Terminal 2 & 3 Modernization Project at Los Angeles International Airport

About the Project

The Delta Air Lines Terminal 2 & 3 Modernization Project at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), “Delta Sky Way at LAX” is a $1.9 billion, 658,000 SF, two-phase modernization project that enables co-location with airline partners in Terminals 2, 3, and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).


Phase one will feature a new four-level Central Headhouse connecting Terminals 2 and Terminal 3 running along World Way which includes the Arrivals/Baggage Claim Level and a new TSA baggage inspection system, Ticketing Level, TSA Security Checkpoint Level, Delta Operations space, and a new Club space on the top level. The new three-level concourse connects the existing West Headhouse and the New Central Headhouse to the Terminal 3 Satellite. This includes the apron level with baggage sortation, Passenger Level with Gates, hold rooms and concessions, and the top level with Delta operations space.


Phase two will include the demolition of the West Headhouse and replacement with the new West Headhouse, which links the LAMP project (LAX Train System) to Terminal 3 as well as the Central Headhouse, Terminal 3 Concourse, and a new connector to Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). The Terminal 3 Satellite will also be renovated, and the building will be redesigned to include Apron Level offices for ramp functions and the passenger level for gate access.


The Delta Sky Way project provides all the amenities that Delta’s customers have come to expect at LAX, including a private Delta One check-in lounge, new Delta Sky Clubs, fast check-in for Delta shuttle services, and an integrated in-line baggage system. When completed, the facility will offer convenient passenger flows, sufficient gate-area seating, and a world-class concession program. Construction began on Terminals 2 and 3 in April 2019 and is expected to be completed in December 2023.
