The world’s fourth busiest airport, LAX in Los Angeles, could soon have a brand new terminal.
LAX is already undergoing renovations, but this could be a separate project. LAX operator Los Angeles World Airports released an initial study Thursday of the Airfield and Terminal Modernization Project, which would reconfigure airport runways and bring a new concourse to Terminal 1, in addition to creating a Terminal 9 on the eastern side of Sepulveda Boulevard.
Terminal 9 would actually be the tenth terminal at LAX. Tom Bradley International Terminal doesn’t have a number.
The proposed project would add 20 new gates to the airport, as well as customs facilities for international arrivals, new baggage claim areas, and an additional stop on the forthcoming people mover system.
There’s no timeline yet, but the new terminal would be ready for the 2028 Olympics.
