New Customs Area LAX - Construction Alert
Issued: 17Sep13

On September 18, 2013 LAX will open a new Customs area in the new Bradley West Terminal. On this same date, the tunnel between American’s terminal (T4) and the International Customs facility will close. As a result of the closure, Gate 41 and Gate 43 in Terminal 4 will no longer be used for international arrivals and in most cases, departures. This construction is expected to last approximately 18 months.

  • All International arrivals will arrive at a remote terminal and take a bus to clear customs at Bradley West Terminal.
  • All outbound customers who will be utilizing a remote terminal departure gate, will be boarded from Gate 45 in American’s main terminal (regardless of International/Domestic)
  • The remote location is approximately 2 ½ miles from the main terminal and takes approximately 10 minutes to get to/from
  • Customers will be boarded from AA Gate 45 starting 45 minutes prior to departure
  • Last bus will depart 20 min before departure

Please advise customers to please allow extra time when departing LAX for an international or domestic flight.
