As we wrote about in April, LAX is currently the site of a huge terminal swap that’s being anchored by Delta Air Lines. Delta is moving from Terminal 5 and 6 to 2 and 3 and just completed its second overnight relocation. Today and tomorrow, it is operating flights from Terminals 2, 3, 5, and 6—which is crazy.
Here’s the advice LAX is offering: “Passengers are strongly encouraged to check in, print or download boarding passes before leaving for LAX, so they can be aware of the changes and arrive at the correct terminal for their departure. In addition, passengers are encouraged to arrive earlier than usual, 3 hours for a domestic flight, 4 hours for an international flight. When arriving at LAX, look up at new signage that will be updated nightly to reflect the moves, and which will identify the new airline terminal locations. Finally, passengers are reminded to ask for help if they have problems finding their flights. More than 200 volunteers are on hand, many of them in green vests that match a green-wrapped shuttle bus that will run on both the upper-and lower-level roadways to help transport passengers to their correct terminal.”
And it’s not just Delta you have to worry about, since over one-third of LAX’s nearly 70 airline partners are relocating their operations—many to new terminals, and others to new ticket counters in their current home.
