Delta has completed its first phase of the Sky Way project that will connect travelers to LAX terminals by a continuous walkway. The company’s chief executive officer Ed Bastian said, “This is just one example of how Delta can use our network and global reach to help improve customers’ lives.”
Delta Air Lines said Tuesday that the first phase of its Delta Sky Way project at Los Angeles International Airport is complete, with a $2.3 billion, 27-gate terminal to follow.
All of this is part of Delta’s broader $12 billion investment to improve its hubs over the next decade.
What’s Hot Right Now
The LAX Sky Way project is a collaboration between Delta and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).
“More than a decade ago, we made the commitment to become Los Angeles’ leading airline. Today marks a significant step in realizing the Delta Sky Way project’s vision. “We’ve created a contemporary, state-of-the-art facility in conjunction with LAWA and the City of Los Angeles that will make flying via LAX a smooth and upgraded experience,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said during a ceremony at the airport.
“Our numerous important infrastructure expenditures totalling more than $12 billion throughout the nation include this terminal unveiling.” Customers will pick Delta for leading with innovation to construct the airports of the future from coast to coast.”
Delta, the world’s biggest and most well-known airline, has long been devoted to improving and modernizing the airport experience for passengers at its west coast hub. Customers will be welcomed for the first time on April 20 to the consolidated check-in lobby, larger security checkpoint, and baggage claim, resulting in a more efficient and seamless experience from the minute they arrive.
Customers will be served by 32 self-serve kiosks and 46 check-in positions in the consolidated check-in lobby.

Los Angeles Mayor Erik Garcetti stated, “LAX is a vital pillar of our economic strength, and our ability to bounce back so successfully from the epidemic is substantially connected to the investments we’ve made to help fulfill its full potential.” “This building marks the next step in our efforts to radically rethink this airport, joining a long list of recently completed initiatives that are improving the passenger experience and converting LAX into one of the world’s finest airports.”
Terminals 2 and 3 will be a consolidated, 1.2 million-square-foot, state-of-the-art, 27-gate complex when the Delta Sky Way at LAX project is completed in 2023, enabling an easy-to-navigate customer experience. The Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B) will be linked to Terminals 2 and 3, allowing for easy airside connections to Delta and Delta partner-operated aircraft.
