The Tom Bradley International Terminal

A progress report on the current LAX airport improvement program is scheduled on Tuesday, April 28, at 10 a.m. at the Flight Path Museum in the LAX Imperial Terminal, 6661 W. Imperial Hwy., Los Angeles.  Tim Ihle of the Los Angeles World Airports development staff will provide a status update on upgrades to airline passenger facilities, ground transportation and other major construction projects underway or planned at the airport.

Recent major expansion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal is but one step in the airport’s overall improvement program, according to Nancy Niles, Flight Path president. “Tim Ihle’s presentation will bring us a complete picture of what will happen in the next few years to bring LAX to a higher standard of passenger service,” said Niles. “Tim is an excellent speaker. His two previous presentations as part of our Speaker Series have been well attended and extremely informative.”
.
Speaker Series programs are open to the public, with time allotted at the end of each program for questions from the audience. Admission and parking are free.  Flight Path is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The museum and learning center is operated by nonprofit Flight Path in cooperation with Los Angeles World Airports, the City agency which operates Los Angeles International Airport.
