American Airlines is on a journey of building a terminal for tomorrow, a substantial multi-year commitment to modernize our hub at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and improve the customer experience at LAX’s two busiest domestic terminals to make traveling as easy as possible.
The airline, which will celebrate 75 years of service to Los Angeles later this year, recently celebrated a significant milestone in its construction journey at LAX, in which team members signed their names onto a piece of history that will prominently live atop of the Terminal 4 and 5 CORE.
“We are creating the airport of the future at LAX, setting new standards for design, functionality, ease of use and the overall passenger experience,” said Justin Erbacci, chief executive officer, Los Angeles world airports. “The topping off of Terminal 4.5 is another step forward in our overall modernization program, and we are proud to partner with American Airlines to fulfill our vision of delivering a world-class airport.”
“I’m excited to begin the next chapter as we move forward with the construction project and building out the Terminals 4 and 5 CORE,” said Rich Ashlin, managing director, LAX. “It’s great news for our team members and customers alike. We are building something that our customers will enjoy and we can be truly proud of.”
“Looking forward past the pandemic, we have a laser focus on delivering a reimagined, premium experience for our customers,” Ashlin continued. “Although fewer people are flying right now, we are preparing for their return and looking forward to brighter days ahead.”
