LAX International Airport

LAX is a hub of innovation and change. Having shaken off the shackles of the past, the airport has invested time, money and energy into creating an inviting and efficient gateway to North America for travellers, from unique retailers and inspiring architecture to some of the best technology and connectivity in the world. It’s LAX, but definitely not as you know it.
