Delta, LAWA Formally Kick-Off $1.86-Billion Project To Modernize, Upgrade And Connect Terminals 2, 3 At Lax

Delta Air Lines and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have formally kicked off the Delta Sky Way at LAX project — the $1.86 billion plan to modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3, and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B). Construction is expected to begin this fall. The project kick-off follows the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners' (BOAC) recent approval of the largest tenant improvement award in its history, which cleared the way for the Delta Sky Way at LAX to begin.


Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Delta CEO Ed Bastian, LA City Councilmember Mike Bonin, BOAC President Sean Burton and LAWA CEO Deborah Flint celebrated the milestone today at a press conference where they also shared new renderings of the future facility.
"Los Angeles is constantly reaching new heights, and today's project launch creates jobs and forges global connections," said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. "The modernization of Terminals 2 and 3 is an investment in our economy and people, and Delta's partnership is helping to accelerate an era of growth and innovation in Los Angeles."


"This is really a milestone for us, it means we are finally making more progress at LAX," said BOAC President Sean Burton, who was joined by BOAC Vice President Valeria Velasco and Commissioners Jeffrey Daar, Gabriel Eshagian and Bea Hsu at today's news conference.


“We understand that we have much more work to do, but it is important to acknowledge the steps that got us here and to celebrate the benchmarks and milestones along the way," Burton added. "This will play a significant role in moving LAX to the top rank of global airports."


"Our vision is a gold-standard airport, and one of our strategic plan goals is delivering exceptional facilities and experiences at the same time," said LAWA CEO Deborah Flint. "And even though that is no easy feat, I am confident that with the team at Delta and the partnership we have, that we can achieve that vision."


"Nearly 10 years ago, we made a commitment to be LA's premier, premium airline. Today, LAX is one of the most important hubs in our network where we operate more than 170 daily flights and connect more passengers to our partner airlines than anywhere else in the U.S.," said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. "The Delta Sky Way at LAX project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in and transform the airport experience in partnership with LAWA and the City of Los Angeles. Delta is excited and proud to be leading the way not just in LA but in our hubs across the country, with more than $12 billion in airport infrastructure investments in progress over the next few years."
