Delta Airlines helps doll up LAX airport

Delta airlines and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have teamed up with the City of Los Angeles to give a $229 million makeover to LAX Terminal 5. Construction has already begun on the work which is set to continue in stages until 2015.

Plans include the lobby and security checkpoints being doubled in size, additional VIP areas, new baggage carrousels plus updated facilities and décor. Passengers will also be able to enjoy 15 new shops and restaurants (including some by celebrity chefs). The shops and restaurants will be opened in phases this year.

Los Angeles mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, praised Delta's investment, “by overhauling Terminal 5 at LAX, Delta Air Lines helps us ensure that LAX becomes the premier gateway to Los Angeles and to the rest of the United States.”  Ranjan Goswami, a Delta managing director returned the compliment saying, “None of this would be possible without the great partnership and collaborative effort made by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LAWA Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey. Their leadership has truly paved the way for the improvements our Los Angeles-area customers are already starting to see and feel.” 

The overhaul is part of an ongoing $4.1 billion project to improve the whole of LAX, the world's 6th busiest airport. “This is an important milestone in the continuing modernisation of LAX,” said LAWA Executive Director, Gina Marie Lindsey. She added, “The partnership with Delta Air Lines is enabling significant improvement in customer service and convenience for both domestic and international travellers.”

Delta's involvement comes after Delta announced an increase to it's flight last month and looks set to partner with Virgin Atlantic later this year. Delta was also given the accolade of 'Most Admired Airline in the World' in a Fortune magazine list released earlier this year.
