are already complete. Later this summer, security screening operations in Terminal 3 will be consolidated to the checkpoint on the lower level of Terminal 3 while construction begins on the mezzanine level. Customers should continue to access the security screening checkpoint from the ticketing level, where airport employees will direct them to their respective screening lanes, including TSA Pre-Check, CLEAR, and SkyPriority.
