Sunday 07 Sep 2008 4:33pm

Refurbishments are now in progress at Los Angeles International Airport's (LAX) to accommodate the special requirements of Australian airline Qantas' new Airbus A380 service in preparation for its launch on 20 October. Qantas services at LAX presently depart from the Terminal 3 and Terminal 4. All of Qantas' arrivals and departures will be diverted from 1 October 2008 in order for preparations to be made for the A380's arrival. All of Qantas' A380 services will be handled at the TBIT after its launch. The planned terminal changes will have an impact on existing Qantas services, although code share services to Fiji, Mexico and Tahiti will be unaffected. Wally R. Mariani, Qantas' senior executive vice president for the Americas and the Pacific said: 'As the first airline to bring the A380 to Los Angeles International Airport, we have carefully reviewed our entire operational requirements and made the necessary adjustments to ensure a smooth transition for our passengers. ' Mr Mariani explained adjustments that take affect from 1 October. All passengers bound for New York, Melbourne or Sydney who arrive at Terminal 4 will be able to take a complimentary shuttle to the TBIT departing from Gate 44. This shuttle service will operate from 4pm until midnight. Passengers using the shuttle service will not need to go through the repeat screening they would otherwise have to.
