Airplane Noise

LAX Advisories:


LAX will temporarily close the north inboard runway 24L/6R this Thursday and Friday, February 16th and 17th, 2017 for approximately 5 hours from 1 AM to 6 AM each night. These runway closures are necessary to facilitate environmental work near the runway area. 

Persons living near LAX may notice a change in aircraft flight activity and noise during these temporary runway closures. When the north inboard runway (24L/6R) temporarily closes during these periods, more aircraft are expected to use the north outboard runway (24R/6L) for departure and arrival operations. In addition, some aircraft operations are expected to shift from the north to the south runway complex. The FAA will continue to conduct

Over-Ocean Operations

at LAX during these closures between midnight and 6:30 A.M. if weather and other operational conditions permit. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience during these temporary runway closures.

FAA SoCal Metroplex Community Engagement

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) signed a Finding of No Significant Impact and (FONSI) Record of Decision (ROD) for the Southern California Metroplex project on August 31, 2016. This is the FAA’s final decision, and it enables the agency to move forward with implementing the project, which will replace dozens of existing conventional air traffic control procedures with new satellite-based procedures. The project is being implemented in phases between November 2016 and April 2017. FAA is planning community outreach in support of the implementation of the project. The outreach will consist of both public information briefings and internet-based webinars. Click here for more information.
