US Airways changes terminals at LAX
LOS ANGELES (CNS) – US Airways will move its operations at Los Angeles International Airport from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 starting today.
The airline’s gates, baggage service and customer service will all move to Terminal 3. The ticketing counter will be on the east end of the terminal on the upper level while the baggage service office will be on the east side on the lower arrivals level.
The move was negotiated prior to the US Airways’ merger last year with American Airlines, which operates out of Terminal 4, airport spokeswoman Amanda Parsons said.
The merger formed the world’s largest airline. The two airlines together offer 175 daily departures out of LAX to 54 destinations in seven countries and territories. The company employs nearly 5,000 people in the Los Angeles area, officials said.
Passengers with either American Airlines or US Airways will be able to shuttle between the two airlines, which are separated by the Tom Bradley International Terminal, without leaving security. The service stops at Gate 39 at Terminal 3 and Gate 44 at Terminal 4.
Terminal 3 will not have a US Airways Club lounge, so members will have access to the American Airlines Admirals Club lounge in Terminal 4.
