Los Angeles International Airport prepares for terminal reorganisation

LAX is beginning preparations for a large terminal move on the night of May 12th.

From May 12th-17th, Delta Air Lines will be moving its operations at LAX to Terminals 2 and 3 from Terminals 5 and 6.

As a result, 19 other carriers will also relocate.

Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic and WestJet, which are partnered with Delta, will remain in Terminals 2 and 3.

The move is designed to give Delta room to grow, adding seven extra gates and giving the carrier easier access to the airport’s international terminal and to Delta’s partners.

Air Canada, Virgin America, XL Airways France and Boutique Air will move to Terminal 6 while Hawaiian, JetBlue, Spirit, Allegiant, Frontier and Sun Country will relocate to Terminal 5.

The other carriers will fly out of the Bradley International Terminal.
