It Will Be Uptight at LAX For Some Time
Tuesday, 03 October 2006
The Bradley terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will have its first major constructions work since the 1 million square foot terminal was buit in 1984. The construction is scheduled to begin in January 2007 and to continue through March 2010. The project is the largest single contract ever awarded in the city of Los Angeles' history. Bradley Terminal is the primary terminal for all international flights at LAX.

The purpose of the construction is to accommodate the new Airbus 380. The Airbus 380, which currently under development, will be considerably larger than the current largest aircraft, the Boeing 747, and will require enlarged facilities to use the airport and allow the 550 passengers per aircraft to easily move on and off the plane.

LAX services about 10 million international travelers per year.
