Parking LAX airport


Pickup or return by family/friends

Drop off passengers: For the health and safety of all, the airport is currently closed to everyone except those with valid tickets, persons assisting ticketed passengers and airport staff. Passengers can be dropped off at the terminals in the upper level/departures area.

Pickup: 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. The cell phone lot is located on 96th Street east of Sepulveda Blvd, a quarter mile west of the 96th Street bridge entrance to the LAX passenger terminal area. The driver must not leave the vehicle at any time. Otherwise, no commercial vehicles or shuttle service vehicles are allowed.
