Did you know that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) handles over 1,700 flights daily, as per seven-day rolling averages provided by RadarBox.com?

At the moment, such a figure is lower than the pre-pandemic figures, but the steady climb is on its way.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Based on the seven-day rolling averages, Los Angeles International Airport handled 1,752 flights, which is an increase of 8.21% compared to the same period last year.

Compared to the same level in 2019 however, this is around 279 movements short of achieving pre-pandemic capacity.

Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data from the airport:

What we can see from the data is that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is making progress in movement growth, but there is still a lot to do in that space to meet pre-pandemic capacity.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the airport to see how the rest of the year will look like in terms of bumping those averages up and getting close to pre-pandemic levels.

As soon as flights get reinstated to 2019 levels, then the airport can move ahead, thrive further, and expand in correspondence to demand.
