LAX American Airlines Terminals 4 & 5 Redevelopment Program

About the Project

The 28-gate American Airlines Terminals 4 & 5 Redevelopment Program begins with the design and construction of the connection between the terminals and the future Automated People Mover. The program will include combining the headhouse entrances of Terminals 4 and 5 to create a 300,000 SF centralized facility. The new headhouse will provide check-in areas, ticket counters and baggage system operations. A new floor will be constructed for two new security screening checkpoints. The secured side connection between both terminals will enhance the passenger experience by allowing passengers to move freely between Tom Bradley International Terminal, Terminal 4 and Terminal 5.


The modernization of Terminals 4 and 5 will increase sustainability through achieving LEED Silver certification. When completed, the new facility will create a world-class customer experience starting at the entrance and ending on the plane.
