On Thursday (October 7, 2021), Hawaiian Airlines announced that they will be moving from Terminal 5 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Terminal B, also known as the Tom Bradley International Terminal, effective Tuesday, October 12, 2021. Hawaiian’s guests will now enjoy a modern and comfortable facility featuring a spacious gate area as well as more amenities and expanded dining and shopping options. Hawaiian currently offers six daily flights between LAX and the Hawaiian Islands, including three daily flights to Honolulu, and daily service to Kahului (Maui), Kona (on the Island of Hawai’i), and Līhu‘e (Kaua’i).


In Thursday’s announcement, Hawaiian Airlines’ Vice President of Airport Operations, Jeff Helfrick, said,


“We appreciate the support of Los Angeles World Airports in our relocation to Terminal B, which will provide our guests a superior experience whether they are beginning their Hawai‘i vacation or returning home.”


Also commenting on the terminal change, Los Angeles World Airports’ CEO, Justin Erbacci, said,


“When Hawaiian Airlines moves into its new home at the West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal, passengers will enjoy one of the most modern and technologically advanced airport facilities in the world. LAX became Hawaiian Airlines’ first U.S. mainland destination more than 35 years ago, and we look forward to continuing our long relationship connecting Hawaii with Southern California.”


Hawaiian Airlines recommends that guests traveling to Hawai’i from LAX set aside approximately 15 minutes to travel from the third floor check-in counters in the Tom Bradley Terminal to their West Gates via an underground walkway. Guests arriving at LAX will retrieve their checked bags at the first floor baggage claim. Customers can also connect between the West Gates and Terminals 4-8 through a sterile corridor without having to clear additional security.


Committed to connecting guests with aloha, Hawaiian Airlines offers complimentary meals on all transpacific routes, and the convenience of no change fees on Main Cabin and Premium Cabin bookings. Additionally, HawaiianMiles loyalty members enjoy the flexibility of miles that never expire.
