About Los Angeles International Airport

The history of the airport begins in 1928 when the Los Angeles City Council selected the 640 acres to be an airfield. By 1941 the airfield had been developed into a full fledged airport and by 1949 earned the name Los Angeles International Airport.

LAX has nine passenger terminals with 128 gates. A shuttle transports passengers between the terminals. The airport recently decided to enlarge three terminals and to put in a elevated train system to more quickly and efficiently move travelers around the airport and ease congestion. The project begins in 2019 and is set to finish in 2021 and once the people mover is fully functional, it will run every two minutes, 24/7, and be free of charge.
