Traveling from LAX.

Southwest Airlines is proud to serve Los Angeles International Airport.

Flying out of Los Angeles International Airport is a snap. Whether you drive and park, arrange a shuttle, take advantage of public transit, or call a car, making your way to the airport is just the first step of your upcoming excursion—do your best to make it as easy as possible.

Tinseltown is beloved—and infamous—for many reasons, but it’s impossible to experience everything the entire world has to offer from inside the City of Angels. Venturing beyond L.A.—even beyond California—is necessary to get a glimpse of wonders beyond the Hollywood Walk of Fame and PCH. Trade the Hollywood sign and the Capitol Records building for skyscrapers. Leave behind freeway traffic for the line to the ski lift. See what benefits (if any) the Atlantic coast has over the Pacific. The U.S. awaits. So do parts beyond. We can help you get there.

Call “Cut!” and move on to the next scene. Book a flight away from LAX on Southwest Airlines. Whether you choose a mountainside getaway, a plains state pause, or to disappear into another way of life entirely, Southwest® can take you there from Los Angeles International Airport. Discover all your destination and flight options and check out exciting trip add-ons from Southwest Airlines® Experiences—and rack up those Rapid Rewards® points when you fly. Know your booking process will be straightforward from flight selection to checkout to boarding. Learn more about what makes the Southwest® Experience different.
