Neon green signs will be all over Los Angeles International Airport during its upcoming major move of 15 airlines, including Delta.
The relocations are all a result of Delta’s big plans to shift its LAX operations from Terminals 5 and 6 to Terminals 2 and 3, displacing a lot of other airlines.
” Our future in Los Angeles is bright with our $1.9 billion plan for the Delta Sky Way at LAX, an unprecedented public-private partnership through which Delta will undertake the second largest private infrastructure project in the LA basin and completely redevelop Terminals 2 and 3″, said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s Vice President – Sales, West.
On Wednesday, Hawaiian’s Team Kokua employee volunteers will be stationed at both terminals throughout the day to help guide and welcome guests to its Terminal 5 location.

Delta will move portions of its operations on each of the three nights – May 12, 14, 16.
There are 21 airlines in total that are affected by terminal changes over the next week.
“During the renovation and in the weeks following, passengers are advised to check in online, print or download boarding passes and check terminal and gate information before coming to LAX”, Flint said.
“From 13 May, transfer buses will operate from Terminals 2 and 3 to connect guests to their Virgin Australia flights in TBIT”. “They should also arrive at the airport earlier than normal”.
“LAX on the Move”, as they’re calling it, will allow airlines and their affiliated partners to consolidate operations in one or more connected terminals.
It is part of a larger effort that began when American Airlines and Delta Air Lines swapped four gates in Terminals 5 and 6 at the end of January.
Air Canada (from Terminal 2 to Terminal 6), Hawaiian (from Terminal 2 to Terminal 5) and JetBlue (from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5). The lavender diffusers and Biscoff cookies will also be available for all days of the move.
Avianca and Interjet (from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 for check-in, with passengers walking to TBIT to catch their flights) and Spirit (from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5).
Virgin said extra staff will be on the ground to assist with directions at Los Angeles airport, noting there was a bus service for connecting passengers.
