DELTA AIR LINES
LAX - TERMINAL 2/3
Demolition has officially started on Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport, commencing the first phase of construction on the $1.86 billion Delta Sky Way project.
Delta employees along with representatives from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), contractor Hensel Phelps, and design firms Gensler and Arup gathered for a celebratory event to mark the milestone in the project, which will modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B).
The event was held in an area of the terminal that is now closed to the public as construction gets underway and included a ceremonial wall demolition. Attendees also signed a steel girder that will be placed in the final facility.
Delta leaders, including Mary Loeffelholz, vice president – LAX Corporate Real Estate; John Fechushak, vice president – LAX Operations; and Scott Santoro, vice president – Los Angeles and West Sales; were in attendance and recognized the airline's LA-based employees for the role they play in taking care of customers during the construction and bringing the final facility to life.
"Delta is investing $1.86 billion to create the airport facility our customers, employees and this city deserve and that will serve Angelenos for decades to come," Loeffelholz said. "As demolition commences, it's important to recognize that our employees are critical to the success of this project. They take care of our customers each day and will continue to have our customers' backs during construction."
