KLAX 2018 (or KLAX version 3) depicts the Los Angeles International Airport as it exists in the winter of 2018. The new scenery was rebuilt almost entirely from scratch and incorporates all significant changes that have taken place since we published the original KLAX v1 scenery in 2011. Highlights include the new Tom Bradley International terminal (TBIT) concourse, the newly overhauled Terminal 1, all major additions and improvements completed at Terminals 4 and 7 and the renovated American Airlines remote terminal. KLAX 2018 also incorporates all major changes in the runway and taxiway layout including extensions to runways 6R/24L and 7L/25R along with the corresponding access taxiways plus the new taxiways R, T and S connecting the north and south fields. We also added the new maintenance area at the west end of the field.
With the exception of the parking structures within the terminal complex and the buildings along Century Blvd, all gmax models are 100% new. (Note: the KLAX v2 free upgrade published in 2015 included a significant part of the new model for the international terminal included in this scenery.) The new models feature high-resolution textures throughout and an unprecedented level of three-dimensional detail designed to take advantage of the superior shadow rendering capabilities of Prepar3D.
In 2017, LAX underwent the most extensive airline terminal relocation in the history of civil aviation and our new scenery incorporates all those changes. The airline shuffle responded to both the many mergers of the last few years and the desire of some major airlines to consolidate and enhance their operations at what is currently the US busiest airport by number of international passengers and the third busiest by number of passengers overall.
Terminal 1 is now used by Southwest Airlines exclusively and underwent a complete overhaul resulting in an almost entirely new facility. In 2017 Delta Airlines took over Terminals 2 and 3 with intending to refurbish and interconnect them thus creating a major hub in the west coast. Delta’s allies including Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Australia, Aeromexico and WestJet also use Terminal 2. American Airlines continues to occupy Terminal 4 and added four gates in Terminal 5. In addition, Gate 52 connects T5, via bus service, to the remote terminal from which Compass Airlines operates most regional routes for American. American also moved most of their international operations to the TBIT taking advantage of the new T4 – TBIT connector. Hawaiian, JetBlue, Allegiant and Spirit also use Terminal 5. Alaska Airlines consolidated its operations at the newly renovated Terminal 6, sharing three of its gates with Air Canada. United Airlines remained in Terminals 7 and 8. Recent enhancements to terminal 7 include a new structure housing the airline’s club and other passenger amenities.
LAX is in the midst of a multibillion dollar renovation and enhancement project that will soon add a mid-field concourse to the TBIT and a people mover connecting the terminal complex to new, remote consolidated car rental and multimodal transportation facilities. In addition, Delta and American have committed more than a billion dollars each to renovate and enhance Terminals 2 /3 and 4/5 respectively. The project also includes an overhauled TBIT and new connectors between T1 – T2 and T3 – TBIT eventually creating a fully integrated terminal complex.
