Foreign and domestic crowds flying in for the Olympics were no problem for the Los Angeles Airport (LAX), thanks to the expansion and improvements completed a month earlier. LAX more than doubled its terminal space, increased its central terminal capacity by 60% and completed major airfield rehab. The Los Angeles Department of Airports built international and domestic terminals, a roadway to serve them and new cargo handling facilities. The agency expanded its utility plant and parking facilities, and made runway and taxiway improvements. LAX was the first major airport in the U. S. to undertake an expansion of this size.
