Airport operator Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is partnering with retail developer Westfield to open seven new retail and restaurant locations at Delta Terminal 3 (T3) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.
The new retail and dining collection will offer seven locations across more than 5,000ft² with destinations including a multi-unit quick service food court, two travel essentials and one specialty retail unit. The collection also comprises four LA-based restaurants, including Ashland Hill and The Parlor. The refresh of T3 is expected to be completed by end of 2017.
Deborah Flint, CEO of LAWA, said, “We’re raising the bar for what’s possible at an airport. LAWA and Westfield will provide passengers a special experience that allows them to sample the best of Los Angeles (LA) food and drink, unique shops and modern amenities. Soon they will be able to find all that and more in T3.”
The new retail ventures, operated by Hudson Group, include Moshi, Hudson LAXpress and Soundstage by Hudson. The collection includes a broad array of accessories, electronics and travel essentials that will enhance the experience for travelers flying through T3.
Joseph DiDomizio, president and CEO, Hudson Group, and division CEO North America, Dufry, said, “Hudson Group and Dufry are proud to bring fresh and exciting improvements to LAX Terminal 3, which will further transform the travel experience for airport customers in LA. We’ve partnered with Westfield and Los Angeles World Airports for many years in Terminals 3, 6 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal, and we’re proud to expand our partnerships with one of the country’s busiest airports.”
The full roster of new additions includes Ashland Hill, earthbar, Hudson LAXpress, Moshi, Panda Express, Soundstage by Hudson, and The Parlor.
Robert Van Snik, senior vice president, Westfield, said, “It all starts with the travelers. They crave the right mix of shops and restaurants in the airport. Following the Delta terminal relocation, we knew that the brands coming into T 3 had to be local, contemporary and authentic. The key is customization. We’re so excited about the new T3 brands and we know Delta travelers will be too.”
