'LAX at Home' Connects Airport, Community As Angelenos

As communities throughout California and the world fight the spread of COVID-19 by staying safer at home and avoiding non-essential travel.

(Los Angeles, CA) As communities throughout California and the world fight the spread of COVID-19 by staying safer at home and avoiding non-essential travel, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) continues to engage our communities – from the youngest to the oldest – with activities that are perfect for avid travelers.

Since most people are staying home, we are bringing LAX into their homes, with a variety of engaging, educational and fun activities and content that capture the spirit of LAX during a time when most people can't physically visit the airport. From virtual tours of our award-winning art program, to video visits with our Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUPs), to games and coloring activities, there is something for everyone.

Here's a look at what's available now and ongoing as part of LAX At Home. 

All of LAX's volunteers are staying safer at home, and our LAX Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) canine teams are no exception. For now, our PUPs and their handlers are connecting with people at home, providing updates on how they are spending their time and gearing up for visiting the airport again. LAX Pups at Home videos are available on our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube platforms. New content is being added weekly. Click on the image above to meet Klaus. 

The Los Angeles area is home to some of the most creative people in the world, and LAX is home to a collection of innovative and powerful public art. A new video series called "LAX Art at Home" interviews some of the newest artists at LAX and gives viewers a deeper look at the process and meaning behind art now on display inside LAX terminals. LA-based artist Luciana Abait is the first to appear in this occasional series and talks about her mixed-media exhibit, "A Letter to the Future," which is currently on view in Terminal 7 until fall of 2020.

Looking for fun activities at home? LAX now offers a variety of downloadable airport-themed coloring pages. Options include the iconic Theme Building, the forthcoming Automated People Mover, a commercial aircraft and the famous LAX pylons. Interested in testing your brain skills? LAX has a variety of puzzles and word searches. There are options for travelers of all ages and skill levels. 

Are you missing all the things you loved so much about America’s second-busiest airport? Well, now you can bring the entire LAX experience to your home! 'LAX At Home' offers a complete, printable board game that anyone can play. The game challenges players to make it around the famous LAX horseshoe the fastest. Along the way, nearly 50 Boarding Pass Cards offer advantages and setbacks as you move your piece toward the airport exit. Experience the excitement of world-class restaurants, catch a performance or check out the celebrity sightings. Just watch out for traffic, paparazzi and leave two hours before your flight. It’s all the fun of a real LAX trip – at home. 

Music and airplanes both help connect the world, so LAX has created a number of playlists designed to help reconnect us with the many places that we can't visit right now. These playlists, called Airport Love, are available on Spotify. New playlists will be uploaded on LAX social media sites as they are released.
