Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is in the middle of a multi-billion dollar development designed to accommodate nine A380 aircraft to park simultaneously at the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
The project which includes new gate and concourse areas is considered to be the largest public works project in the history of the city of Los Angeles and will create 4,000 construction related employment over the four year project.
The project also includes the addition of almost 540,000 square feet of space, to include passenger services, airline lounges a ‘great hall’ for dining and retail shopping.
In early July, Singapore Airlines chose Los Angeles International Airport to be the first North American destination in its network to receive the superjumbo A380s.
The inaugural flight which operates as SQ12 landed at LAX with 444 passengers on board.
The airport currently services A380s through Qantas Airways and will later this year be receiving A380s from Air China.
