The Board of Airport Commissioners Thursday approved concession and lease agreements with seven rental car companies representing 14 brands that will relocate to the new Los Angeles International Airport Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility when it opens in 2023.
"One of our goals at LAX is to provide a more convenient, efficient, and sustainable experience," said Sean Burton, president of the BOAC.
"Today's lease agreements ensure that our guests will have access to some of the most recognizable brands in the rental car industry in one easily accessible location."
The new facility will be part of the $5.5 billion Landside Access Modernization Program that aims to bring together more than 20 car rental offices into a central location and feature a 2.25-mile Automated People Mover to eliminate the need for rental car courtesy vehicles to enter the central terminal area and reduce the number of autos driving in and out of the airport by an estimated 3,200 each day.
