Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the US has opened a new connector linking its south-side terminals with Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).

Built with an investment of $148m, the new Terminal 4 connector will enable passengers to reach their connecting flights more quickly.

Developed as a part of a $14bn LAX modernisation plan, the connector provides a direct and post-security route between terminals and also speeds up security screening procedures for foreign passengers arriving at TBIT.

"The Terminal 4 Connector will make international travel easier and more seamless for millions of passengers."

In 2015, TBIT and LAX’s south-side terminals jointly handled 52.3 million passengers, representing around 70% of all passengers travelling through the airport.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said: “LAX is one of the driving forces of our economy, supporting more than 600,000 jobs — that’s why we’re investing $14bn right now to make it one of the world’s premier airports.

“The Terminal 4 Connector will make international travel easier and more seamless for millions of passengers, and help us continue to expand our global reach.”

LAX said that its $14bn modernisation plans includes an airport rail system, a new rental car facility and redecoration for eight of the airport’s nine terminals.

The plan is expected to create over 120,000 local jobs and add more than $20bn to the economy.

LAX currently provides 742 daily non-stop flights to 101 cities in the US.

The airport aims to add another connector between TBIT and Terminal 3, and walkways between terminals 1, 2 and 3 in the future.
