Qatar Airways is coming to LAX in 2016 with most likely a triple 7.

This showed up over in the Subways/Urban Transport section, but feel like its pretty pertinent to the airport/aviation section. New people mover for LAX by 2023.

The mega-overhaul of LAX's nightmare transportation situation, set to dramatically change the way we come and go from the airport, was outlined last year, with plans for a consolidated rental car center, a people mover train that would connect travelers with the rental car center as well as the Crenshaw Line light rail, and new pick-up and drop-off areas. The Landside Access Modernization Program has now started its environmental review process (due to be complete by late 2016) and the pricetag's gone up to $5 billion (from $4 billion last year), but the whole program is going strong in the direction of actually becoming a timely reality, perhaps even opening in time for a theoretical 2024 Olympics, according to a new release from Los Angeles World Airports, which operates LAX.

A presentation given today to the LAWA Board of Airport Commissioners today offered some updated renderings of the Automated People Mover, which will have six stations along its 2.25-mile route connecting it to light rail, the rental car center, and pick-up/drop-off areas. Construction is expected to start in 2017 and be finished in 2023; Mayor Eric Garcetti has "tasked" LAWA with delivering a completed LAMP "no later than 2023."

JetBlue to Launch Buffalo-Los Angeles Transcon Service

Quote:
JetBlue Airways is launching daily, non-stop, year-round service between Buffalo Niagara International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport on June 16.

[...]

Tickets for the new service are now available for purchase, with introductory one-way fares starting at $99. Travel must be booked by February 2, by the earlier of 11:59 PM ET or local time.

Travel under the introductory fares is valid on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between June 16 and June 29, 2016.

JetBlue’s schedule on the Buffalo-Los Angeles route will see flight B6 491 depart Buffalo Niagara International Airport (IATA code BUF) at 6:40 p.m. daily from June 16 and reach Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at 9:06 p.m. local time.

In the other direction, flight B6 492 will leave LAX at 10:09 p.m. daily from June 16 and land at BUF at 6:05 a.m. the following morning, local time.

[...]

JetBlue will operate the route using Airbus A320 aircraft, each initially fitted with 150 seats but by 2019 all given 12 extra seats to produce a 162-seat configuration.

This is a big deal to BNIA (Buffalo's airport)..... for LAX its nothing. I cant see many people from LA wanting to fly to Buffalo.

For BNIA .... passengers can use LAX as a hub to fly all over the west coast.

I read the real issue is that because JetBlue isn't an international airline like the Big 3, it will make westward travel to Asia more expensive for Buffalonians than if it were an airline like Delta taking them from Buffalo, to LAX and then to Asia.

Jetblue has a lot of partners ...... So i think they will be fine switching planes / airlines at LAX to go along the west coast.

From LA Curbed.

Take a Good Look Around LAX's People Mover System Plans

ast Friday, Los Angeles World Airports—the departments that runs Los Angeles International Airport—held a forum to present and discuss information on the transportation plan that will totally transform the way Angelenos get to and move through LAX. Known as the Landside Access Modernization Program, the plan includes a new automated people mover to carry passengers from the Metro system to the terminals, a consolidated rental car facility, new transportation hubs, and more public parking and pedestrian walkways. LAWA has provided Curbed with some of the new glimpses into LAX's more awesome transportation future.

LAMP is due to be completed, at least partially, by 2023 (in time for the 2024 Olympics, if LA is chosen to host them). A fact sheet from the forum says that construction is expected to begin on the project in the second half of 2017, with "Completion of Phase 1
(including APM & ConRAC)" estimated for sometime in 2023. The materials do emphasize that the light rail station that will ultimately connect Metro to the airport via the Crenshaw Line is a separate project overseen by Metro, and while the agency will work with the LAMP, the project is more of a complement than an actual part of LAWA's plan (that is, they don't really have control over it).

It certainly looks interesting. I really would love something that would rival what other major airports have in transporting passengers across 8 terminals. I wonder what ITF stands for?

Westfield and LAWA reveals renovated LAX T6 facility

Quote:
Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and Westfield have unveiled the new terminal six at Los Angeles International airport (LAX), featuring 21 new retail and dining concepts.

The redevelopment project, LAX’s second terminal renovation after the transformation of T2, which debuted in February, encompasses high-end retail and local dining intertwine with the energy of West Hollywood. The transformation was possible through a $70.5m total investment from LAWA, Westfield and operating partners.

More than 22,000sq ft (2043sq m) of space was transformed in T6, with nearly 5,300sq ft (468sq m) of improvements to common areas.

Brands such as electronics company Belkin, Mac Cosmetics (right), and international business, accessory and travel lifestyle brand Tumi are among some of the names featuring prominently in its retail line-up. Southern California-based boutique retailer M.Fredric will seek to provide travellers the best designer apparel for men, women and kids.

Travel essentials at Los Angeles Magazine News, Access Hollywood, Sunset News, and MARKET 8600 provide a dedicated convenience offer.

The retail offering is combined with a strong food and beverage coverage, including See’s Candies where travellers can choose from over 100 different candies and chocolates with rich heritage.

LAX, which is undergoing an $8.5bn modernisation program, saw a record-breaking 2015 after servicing 74.9 million passengers.

The 20-month redevelopment ahead of schedule and under budget, thanks to LAWA and Westfield’s on-site design, construction and tenant coordination team worked together with their project partners, including Delaware North; HMSHost; Hudson Group; J&H Enterprises; SSP America; and Tumi, to complete the renovation.

“LAWA had the bold vision to completely transform the traveller experience at the airport,” said Westfield vice president at LAX Keith Kaplan. “We’re so honoured to help make that happen, right here in our hometown, and we’re infusing the culture and spirit of Los Angeles into LAX.”

Hudson Group, which is owned by Dufry Group, are both proud of the latest improvements at LAX T6, which will further transform the travel experience for airport customers in L.A., voiced Hudson Group executive vice president of Business Development and Strategy Michael Mullaney. “The new luxurious destination features thoughtful concepts, local perspectives and well-known brands. As the largest concessionaire at LAX with more than 47 stores, and the largest retail concessionaire in LAX T6, we could not be more excited to offer our traveler’s best friend philosophy to customers at one of the country’s busiest airports.”

“We’re raising the bar for what’s possible at an airport,” added Los Angeles World Airports CEO Deborah Flint. “LAWA and Westfield are providing passengers a special experience that allows them to sample the best of L.A., food and drink, unique shops and modern amenities. Now they can find all that and more in terminal six.”

The design inspiration of Sunset Boulevard unified a terminal that had been built out over 40 years. The central satellite was built in 1961, and a connector was later added for the 1984 Olympics. The south end connector was built in the 1990s to accommodate additional growth.

The current facilities now see the new traveler experience mirroring the drive along Sunset Boulevard. The new terminal experience is organised by interconnected neighborhoods that take travellers on a journey. After passing through the TSA checkpoint, travellers initially encounter a Downtown L.A. vibe, with concrete walls and metal finishes.

The new ribbon ceiling and terrazzo floor guide travellers into Sunset Plaza, which has inviting, open spaces to eat, drink and people watch. Travellers then flow into the Sunset Strip and Garden Terrace zones, where a strong retail and F&B vibe is introduced.

“HMSHost is so excited to be part of the enhancements in LAX’s terminal six by bringing new restaurants to travellers,” stated HMSHost vice president of Business Development Amy Dunne, which operates seven dining concepts at T6. “These locations provide variety to travellers while delivering unique culinary offerings and superior customer service. We look forward to continuing to elevate the traveller’s dining experience here at the airport.”

“Osteria is one of the latest examples of SSP America’s ability to bring cool restaurants to the airport,” concluded SSP America CEO Michael Svagdis. “We’ll serve almost 50,000 pizzas this year alone in a restaurant that truly is a stunning addition to T6. We’re grateful for the opportunity to bring this incredible restaurant to LAX.”
