Renovation of LAX's Alaska Airlines terminal was recently completed.
Los Angeles International Airport will mark a milestone in its modernization program this morning by celebrating a $238-million renovation of one of its aging passenger terminals.

The recently completed extensive remodel of the Alaska Airlines facility includes high-tech passenger ticketing and bag check kiosks as well as new lounges and expanded boarding areas.

The upgrade of Terminal 6 is part of a $4.1-billion package of airport improvements that include the expansion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, new taxiways and a rebuilt central utility plant to supply heating and air conditioning to the terminal complex.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, City Councilman Bill Rosendahl and airport officials will join Alaska Chief Executive Bill Ayer for dedication ceremonies at the terminal.
