News & Advisories


 

Our Progress at LAX

Due to the modernization of our terminals at LAX, your bag drop terminal could differ from your departure terminal. Please read on for more helpful information to keep in mind when flying from LAX.



Tips & Tools To Assist You

CHECKING BAGS? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

When traveling from LAX directly to Atlanta, Detroit, Hawaii, Minneapolis, New York-JFK, Washington D.C. or any Delta-operated international destination, you must check bags at Terminal 2 before proceeding to your departure terminal/gate. For all other Delta-operated domestic destinations, bags must be checked at LAX Terminal 3. See Details

TERMINAL B DEPARTURES

Delta check-in and kiosks are not available in Terminal B. For Delta-operated flights departing from Terminal B, you must already have your printed or electronic boarding pass and dropped checked bags at Terminal 2 or Terminal 3 before arriving at Terminal B.

CARRYING ON ONLY?

Proceed directly to your departure terminal if you will already have your printed or electronic boarding pass.  

TERMINAL B TRANSFERS

Upon arriving at LAX, proceed through Passport Control then Baggage Claim and Customs. Then, follow the signs for connecting flights to re-check bags for your next flight and proceed to the security checkpoint of your departure terminal.

  • TIP: Download the latest Fly Delta app for interactive LAX maps to navigate through each terminal, search for restaurants or gates, see estimated walk time or get turn-by-turn walking directions and up-to-the-minute information about your gate and terminal.
  • TIP: Terminal buses are available for faster connections between terminals. Bus gates are located beyond the security checkpoint at gate 22A in Terminal 2 and at gate 35P in Terminal 3. To save time, use terminal buses instead of exiting the terminal secure area. Exiting the secure area requires an additional security screening to reach your gate.
  • TIP: To exit the airport loop road faster, stay to the far left and make a left turn on the shortcut access road just past Terminal 2 and follow the signs for Airport Exit. See Details.
