Los Angeles (LAX) terminal change

From 10th December, customers departing from LAX should go to Terminal B (Tom Bradley International Terminal) instead of Terminal 2. Lounge facilities will be available for eligible customers.

Due to ongoing construction work at Los Angeles International Airport, there are some temporary changes to our terminal operations.

You’ll still find our check-in teams ready to welcome you to Terminal 2 as usual, along with security screening and the Terminal 2 departure lounge.

Once you’ve cleared security in Terminal 2, we’ll ask you to proceed to the gate, at which point we’ll provide shuttle busses for the short trip to Terminal B (Tom Bradley International Terminal), where our planes will be operating from. We strongly recommend you make the journey across to Terminal B as soon as you can after clearing security in Terminal 2.

Whilst our LAX Clubhouse unfortunately remains closed at this time, our colleagues will be very pleased to take care of Upper Class and Gold Flying Club customers in the Delta Sky Club on the mezzanine level of the Terminal 2 departure lounge. If you do intend to use the Delta Sky Club please ensure you make you way over to Terminal B at least an hour before the stated departure time.

If you have any questions, our teams will of course be available in Terminal 2 and on hand to assist.

When you arrive in to LAX with us, we’ll be disembarking at Terminal B in the Tom Bradley International Terminal. You’ll be able to collect your bags here, as well as clear Customs and Border Protection. It’s important to note that this is a different terminal to Terminal 2 that we depart from, so please make sure you let family and friends meeting you know in advance, or consider when making parking arrangements.

LAWA the airport authority runs a 24hr shuttle that circles the airports making stops at all of the terminals.
