12 Photos from LAX’s Bustling Airfield
There is hardly a quiet day at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The world’s fourth busiest airport by passengers numbers served 84,557,968 customers in 2017 alone.
LAX is no stranger to traffic diversity either. With a glance over at the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT), it is easy to spot tails from multiple nations represented in one place. From regional jets to Airbus A380s, LAX is no stranger to a wide array of traffic.
In addition to passenger numbers in the millions, LAX reported a total of 700,362 aircraft movements in 2017. In addition to passenger traffic, the airport sees plenty of cargo movement as well, hauling 2,279,878 tons of freight last year alone.
Arriving at LAX, it’s not uncommon to hold out for a gate at one of the airport’s nine passenger terminals. The airfield itself, unlike some of the terminals, is built to accommodate heavy traffic flow featuring four parallel runways.
AirlineGeeks was given a tour of LAX’s airfield. As expected, there was no shortage of traffic, including jets from all around the globe.
