As the top rated car provider at Southern California airports, we can guarantee professional and timely services. Ever since we were established over fifteen years ago, we have served airports and communities throughout the Greater L.A. Area and the SoCal region. In addition to L.A.X., we serve all smaller regional airports including Burbank, Camarillo, Santa Barbara, Big Bear, Ontario, John Wayne, and many more. With longer checkpoint waiting lines and TSA machines than ever before, spending time at the airport is a necessity. But why not make the best of it? We know Southern California airports better than anyone and serve all airports on a daily basis. With close to 75 million annual travelers per year, Los Angeles International has become the fifth busiest airport in the world with flights to over 180 destinations worldwide. With over 8,000 parking spots and 48,000 employees, finding a parking space here can be a challenge. Especially if travel time, congested traffic and few public parking options are taken into the equation. Why not skip the hazards of parking and congestion? Booking an LAX limousine service can be the best decision you have made in a long time.
First established as a local airport in the late 1920’s, it has a remarkable and interesting history. The first building to be erected, Hangar Number 1, was built in 1929 and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). It was simply known as the Mines Field until its name change to L.A. Municipal Airport in 1930. Mines Field refers to the area’s first real estate developer, William Mines. The municipal airport became particularly busy in the years following World War II, and began its first international flights in the early 1950’s. It gained its current name in 1949, and because airports were forced to have three letters and not just two, the airport code became LAX with the X as a letter to fill in the blank. Many do not realize, but an LA limo passenger recently made us aware that there are numerous places with acronym LAX in the Greater L.A. Area. First and foremost, there is of course the airport, which most people will refer to when talking about L.A.X., but it is also the official name for the L.A. Union Station and the San Pedro’ Port of L.A. as well. Although unfortunate, the most iconic landmark – the Theme Building’s Encounter Restaurant – is currently closed. Many tourists and others renting airport sedans from us love to photograph and visit the tower, which is located immediately next to Terminal 1. Most international tourists arrive and depart from the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which has flights going to 70 international cities in countries throughout the world. The most popular international flights from LAX are those to London, England with 1.4 million annual travelers, Tokyo, Japan with 1,1 million, and Seoul, South Korea with 1 million yearly travelers. Other popular international flights include those to Sydney (4th most popular international destination, Taipei (5th), and Vancouver (6th). Top domestic destinations include San Francisco with 1.8 million annual passengers, New York (1.7 million), Chicago (1.3 million), and Las Vegas (1.2 million).
Having a long layover, delayed flight, or just extra time to spend at the airport? Don’t fear! While many book a Los Angeles party bus for the 35-minute ride to Hollywood, there is no reason to leave the airport for good times. Home to over fifty restaurants and numerous shops, bars, pubs and similar, there is always an activity to do at LAX. Why not go for French bread as an appetizer at the La Brea Bakery, followed by a drink at Corona Bar or Ciabatta Bar? Or if you missed out on the great Malibu wine tours why not do some last-minute wine tasting at the SeaLegs Wine Bar? L.A.’s eight terminals are home to various eateries and shops, make sure to research the terminal you will spend time in to find the best restaurants and activities to fill your time. Occupying 3,500 acres with millions of passengers arriving and departing annually, navigating the airport can be made easier by researching the airport and its venues prior to arriving. We would advice domestic passengers using our LAX limousine service to arrive here at minimum two hours prior to departure, while we would recommend international travelers to arrive three hours prior to take-off. Using a chauffeured LA limo, sedan or SUV will ensure timely arrival at the terminal of your choice.

Check out Los Angeles party bus rentals for a night out in Hollywood! As the airport is located several miles south of the happening places of Downtown and Hollywood, scheduling transfers prior to arriving at the airport is important when traveling out of L.A. Because of its relatively close proximity to Hollywood and the studios, many locals and celebrities fly in to Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport for a shorter drive into Hollywood. We serve all SoCal airports, so whether you are flying out of Santa Barbara, John Wayne or L.A. International, contact us for your on-time airport transfer.
