The new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles' LAX Airport will had a grand opening yesterday.
The US$1.9 billion (S$2.36 billion) terminal will create a new iconic feature for Los Angeles, with its architectural design, world-class dining and retail facilities and other passenger features.
The opening will conclude Phase I of construction, with nine of 18 new aircraft boarding gates built to accommodate larger, new-generation aircraft such as the Airbus 380 and Boeing 747-8.
Phase II of the project includes new boarding bridges and aircraft aprons, and upgraded federal customs and immigration inspection areas by early 2015.
