About the Project

The $203 million, 188,664-SF, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Terminal 6 (T6) Relocation and Renovation for Alaska Airlines from Terminal 3 to Terminal 6 morphed T6 into Alaska Airline’s signature “Airport of the Future.”

Patented in 2006, this system provides customer-friendly islands of check-in kiosks for bags and tickets, typically halving the wait time for passengers. The project consisted of a new state-of-the-art in-line baggage screening system to replace the existing baggage handling system, as well as an overall terminal upgrade, including a new ticket lobby for Alaska Airlines, expansion of the security checkpoint, renovation of passenger hold rooms, a new AS first class lounge – Alaska Board Room, AS operations support offices, refurbishment of passenger boarding bridges, construction of a Federal Inspection Services (FIS) bridge to increase international gate accessibility, elevator/escalator replacements, and the implementation of a new common use IT system for all Terminal 6 airline tenants.
