Los Angeles Live Flight Arrivals
Some 59 million passengers used Los Angeles Airport last year and arrivals at Los Angeles Airport will find themselves in one of nine passenger terminal buildings upon landing at the airport. Which terminal one will arrive at depends as much on the airline one travels with as the destination one travels from or, in the case of onward domestic flights, one travels to. The arrivals area is on the Lower Level of each terminal, while departures are on the Upper Level.
The central terminal area has a baggage check-in area on the upper departure level, while the baggage reclaim facility is on the lower level. Here arrivals at Los Angeles Airport will find restrooms and toilet facilities, shops and restaurants, snack bars and bakeries as well as duty free shopping. Public telephones are also located in the central terminal as are business centres with services like copying, fax and WIFI.
The Tom Bradley International Terminal has a first aid station and special telephones with a direct link to motels and hotels in the airport area, as well as bus and limousine services and car rental companies. A free shuttle service takes passengers by bus to all the other terminals and to the remoter parking lots. Los Angeles Airport Arrivals with time on their hands between onward flights can enjoy a meal and refreshments at the Encounter Restaurant, situated 70 feet above ground in the centre of the airport’s historic Theme Building complex, where they will be greeted by an observation deck with views over the runways and space-age interior decorations to give them an idea what the re-developed airport will look like when the project is complete.
There are some 8,000 parking spaces and arrivals at Los Angeles Airport will find them just opposite the central terminal building, while parking lot C is further away and requires passengers to take the free shuttle service to reach the 4,500 additional parking spaces in this area.
Arrivals at Los Angeles Airport can choose public transportation from the many airport bus services, a free door-to-door van shuttle service, local bus lines servicing the airport and the city, as well as light rail trains, taxi cabs and car rental. A free of charge shuttle service connects the airport with the Metro Green Line Light Railway, which provides fast and efficient onward travel to the city.
Los Angeles Airport arrivals needing transport to one of Southern California’s other airports are provided with a LAX FlyAway bus service that provides nonstop transportation to Van Nuys Bus Terminal in the San Fernando Valley, downtown LA’s Union Station in Orange County and to Westwood / UCLA as well as the City of Irvine in Orange County.
Los Angeles Airport offers assistance and facilities to arrivals with disabilities. There are special parking spaces, ramps and lifts/elevators, and a free of charge shuttle service that is equipped for wheelchair users will take arrivals at Los Angeles Airport to the remoter parking lots at area C and to other terminals. Passengers with hearing disabilities or speech issues will find telecommunication devices for the deaf (TDD) in all the terminals.
