Next month one of the largest terminal moves in the history of commercial aviation will occur at LAX beginning the night of May 12th. 21 airlines will relocate terminals over a one-week period. Each airline will complete its relocation overnight while maintaining normal operations throughout the day.

How will passengers know where to go?
Before even heading to LAX, check-in online, print your boarding pass and note your terminal and gate numbers. All ground transportation (e.g. Taxis, Lyft, & Shuttles) and airport partners (e.g. TSA, CBP) will be updated on the airlines’ new homes.
During the week of the move, you will find approx. 500 new way-finding signs, additional airport personnel, and dedicated way-finders to assist with passenger navigation.
What happens if passengers arrive at the wrong side of the airport?
Pre-security, there will be a month-long shuttle between Terminals 2/3 and 5/6 to augment existing LAX Shuttle Airline Connections. While passengers are encouraged to undergo security screening at their correct terminals, there will also be a bus post-security to connect Terminal 2, 3, and 5 during the week of the move.
What else do I need to know?
LAX gate numbers reflect the terminals they are in (Terminal 6 contains gates 60-69). Please check terminal and gate information before coming to LAX, and allow for extra time at the airport.
