Los Angeles International Airport renovation project

Lobby: You can look forward to a brighter, more open check-in area.

Security: The security checkpoint will be consolidated in one location and will have 12 lanes to reduce lines and wait times.

Baggage claim: A redesigned baggage claim area will help customers get on their way faster.

United Club: The brand new, larger United Club location will offer more amenities, including an outdoor terrace.

After clearing the security checkpoint, customers are welcomed into an open, airy terminal.

In its new home on the second floor of LAX, the new United Club location features sweeping views of the airstrip and out toward the Pacific Ocean.

We're working on a variety of enhancements that will create a brighter, more open United experience at Los Angeles International Airport. In partnership with Los Angeles World Airports, we’ve created a multi-year plan to renovate and improve the airport experience at United Terminal 7, Concourses 7 and 8. Completion is scheduled for mid-2017.

Here are the key changes you'll see:

  • A renovated check-in area with more self-service kiosks to speed up the check-in process.
  • A new, state-of-the-art security checkpoint, featuring automatic bin return, parallel lanes for travelers and their luggage, and an improved layout that makes TSA screening more efficient.
  • A brand new United ClubSM location with extra seating, powered workstations, modern furniture and an outdoor terrace with stunning views of the airport, downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills.
  • New gate areas with better seating options and added charging stations, for more comfort and productivity while you're waiting to board.
  • Redesigned, relocated carousels in baggage claim allowing for easier baggage pickup.

As construction is being completed and a portion of our lobby remains closed for remodeling, you may want to allow extra time for check-in and security processing. We recommend that you check in through or the United app, if possible, to avoid delays. Additionally, please allow extra time for bag drop off and security screening.
