RBR Staff Writer Published 16 April 2012

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has revealed its plans to open 60 new shopping and dining options at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in 2012.

The outlets, located across LAX terminals four, five, seven and eight, follow the first phase in a three-year program to revitalize the airport's concession program and part of the airport's overall LAneXt modernization program, according to DFNIonline.

The first store was unveiled on 2 April in United Airlines T7. The LA fashion boutique Kitson offer ranges from trendy inexpensive items to high-end clothing and accessories.

Subsequently, the first of the new food & beverage concessions will be Skewers by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, in Delta Airlines T5, and a Wolfgang Express in T7.

The remaining outlets will be located in T4 (American Airlines); T5 (Delta Air Lines); T7 (United Airlines): T8 (United Airlines).

Phase 2 of the LAX concessions revitalization program, which began in 2011 January, is a 17-year Terminal Commercial ManagerConcessions Agreement with Westfield Concession Management, to develop, lease and manage food-and-beverage, retail, specialty retail and certain other passenger services at LAX.

In addition, Aer Rianta International (ARI) of Ireland has partnered with Korean travel retailer The Shilla Duty Free to bid for the duty-free retail contract at the airport.

The winner will operate in excess of 37,000ft²of commercial space across eight terminals, the largest being the Tom Bradley international terminal comprising around 25,000ft²as part of a major construction project that will transfer the duty-free area to a post-passenger security position, the website reported.
