The history of Los Angeles International Airport began in 1928 when the Los Angeles City Council selected land of 640 acres in a southern part of the neighborhood – Westchester, to build an airport for Los Angeles. The fields were converted to dirt landing strips and named after William W. Mines, as Mines Field – the real estate agent who managed to arrange the deal.
We are working with other airports as well as with both local and national public health agencies, the FAA and national and regional task forces to continuously evaluate what measures can be made to keep our passengers safe and healthy.
Showers – LAX does not offer shower facilities for the general travelling public. There are a few lounges that have showers and the USO offers showers to military members. [ see Airport Lounges above ]
