IMG_8924American Airlines executives and local officials broke ground on Wednesday on the $1.6 billion renovation of the airline’s terminals at Los Angeles International Airport.

The Fort Worth-based airline occupies Terminals 4 and 5 at the airport.

The project, which will be undertaken in phases over a 15-year period, will include combining the entrances of the two terminals to create what the airline refers to as a “unified departure hall with new kiosks and ticket counters in the check-in area.

It will also include new baggage claim areas, a centralized security checkpoint, and airside connections to both terminals. Eventually, a new people mover system will shuttle passengers from a new Metro station at the airport to all of the airport’s terminals.

“We are re-imagining this entire airport, every single terminal from the ground up,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti at the ceremony.
