LAX gets massive reimbursement for detection machines

Online Exclusive, Sep 4 2003

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has agreed to reimburse Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) nearly $256.5 million to defray the cost of installing permanent explosive detection systems integrated in-line with the checked baggage conveyor systems at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Ontario International Airport (ONT).

The federal reimbursement represents 75 percent of the total costs at both airports. The LAX portion of the reimbursement ($235,056,000) is the largest federal grant received for a single project at LAX in the airport's 75-year history.

"This agreement gives Los Angeles World Airports much-needed resources to meet the security challenges our airports face in the post-Sept. 11 world," L.A. Mayor Jim Hahn says.

LAX and ONT serve more than a combined 63 million passengers annually. On average, more than 150,000 bags are checked daily at LAX.
