Project Desctiption

The LAX West Aircraft Maintenance Area Project consists of 84 acres in the southwestern portion of the airfield and develops approximately 68 acres of the 84 acres with taxiways and aircraft parking apron areas, maintenance hangars, employee parking, service roads, and ancillary facilities (i.e., related storage, equipment and facilities). The Project accommodates up to 10 Airplane Design Group (ADG) VI aircraft, such as the Airbus A380, or a mix of smaller aircraft on the site. The Project does not increase passenger or gate capacity or flights and/or aircraft operations at LAX, but does consolidate, relocate, and modernize some existing maintenance facilities and activities.
