LAX United Airlines Terminal Redevelopment Program

About the Project

This development program modernized the United Airlines Terminals 6, 7, and 8 at LAX by extending the useful life of the terminals, upgrading the baggage and passenger security screening facilities and improving the customer service facilities. The reconfigured airline gates accommodate 19 narrow- and wide-body aircraft, with 29 new or refurbished passenger boarding bridges. The remodeled boarding gate areas now feature a modern design, including a variety of comfortable seating options and numerous charging stations for customers’ electronic devices. United Club members can enjoy the airline’s new larger Terminal 7 lounge, with an outdoor terrace, where they can work or relax while taking in spectacular views of the Los Angeles metro area, Hollywood, and the Pacific Ocean.


The project incorporated a sustainable and energy efficient design that enhances the passenger experience while minimizing impacts to the environment. All public restrooms were replaced with new environmentally efficient restrooms, and the existing Checked Baggage Inspection System was replaced with a new efficient, high-speed system that assists with an efficient location and pick up of traveler’s luggage.
