Delta Sky Way at LAX Opens 18 Months Ahead of Schedule
The final major phase of the $2.3 billion Delta Sky Way at LAX project has now been completed. That means that Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport is now directly connected to the Tom Bradley International Terminal via moving airside walkways, officially eliminating the need for busing between terminals.
“This modern, state-of-the-art facility has been at the center of Delta’s efforts to become the premier airline of Los Angeles, and now, as we as we celebrate this years-long project being finished much earlier than expected, we are better equipped than ever to provide Angelenos and all of our customers traveling through LA with the truly seamless and elevated experience that they deserve” said Scott Santoro, Vice President of Global Sales.
The airline’s west headhouse and Delta One check-in area opened to customers in June, providing another entry point for check-in and security access. Self-service kiosks in the lobby area make dropping bags and printing boarding passes even easier. On the lower arrivals level of Terminal 3, the exclusive Delta One check-in area offers Delta One customers a private TSA screening lane, direct access to the Delta Sky Club, light food and beverages and white-glove assistance from Delta’s Elite Service agents.
Delta’s new Terminal 3, a 1.2-million-square-foot, 27-gate complex, debuted last April, featuring a centralized check-in lobby, expanded security checkpoint and baggage claim area, as well as a state-of-the-art Delta Sky Club, one of the largest in Delta’s system. Nine additional new gates, new concessions and spacious seating areas opened to customers in October 2022.
LAX serves as one of Delta’s most important coastal hubs, operating over 155 peak-day flights to nearly 55 destinations around the world.
