Schedule of Upcoming Runway Closures

Los Angeles World Airports is committed to being a good neighbor by minimizing aircraft noise within surrounding communities when possible and keeping our neighbors informed of any temporary changes in aircraft operations. As part of this effort, we are providing information on upcoming runway closures that may cause residents to notice a change in aircraft flight activity and associated noise. This information is intended to help promote public awareness and understanding of aircraft noise issues that may temporarily affect residential areas.  

The following table provides a schedule of runway closure activity for February 2019. To learn more about the specific change in aircraft operations associated with each runway closure, please click on the hyperlink below in the last column.

FAA SoCal Metroplex Public Information Workshops - January and February 2017

The City invited the public to come learn about changes in flight paths occurring in March and April 2017 that will upgrade the existing system to satellite-based technology.  A series of public information workshops and Internet-based webinars were conducted in January and February to provide a variety of information on the Metroplex project.  The public information workshops were an open-house format where the public can attend anytime during the posted times to learn about the project.  FAA representatives provided a variety of information on the project and were on site to answer questions.

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.
