Delta to Relocate to Terminals 2 and 3 at LAX in May
Delta Air Lines announced that it will begin the first phase of its relocation to Terminals 2 and 3 at Los Angeles International Airport on May 12. The move from the carrier’s current home at Terminals 5 and 6 is expected to impact 21 airlines and will last through May 17.
The move is part of a major $1.9-billion project at LAX that will renovate and connect Terminals 2 and 3 to create a hub for SkyTeam airlines. Other SkyTeam carriers, including Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic, and WestJet, already operate out of the two terminals.
Terminal 2 recently completed $332 million in upgrades. New concessions at Terminals 2 and 3 include Shake Shack and Angel City Brewery.
Once the move is complete, Delta will have 23 gates at the airport.
To facilitate the move, American Airlines relocated four of its gates as well as its American Eagle shuttle bus from Terminal 6 to Terminal 5 in January. It is opening a new check-in area at the east end of Terminal 5 to accommodate passengers and passengers can connect to flights in its main terminal, Terminal 4, through an airside connector.
