Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is poised to regain the spotlight as one of the leading airports in the world thanks to an unprecedented level of construction not seen since the 1984 Olympic Games. Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), a department within the City of Los Angeles, which operates LAX has embarked on a multi-billion dollar capital improvement programme at the airport.Passenger volumes and new generation aircraft service has steadily increased at LAX, necessitating the need to modernise and renovate the airport. These improvements aim to dramatically enhance the passenger experience from curbside to airside and re-establish LAX as a modern U.S. gateway in a competitive global market. With over $4.1 billion being invested in completed or on-going projects, the modernisation is easily the largest public works project in the history of Los Angeles. The modernisation is expected to create 39,900 local jobs, and will pump $6.89 billion dollars into the local economy.
