LAX remote west gates

Sat Jun 18, 2016 8:25 am

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and are working on a small project with the remote western gates that is used through a bus shuttle.

I have looked around after the gate numbers of these gates but they aren't mentioned on any of the terminal/gate maps over LAX, and the pictures on Google Earth are to blurry to be possible to read.

Does anyone know what the numbers of these gates are?

Here is a link to a diagram with all the information you might need and more. Turns out some gates have sub-numbers (i.e., 203A and 203B):

Scroll down to image 12 of 22 for best results. It is from 2011 so it might be a bit dated but I did notice that it had the A380 remote hard stand listed as gate 212B.

Thanks a lot, this was the information I needed for the ground work, even though the text on picture number 13 was very small, but that wasn't your fault.

I don't recall ever seeing permanent jetways at a remote hardstand before. Other than maybe keeping passengers from wandering off where they aren't supposed to, I wonder what that buys you?

Are there any other airports in the world with 'drive-thru' gates such as 208 & 209? And why were 206 & 207 converted from 'drive thru' to normal stands?

To make narrow body parking sports, 205A&B is on the east side of 207.

Will these remote gates be permanent onto TBIT map or is it solely used for parking long layover flights? Arrived in LAX one night and gate 211 213 215 216 217 218 219 all occupied by International flights going West towards Asia and Australia.

Is the OP working on some personal project? Just seems like a bit of an odd request. I wonder who monitors this website

FWIW, I'd probably come here for the same kind of question. Seems pretty innocuous; I mean, it's not like they're asking for utility as-builts or something like that.

Never been through those gates before, so I can't tell if there are permanent elevators or escalators inside the white structures rather than just stairs, but you have to get from ground level up to the jetway.

It's been a few years but from what I recall there are large ramps inside with intermediate turning platforms.

Are these gates actually used for boarding/disembarking? Or just to hold the aircraft on a layover? If so, why do they need the jetbridges?

Yes, that's why the bus gates at TBIT exist. I boarded a TN flight out there a while back.

They definitely have ramps that switch back inside to get from ground to jetway level. I am not sure if they have elevators for wjheelchairs.

I've often thought that these gates would be ideal if a plane presented a biological risk or some kind of air or passenger borne contamination- pax could be full isolated from ANY contact with the terminal and exposure to ground staff (medical personnel?) could be effectively managed since access to these gates can be easily limited.

I wonder of such plans or contingencies exist. There are other airports (DFW) with similar kinds of remote gates that are easily isolated...

Thank you very much everyone for the help with this information.

Now, does anyone know where I can find a background photo from taken from these gates looking to the south or to the north? Not including any wing, engines or other parts of the aircraft, just the look over the runways and the houses and mountains to the north, or the building and houses to the south. .

At times, especially when there is construction at one of the main terminals. these remote stands are utilized as passenger gates. Through my experience, they bus passengers out to the specified gate, and then you climb stairs or take the elevator to the second floor of the unit, and board that way. It was quite interesting to go so far out to board a plane.

Are there any amenities in these areas? I assume there are restrooms, but any vendors?
