Recommendations after arriving at Los Angeles airport (LAX)

  1. Carry on luggage

    Don't forget your personal belongings from the aircraft.

  2. Connecting Flights

    In case you expect a connecting flight and arrive in the early hours, the airport has  24-hour cafe options. If your are coming from another country and the connecting flight is domestic, you must collect your checked baggage (in case you have checked baggage) and do migrations. Other wise if your final destination is outside the United States, you don't need to do so. See connection between the terminals

  3. Checked baggage

    If Los Angeles airport is your final destination and you have checked luggage, go to the baggage claim area and look for the carousel that corresponds to your flight. In some cases there may be two flights sharing the same carousel. If your luggage is missing, go to your airline counter or ask for help to the airport staff.

  4. Migrations

    Follow the signals to pass migration control. If you are a foreigner, depending on your nationality, you will need to present a passport and visa (as applicable) and hotel reservation or address and phone number and name of the person where you will stay. Get ready for some questions that may be asked (they do not always ask) and just answer what they ask without giving additional explanations that may compromise you.

  5. Pickup passengers

    Passengers may be picked up at the outside curbside on the lower level/arrivals level outside of baggage claim. If you are picking up a passenger, use the LAX Cell Phone Waiting Lot, open 24 hours a day, where motorists meeting arriving passengers can wait free of charge until passengers call to say they are ready to be picked up.

    If you are picking up a passenger comming from Tom Bradley International, you can use the Terminal B pickup area, located on the lower level of Parking Structure 3 and is free to use.

  6. Arrivals public hall

    If Los Angeles is your final destination, when you arrive in the public area, if a private driver is waiting for you, they will most certainly have a sign and your name.
