Terminal 3 Security Screening Checkpoint to Relocate to Prepare for Delta Sky Way at LAX Construction   

As Delta prepares for the upcoming construction of the Delta Sky Way at LAX, security screening in Terminal 3 has been relocated to level one. There is no change to the security screening process in Terminal 2.

The Terminal 3 security screening relocation will occur in phases. As a new lane opens at the level one checkpoint, a lane will also be closed at the level three checkpoint. The full relocation is expected to be complete in October, and the security screening checkpoint in Terminal 3 will remain on level one until the first phase of construction is complete in January 2021.

While the process for arriving at the airport and checking in for a flight will remain the same following the relocation, customers are encouraged to take the following actions for a more efficient experience:

  • Enter the airport from the departures/ticketing level. With the relocation of the security screening checkpoint in Terminal 3, it’s important that all customers with flights departing from Terminal 3 arrive to the airport and enter the security screening queue on the departures level. From there, airport employees will direct customers to their respective screening lanes, including TSA Pre-Check, CLEAR and Sky Priority.
  • Download the Fly Delta App. The app gives customers access to the latest terminal and gate information and the industry's most innovative airport wayfinding maps, which guides customers with turn-by-turn walking directions to their next gate, a restaurant or baggage claim.
  • Check terminal and gate information prior to arriving at LAX. Delta customers should use the Fly Delta app or delta.com to confirm their bag drop terminal, which could be different from their departure terminal, and reconfirm gate information upon arrival at the airport.
  • Arrive early. Delta recommends arriving two hours prior to domestic departures and three hours prior to international departures.
  • Need help? Ask! Delta’s airport customer service team is always available to answer questions.

The relocation of the security screening checkpoint is part of a series of projects that have been completed over the last two years to enable the larger demolition and construction of the $1.86 billion Delta Sky Way at LAX project, which will modernize, upgrade and connect Terminals 2, 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B).
