Qantas Shuffles LAX Terminals In Preparation For A380 Service

Make Way For The Superjumbo!

With the start of the Qantas A380 service scheduled for October 20, the Australian flag carrier is making terminal changes to more efficiently accommodate passengers flying into and out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Qantas currently operates out of Terminals 3 and 4, and Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).

Effective October 1, Qantas arrival and departure operations will be rearranged in preparation for the arrival of the new A380 aircraft.

All Qantas A380 services will be operated from TBIT, which has undergone major enhancements in anticipation of the first arrival of very large aircraft like the A380. While other Qantas flights will be affected by the terminal changes, the code share services to Fiji, Mexico and Tahiti will remain unaffected.

"As the first airline to bring the A380 to Los Angeles International Airport, we have carefully reviewed our entire operational requirements and made the necessary adjustments to ensure a smooth transition for our passengers," said Wally R. Mariani, Qantas Airways senior executive vice president, The Americas and Pacific.

Effective next month, TBIT will accommodate all non-stop flights between Sydney, Melbourne and New York, while Terminal 4 will be used for flights between Brisbane and Auckland/Melbourne.

Qantas says passengers arriving at LAX Terminal 4, who are traveling to Sydney or Melbourne or New York, can easily and conveniently transfer to TBIT by way of a complimentary dedicated shuttle service departing from Gate 44. The shuttle is for same-day Qantas connecting passengers and operates daily from 4:00 pm to midnight... and keeps passengers airside, eliminating the need for repeat security screening.

For other connections, an inter-terminal bus provides free transportation between all LAX terminals on a regular basis, which can be accessed from the center island on the Arrivals level from all terminals.
