Airlines continuing their move to new terminals at Los Angeles International Airport experienced smooth sailing Sunday night, airport officials said.
Three airlines relocated — Spirit moved from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5, and Avianca and Interjet made their switch from Terminal 2 to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Delta Airlines continued its multi-day move to relocate from Terminals 5 and 6 across the airport to Terminals 2 and 3. Sunday night, Delta moved three gates from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2.
Fifteen airlines have switched to new digs around the airport since Friday when the transition began. The relocations have gone largely without issue, said Mary Grady, public relations director for Los Angeles World Airports, which operates LAX.
No flights have been delayed because of the moves, said Fredrick Badlissi, an airport spokesman.
Badlissi added that, while there’s no way to guarantee that the smooth operations will continue into Tuesday night’s move, airport staff are working to prevent any issues.
“We can’t predict the future, but there’s been a lot of preparation and a lot of time has been spent planning and we’re going to do the best we can,” he said.

Third-party sites like FlightAware or FlightStats haven’t fully updated to include the terminal changes for airlines, and that’s caused some passengers to end up in the wrong part of the airport ahead of their flights, Grady said.
The airport has plenty of staff on hand at to direct passengers to their correct terminals, and they’ll be updating signs throughout LAX to reflect the correct location of the airlines that moved, said Charles Pannunzio, spokesman for LAWA.
Officials still recommend that travelers check directly with their airline for flight locations before they head to the airport. Several more airlines will finish moving Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Once the relocations are complete, a total of 21 airlines will have moved to new terminals over the past several months to accommodate Delta’s shift within the airport.
