Westfield to open seven new retail concepts at LAX T3

unnamed (1)Westfield has announced it is opening seven new dining and retail outlets at Delta’s Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport as part of the airport’s overall modernization program.

The new retail and dining collection covers more than 5,000 square feet including a multi-unit quick service food court, a bar, two travel essentials and one specialty retail unit. The renovations at Terminal 3 are expected to be completed by end of 2017.

The new retail stores, operated by Hudson Group, will sell a broad array of accessories, electronics and travel essentials at Moshi, Hudson LAXpress and Soundstage by Hudson.

“Hudson Group and Dufry are proud to bring fresh and exciting improvements to LAX Terminal 3, which will further transform the travel experience for airport customers in L.A.,” said Joseph DiDomizio, President & CEO, Hudson Group & Division CEO North America, Dufry.

“We’ve partnered with Westfield and Los Angeles World Airports for many years in Terminals 3, 6 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal, and we’re proud to expand our partnerships with one of the country’s busiest airports.”

The new concepts also include four LA-based restaurants: Ashland Hill, earthbar, Panda Express and The Parlor. Ashland Hill and The Parlor are both airport firsts.

“These exciting local brands will give travelers a taste of LA and provide more food & beverage

and retail options in Terminal 3 following our move at LAX,” said Rob Walker, Delta’s Managing Director-LAX Redevelopment. “Our goal is to create the best air-port experience in LA, and we intend to make that happen in partnership with LAWA and Westfield.”

The dining collection is operated by Areas, a long-term partner with Westfield at LAX.

“Together we have brought travelers iconic local brands that bring a taste of Los Angeles into the airport,” said Xavier Rabell, CEO, Areas in the United States.

Following the completion of Terminals 2 and 6 by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and Westfield in 2016, and the Tom Bradley International Terminal in

2013, the addition of a new retail and dining collection is the first step in the refresh of Terminal 3.

“It all starts with the travelers,” said Robert Van Snik, Senior Vice President, Westfield. “They crave the right mix of shops and restaurants in the airport. And following the Delta terminal relocation, we knew that the brands coming into Terminal 3 had to be local, con-temporary and authentic. The key is customization. We’re so excited about the new T3 brands and we know Delta travelers will be too!”

In partnership with the city of Los Angeles and LAWA, Westfield is transforming more than 154,000 square feet at LAX to enhance the customer experience at Terminals 1, 2, 3, 6 and Tom Bradley International Terminal.
