The Air New Zealand travel experience will be improved early next year when the airline relocates to the new Tom Bradley International Terminal.
After almost two decades based in Terminal 2, the airlines move to the new Tom Bradley terminal will offer its customers access to an improved 180,000 square feet of dining, shopping, retail and passengers amenities while in transit.
Air New Zealand has also been appointed to design and operate a brand new Star Alliance lounge in the terminal.
The new lounge will be shared with eight Star Alliance partner airlines that will also operate out of the Tom Bradley terminal including Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines and Swiss Air.
Air New Zealand general manager Americas Roger Poulton said the new facilities would greatly add to the overall passenger experience when travelling via Los Angeles.
The new terminal facilities have been designed to accommodate 30% more passengers an hour, so our customers can look forward to faster boarding and disembarking, more efficient customs and immigration processing and much better food and retail experience, Mr Poulton said.
Mr Poulton said the new lounge will be three times the size of the existing one and will include a bar area and private library space for some peace and quiet.
A special feature will be the outdoor terrace with views over the northern runway towards the Hollywood hills.
