Left Shadow About LAX Development

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is in the midst of a multi-billion dollar development program for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Sustainability is a key feature of the development program and all projects incorporate sustainable design features that promote energy efficiency while mitigating adverse environmental impacts.
The centerpiece of the development program is the New Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) which includes new retail, dining, and gate areas at LAX's premier international terminal. The new terminal opened to the public in September 2013. Other recently completed projects include the complete renovation of Terminal 6 and major airfield improvements designed to accommodate the new large aircraft that many airlines are now flying into LAX.
Additionally, there are other major projects in planning or under construction that are in support of the development program. These include a new Central Utility Plant, new taxiways and taxilanes, and major renovations and infrastructure upgrades in all of the other terminals. For detailed information about the various projects, please see the Project Fact Sheets and Program Status Reports sections on this website.
