Terminal 4 Connector to streamline process for passengers catching connecting flights at LAX
The Terminal 4 Connector saves valuable time by giving travellers a direct, post-security route between terminals. Previously, passengers needed to exit one terminal and re-enter another through federal security screening to catch their connecting flights.
The new facility enables domestic passengers arriving at the south side terminals to catch international connecting flights at TBIT without going back through TSA security. It gives international passengers arriving at TBIT — who, by law, must rescreen their bags once they have cleared customs — an expedited security screening area that connects directly with the south side terminal concourses.
The opening of the Terminal 4 connector is a significant milestone in the effort to create post-security connections between all LAX terminals. Future plans include another connector between TBIT and Terminal 3, and walkways between Terminals 1, 2 and 3.
“The Terminal 4 Connector will make international travel easier and more seamless for millions of passengers, and help us continue to expand our global reach,” said Mayor Garcetti.
