Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and Westfield recently unveiled a new look Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Terminal 2, which they describe as an important milestone in the modernisation of LAX.
LAX’s Terminal 2 now has 16 new dining and retail brands to serve the more than 5 million passengers who use it annually.
LAX says almost 76,000sq ft (7,060m²) of T2 has been transformed, including more than 15,000sq ft (1,393m²) of new dining and retail space. Westfield says it has invested $78.3 million to create a dining and retail collection that includes 16 new concepts, seven of which are Southern California brands. The upgrades throughout the terminal are part of a larger project, designed to deliver “a more holistic customer journey.”
Los Angeles and LAX had a record-breaking year in 2015. The city had 45.5 million visitors, and LAX – undergoing an $8.5 billion modernisation programme – handled 74.9 million passengers. The 20-month redevelopment at Terminal 2 was the terminal’s first upgrade in nearly 30 years. LAX says the entire process was done while keeping the 24-hour terminal open, maintaining customer service and flight operations.
