Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) officials have announced the partial closure of the north side lower arrivals level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal through January 21st, 2010.

The closure is due to the scheduled renovation of the “Meet and Greet” area. Travelers will not have access to both the north patio door and the elevators in this area.

This area is currently occupied by Mexicana Airlines ticketing operations, which relocated to the departures lobby on September 10th.

The Bradley Terminal arrivals area is currently undergoing a $723.5-million renovation to improve the passenger experience and provide enhancements that have been missing upon arrival to LAX, airport officials say. Renovations include new glass paneling, curved LED (light emitting-diode) media and entertainment zones and modern storefronts.
