American Airlines customers at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will enjoy an improved travel experience when the city’s premier airline begins operations in Terminal 6, further expanding American’s commitment to the greater Los Angeles area.
With the last departure of the night on Wednesday, Nov. 5, American flights operated by US Airways will end operations at Terminal 3. All US Airways ticketing and check-in, gates, baggage and customer service operations will begin at Terminal 6 the morning of Nov. 6.

Shuttle service is also available to Terminal 4 and the Remote Terminal for American Eagle flights.
“Our expansion into Terminal 6 is the latest in our continued investment in the premier travel experience at LAX,” said J.C Liscano, American’s Managing Director of LAX. “Larger, updated facilities and closer, easier connections between terminals will improve our customers’ experience and give us more room to grow. We’ve added some new destinations out of LAX, and we’re proud of the exclusive services we provide our most loyal customers.”
