Question regarding Federal Inspection (FIS) history at LAX

Sat Dec 29, 2018 6:41 pm

Been doing a bit of LAX history research but have been unable to find out when FIS services were started in Terminals 5 and 7.
As United was primarily a domestic carrier at LAX until the early '90s, I'm assuming that FIS at Terminal 7 might have been built then?
Thanks for any replies.
Cheers.

FIS at 5 goes back to 1970s maybe earlier. Western Airlines and Mexicana both had international flights at T-5 those days. Of course, that T-5 facility was a different building than the T-5 there today that opened in 1987.
The United T6/7 FIS as I recall was the result of a project across T6-7-8 by United in mid 1990s. Prior to this United international passengers cleared at TBIT (they still do during certain periods of the day)
