APM Terminals is based in the Hague, Netherlands, and operates the Port of L.A.’s largest container terminal, the 484-acre Pier 400. The proposed fine is subject to a 30-day public comment period ending Aug. 30.

More on Horizon

Despite passenger counts down by 10 percent at Los Angeles International Airport and travelers cutting back on leisure trips, Horizon Air’s upcoming winter business looks like it’s heating up with the addition of a second flight to the Mammoth Lakes resort area.

Company officials announced the addition last week, saying the route was popular in its inaugural year last winter among travelers who preferred the 70-minute flight over the five-hour drive from Los Angeles.

The company, which is based in Seattle, will run its second flight from LAX from Dec. 17 through the end of April. Fares are on sale now and start at $69.

Spotting Rivalry

Bruins and Trojans who use Parking Spot lots to leave their cars when flying out of LAX might want to make sure they choose the right facility: The company’s latest shuttles are decorated with red for USC and blue for UCLA and feature the rival university logos.

Two UCLA shuttles leave from the Century Boulevard lot and two USC vans are based at the Sepulveda Boulevard site.

The company’s signature dots remain on the new vans.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the passion of one of the city’s most heralded sports traditions,” said Mark Wildman, vice president of marketing for Parking Spot.

The new shuttles will run on compressed natural gas, the first in the company’s LAX fleet.
