Map of Tom Bradley International

The West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal provide a modern guest experience with cutting-edge technology, a beautifully designed interior featuring extensive use of natural light, and a state-of-the-art baggage handling system with early bag storage. The gates, which cost $1.73 billion to build, serve both international and domestic flights and offer numerous comfortable seating options, with thousands of places to plug in while accessing next-generation wireless services. The facility features a “neighborhood” concept with the main core of the building considered the “downtown” area because of the high ceilings and elevator towers. Colorful mosaic tiles pay homage to the mid-century modern design of LAX and start the transition to other neighborhoods throughout the facility, ranging from the desert to the ocean. Additional passenger amenities include retail outlets and restrooms, along with automated boarding gates, children’s play areas, nursing rooms, a quiet room and a service-animal relief area. Sustainability features include "cool" roofing and paving materials that absorb heat instead of reflecting it back into the atmosphere, insulated glass that allows in more light, reducing electricity use, and water-saving plumbing fixtures that reduce water consumption by 30 percent compared to traditional fixtures.
