LAX Terminal 1.5


The project proposes the construction of a new building located between Terminals 1 and 2. The new facility will ease congestion and provide connectivity between the two terminals – both within the ticketing and check in portion as well as post-security screening. LAX Terminal 1.5’s post-security airside pedestrian connection means passengers connecting between the two terminals will no longer have to leave the secure area of the concourse, exit the building, and go through security again to make a connection. LAX Terminal 1.5 plays an integral role in LAWA’s efforts to modernize the north terminals.

Terminal 1.5 Elements of Project

Project Objectives 
The LAX Terminal 1.5 project will:
Enhance passenger level of service and satisfaction in the north terminals
Provide additional space for federal security requirements
Provide a secure connector between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 to allow passengers to flow between terminals with no requirement for passengers to repeat the security screening process
Provide an uninterrupted link between the ticketing and baggage claim lobbies of both Terminals 1 and 2, improving the passenger experience and providing operational flexibility and efficiency for the airport and airlines

LAX Plan Compliance Review Process:

Prior to issuing any grading, building or use of land permit on the a proposed Project, the Los Angeles City Council must grant an LAX Plan Compliance approval pursuant to the LAX Specific Plan.
