Delta Air Lines announced $229 million in renovations to terminal five at Los Angeles International airport (LAX) today.
The project includes doubling the size of both the ticketing and security screening areas, renovating the Delta Club, new baggage claim carousels and new food and retail outlets in the terminal, according to the Atlanta-based carrier.
"Los Angeles is a critical global gateway for Delta's domestic and international customers and we are thrilled this project - which will greatly improve the customer experience from curbside to planeside - is underway," says Ranjan Goswami, managing director of west coast sales at Delta, in a statement.
The airline will contribute $12 million to the project, the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) $25 million in reimbursements and LAX operator Los Angeles World Airports will cover the balance.
Delta will operate 118 peak day departures from the airport by the third quarter and has preferential use of the 14 gates in terminal five.
