A gigantic Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) renovation project at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) was completed on schedule as city mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa and other dignitaries marked the event at a ceremony on Wednesday.

"This renovation project improves the travelers' experience as they pass through LAX, while enhancing passenger safety by reducing congestion in the airline check-in lobbies and on the curbside," Villaraigosa said.

"The upgrades also improve customer service so travelers' experiences in our great city will be positive ones that will make them want to return."

The 737-million-dollar project, which was started in February 2007, was designed to make traveling through the terminal safer, faster and more convenient to passengers, and provide a Southern California welcome to arriving international visitors. The work was completed on time and under its 755-million-dollar budget.

Aside from the major interior renovations to airline check-in and passenger arrival (meet-and-greet) lobbies,customs and immigration arrivals hall,arrivals corridors and in-line baggage screening system, the terminal also incorporated improved accessibility for passengers with disabilities, upgraded utilities, energy-efficient lighting and fire-and-life safety systems.
