LAX Terminal 1 improvements to the tune of $400 Million

Thursday, January 17, 2013
By George Hatcher

Although Southwest has outstanding legal claims against Los Angeles World Airports, the following items are are on the table:

Southwest Airlines will

  • build a new checked baggage security system
  • improve passenger security checkpoints
  • refresh passenger waiting areas
  • refurbish the baggage claim area
  • construct new passenger boarding bridges
  • renovate the terminal lobby

Los Angeles World Airports will fund most of the renovations, along with—hopefully—federal grant money. Los Angeles World Airports may give the airline rent credits or by pay a lump sum.

If the lease is signed Southwest will drop legal claims against Los Angeles World Airports; if renovation proceeds, Southwest will pay about $9.5 million in rent the first year, and US Airways will move to Terminal 3.

The Board of Airport Commissioners has approved improvements in “dog-eared” Terminal one.
