LAX Unveils $148 Million Connector To Link International, Domestic Terminals

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Passengers moving from some domestic terminals to the international terminal at Los Angeles International Airport can now avoid a long walk and security re-screening thanks to a new connector.

The $148.5 million connector opened with fanfare Thursday. It allows travelers to move directly between the recently expanded Tom Bradley International Terminal on the west side of the airport and the five terminals on the airport’s south-facing side.

Domestic passengers arriving at the south side terminals can now catch international connecting flights without having to go through screening again. Passengers arriving at the international terminal must have bags re-screened after clearing customs but there’s now an expedited screening area directly connecting to the south side terminals.

The connector is part of a multibillion-dollar modernization of the nation’s third busiest airport.

    Can’t believe the writer didn’t explain what the “connector” was; only if you look at the clip do you discover it is a moving sidewalk. Nearly 150-mil for that? Wow!

    It’s more than just the moving sidewalk.
