LAX News Release: Airlines Relocation Announcement

From May 12 till May 17, Delta Air Lines will be moving its operations at LAX to Terminals 2 and 3 from Terminals 5 and 6, which means 19 other carriers will relocate. Aeromexico, Virgin Atlantic and WestJet, which are partnered with Delta, will remain in Terminals 2 and 3. The move is meant to give Delta room to grow, adding seven extra gates and giving the carrier easier access to the airport’s international terminal and to Delta’s partners.

The following airlines will relocate: Aer Lingus, Air Canada, Avianca, Copa, Hainan Airlines, Hawaiian Air, Interjet, Qatar Airways, Sun Country, Thomas Cook, Volaris, XL Airways France, Allegiant Air, Boutique Air, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, Virgin America and Virgin Australia.

Air Canada, Virgin America, XL Airways France and Boutique Air will head to Terminal 6 while Hawaiian, JetBlue, Spirit, Allegiant, Frontier and Sun Country will relocate to Terminal 5. The other carriers will fly out of the Bradley International Terminal.

In addition, as of April 7, all Copa-operated flights will depart and arrive from Tom Bradley International Terminal. Copa Airlines, a subsidiary of Copa Holdings, S.A, and member of the Star Alliance global airlines network, announces its check-in counter relocation at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Terminal 3, departure level, effective April 7, 2017.
