Travellers can look forward to the all-new Los
Angeles International Airport experience a full 18 months sooner
than planned.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined leaders
from Delta and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) on Thursday to
announce the acceleration of the Delta Sky Way terminal
modernization project – a $1.86 billion project to modernize,
upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3, and the Tom Bradley
International Terminal that will now be ready in mid-2023.

The announcement was made during a “topping out”
ceremony as the final steel beam was secured to complete
the central headhouse structure, where Delta’s consolidated
check-in lobby, security checkpoint and bag claim facility will be

Lower passenger volumes at LAX and throughout the U.S. are allowing for the temporary closure of Terminal 3 and the acceleration of the project, making it possible for the facility to open in mid-2023, instead of late 2024. Click to enlarge.

“LAX is a central pillar of our economic strength
— part of the connective tissue bringing our city to the rest of
the world — and we remain focused on enhancing its infrastructure,
strengthening our workforce, and transforming the traveler
experience,” said Mayor Garcetti. “Even as we confront the
immediate crisis of COVID19, we are accelerating our work to
devise a premier airport where visitors are greeted by reimagined
terminals, workers land in good-paying jobs, and the city of the
future truly takes off.”

Consolidated Baggage Claim

Lower passenger volumes at LAX and throughout the
U.S. are allowing for the temporary closure of Terminal 3 and the
acceleration of the project, making it possible for the facility
to open in mid-2023, instead of late 2024.

“If there’s a silver lining to fewer people flying
right now, it’s that we have an opportunity and a team with the
know-how to pull the future forward on infrastructure projects
like Sky Way at LAX, which will deliver an exceptional experience
much faster than planned for our customers and employees,” said
Mark Pearson, Delta Vice President – Corporate Real Estate. “This
is all possible thanks to the incredible support of LAWA, the City
of Los Angeles and our construction partners who are aligned with
our vision, and our employees who continue to be nimble in
supporting customers throughout each phase of construction.”

Delta’s LAX central headhouse will open in the
first quarter of 2022. The facility will also provide connectivity
beyond security between Terminals 2 and 3, currently only possible
via shuttle bus. The project will provide access to the LAX
Automated People Mover, opening in 2023.

Sean Burton, President of Board of Airport
Commissioners, said, “By working in close partnership and
cooperation with Delta Air Lines, Los Angeles World Airports is
leveraging opportunities to create efficiencies and deliver this
project ahead of schedule by more than a year. “We are grateful to
Delta and all our partners who are helping us build world class
facilities worthy of our great City.”

Delta Sky Way at LAX

“As we reimagine Los Angeles International
Airport, the modernization of Terminals 2 and 3 is an example of
how we are realizing our goal to be one of the top international
airports in the world by creating new facilities and passenger
experiences that are modern, streamlined and built on a framework
of advanced technology,” said Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive
Officer, LAWA. “The new headhouse will be a new front door for
Delta Air Lines guests, creating a key linking point for the north
terminals and providing easy access to the Automated People Mover
train when it begins operations in 2023.”

When completed, the modern LAX facility will offer
more security screening capacity, automated security lanes, more
gate-area seating and Delta’s largest Delta Sky Club. That is in
addition to all the amenities that Delta customers have come to
expect at LAX, including the Delta ONE at LAX check-in space and a concession program in partnership with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield

Other key features and benefits include:

* A 27-gate complex on Terminals 2 and 3 with a
secure connection to Tom Bradley International Terminal, enabling
Delta and its global partners to effectively utilize gates in all
terminals, while allowing customers to seamlessly traverse between
each using convenient corridors, cutting down connecting times by
up to 20 minutes

* A new headhouse with centralized lobby, security
screening checkpoint, baggage claim and Delta Sky Club

* Reconstructed Terminal 3 concourse with new
gates and a complete renovation of the 1960s-style satellite
building. Terminal 3 will be larger, have more gate and seating
space and feature premium retail and dining lineups

* The largest Delta Sky Club found anywhere
featuring an indoor/outdoor double bar, a year-round outdoor Sky
Deck, premium showers and more

* A revamped Delta One check-in experience to
speed through check-in, expedited security lines and more

* Convenient and contemporary restroom facilities

* More access to at-seat power in gate areas

* State-of-the-art finishes that provide a greater
sense of space and comfort

* Modern, intuitive signage

* Connection to the Automated People Mover train,
which is expected to be fully operational in 2023, connecting to
the Intermodal Transportation Facility – West, Consolidated
Rent-a-Car facility. and ultimately the LA Metro light rail,
making it easier for customers to get from across LA to their
airport terminal without getting into a car

* Airfield efficiency, thanks to dual taxi lanes
that allow for more streamlined movement of aircraft and on time

Consolidated Check-In Lobby

“We’ve built a robust domestic and international
network out of Los Angeles that customers have quickly come to
rely on,” said Scott Santoro – Delta Vice President – Sales. “We
remain committed to offering the destinations and service
customers have come to expect from Delta out of L.A. as the Sky
Way project continues and our network is poised to be stronger
than ever out of LAX as we recover from the pandemic.”

The Delta Sky Way project is part of the $14
billion LAX Modernization Program that will see LAX transformed in
advance of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles,
of which Delta is the inaugural founding partner.

It is being completed in partnership with LAWA and
the City of Los Angeles, and is part of more than $12 billion in
airport infrastructure projects that Delta is investing in at several of its key hubs in Atlanta,
Los Angeles, New York, Salt Lake City and Seattle.

Delta has also accelerated construction of the
$3.9 billion transformation of its New York – LaGuardia hub with
an anticipated new completion by the end of 2025 – six months
ahead of schedule. Meanwhile, the new Salt Lake City Airport that
opened in September of this year will see projects including
airfield pavement work and remaining gates at concourses A and B
completed by mid-2024 – a full year ahead of schedule.
