Los Angeles International Airport will look a little different Tuesday as Alaska Airlines moves into a new space, and other airlines are switching terminals too.
Alaska moves from Terminal 3 into a $271-million renovated space in Terminal 6 that includes a bigger lobby, more ticket kiosks and bag-drop areas, six international gates and electrical outlets on half of the seats in the gate area. ("No more sitting on dirty carpeting in the corner," the airline's statement promises.) It also has a new Board Room lounge for club members.
Other airlines are on the move as well. Spirit Airlines moved from Terminal 6 to Terminal 3 on Friday; Great Lakes Airlines will move from Terminal 6 to Terminal 7 on Tuesday; and AirTran Airways will move in April from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1, where parent company Southwest Airlines operates.
Don't worry if you forget where you're going; airport signage will be changed Tuesday to reflect the new locations for those moving on that date.
