The upgraded Terminal 6 has been unveiled after a $200m+ redevelopment programme jointly implemented by the TSA and Los Angeles World Airports over the past 13 months.
LAX Terminal 6 will now be the home of Alaska Airlines, which has also been involved in the upgrade, and the carrier’s presently relocating there from Terminal 3. Los Angeles Terminal 6 features a host of innovations centred on an ‘airport of the future’ passenger check-in concept. For passengers, there is an array of self-service check-in desks, at which boarding passes can be printed and checked bags can be paid for. There’s a bag check-in station and then an advanced conveyor belt system which, having passed through security, feeds luggage directly onto the waiting aircraft.
The new LAX Terminal 6 also features an energy-efficient Board Room airline lounge with reduced-consumption lighting systems, electrical outlets in place at 50 per cent of the boarding gate area seating and new hi-tech information displays.
