With the United States preparing to host both the 2026 FIFA World Cup and the 2028 Olympics Games, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is undergoing one of the largest public work programs in Californian history.
From its origins as an unpaved landing strip in the 1920s, LAX has grown into one of the world’s largest aviation hubs, welcoming 88 million passengers and seeing some 690,000 aircraft movements in 2019 alone.
From upgrading runways and expanding terminals, to the addition of much-needed transport infrastructure – all while keeping the airport operational – it’s easy to see how the upgrade at LAX is the largest public project in the city’s history.
As work continues in the run up to 2028, regular travellers are set to see one of America’s most notorious airports cruise at new heights in the years ahead.
