LAX Opens Delta Sky Way

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Delta Air Lines celebrated the opening of the $2.3 billion Delta Sky Way project that includes an enclosed passageway creating a direct post-security connection between Terminal 3 and Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT). The new structure eliminates the need for busing between Terminals 2, 3 and TBIT.

The joint investment by both Los Angeles World Airports and Delta enables ticketed passengers and airport employees to journey from Terminal 1 to Terminal 8, post-security inside the airport. Officials from Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA) and Delta noted the new passageway opened ahead of schedule and on budget.

“This new passageway will significantly enhance the travel experience for millions of international and domestic guests,” said Justin Erbacci, LAWA CEO. “LAWA is thankful to its amazing partners Delta and Hensel Phelps and the entire LAWA team who rose to the occasion to deliver the Delta Sky Way project.”

Airport officials note the ability for travelers to remain inside LAX while traveling among terminals will provide access to a wide variety of food and beverage vendors, shopping/entertainment experiences, lounges, children’s play areas or pet relief stations.

This spring, the Delta Sky Way’s West Headhouse and Delta One check-in area began providing another entry point to check in and get to security at Terminal 3, a 1.2-million-square-foot, 27-gate complex that debuted in April 2022. Nine additional new Terminal 3 gates, new concessions and spacious seating areas opened to customers in October 2022.
