Westfield Has Designs on LAX’s Future

By Business Journal Staff Friday, February 5, 2016

The Sydney Morning Herald reported Friday that global retail giant Westfield has invested close to $100 million in the Los Angeles International Airport as part of its transformation of transport hubs across North America.

The opening of the revamped Terminal 2 is part of Westfield's contract for the five terminals at the airport. Once completed the airport will have been given a $8.5 billion facelift to cater for the more than 75 million passengers that pass through.

“Los Angeles World Airports had a strong vision,” said Keith Kaplan, Westfield's vice president at LAX. “They wanted more than a concessions refresh, they wanted to truly transform the entire customer journey at Terminal 2 from the moment you clear security. Thanks to our long term partnership and collaboration with all the stakeholders, everybody wins, the city of Los Angeles, the airport, the airlines and the customers.”
