Aviation: Concourses 0 and 9 planned at LAX

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has revealed outline plans for two new concourses at the airport, along with revisions to the taxiways on the north and south sides of the airfield. The new terminal facilities will be to the east of the existing Terminal 1 (concourse 0) and to the east of Terminal 8 and on the east side of Sepulveda Boulevard (concourse 9). The buildings will "upgrade passenger processing capabilities and enhance the customer experience" and are expected to be ready for the 2028 Summer Olympics which will be hosted in Los Angeles.

Concourse 0

Concourse 0 is to be built on a car part east of terminal 1 and will also involve the removal of a northerly vehicle access route to the central terminal area (CTA). The building, projected to cover 745,000sq ft, is expected to include 11 additional gates, but will necessitate the removal of two existing gates. It will also include a customs and border inspection station to enable the processing of international arrivals. Southwest is likely to be the main tenant, although other budget carriers may utilise parts of the facility.

Concourse 9

Concourse 9 will be to the east of Sepulveda Boulevard, the thoroughfare that passes under the southerly runways at LAS. The facility is likely to have 12 gates and will cover nearly 1.2m sq ft. It will be build on
