Transferring within and between terminals

There are several options for transferring between terminals at LAX.

Terminals 4 and 6 are linked airside by an underground walkway.

There is also an airside transfer bus that runs from Terminal 4 to Terminal 6, the American Eagle Regional Terminal and Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) for customers connecting onto Qantas services. 

To walk to TBIT for an international departure after arriving on a domestic flight, exit Terminal 4 (for American Airlines arrivals) or Terminal 6 (for US Airways arrivals) and turn left.

From an international flight (arrivals on British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN or Qantas) to a domestic flight – clear immigration and customs, and recheck your baggage at the baggage recheck area. For both Terminal 4 and Terminal 6 connections, exit TBIT and turn right.

Walking is the fastest way to transfer between terminals, however you can also use the LAX Airport Shuttle A terminal transfer bus, which is available on the arrivals lower ground level.
