The Private Suite Experience LAX airport

A new terminal called The Private Suite opened at Los Angeles International Airport in late 2017. The Suite accommodates travellers flying on one of the 70 commercial airlines operating at LAX.


What is The Private Suite?

The Private Suite is a newly-built private terminal — a new gate into LAX that’s far from the traffic surrounding the airport. Members of The Private Suite don’t wait in crowded lines because private TSA screening is done right in our building. Members don’t walk down long crowded concourses, or line up at ticket counters and boarding gates. They don’t deal with baggage.


Where is it located? 

Members spend their pre-flight time in totally private suites, each with its own bathroom, its own food-service pantry, a two-person daybed, and a runway view of aircraft landing and taking off. When it’s time to board, Private Suite members are driven across the tarmac, Head-of-State style, directly to their aircraft.


What are the benefits?

Depending upon the time of day, the season, the weather, and traffic delays on the ground or in the air, excursions through LAX can be stressful and unpredictable. It typically takes 2200 footsteps from car seat to plane seat. For members of The Private Suite, it’s 70 footsteps.


How does it work?

A team of eight people is assigned to each member of The Private Suite:

1: One gets members securely into our gated compound
2: Another escorts members to their suites
3 & 4: Two others manage any special service requests
5: Another escorts members through private TSA screening and into one of our runway-side BMW 7 Series sedans
6: Another drives members across the tarmac to their aircraft
7: Another serves as advance person waiting at the jet-bridge to escort members to the aircraft door
8: An unseen eighth person deals with the luggage
(The process is reversed when members arrive into LAX)
