About PS

What is PS?

Imagine having an airport virtually all to yourself. PS is a private luxury terminal serving commercial flights at LAX. Far removed from the chaos of the surrounding airport and just steps away from the airfield, we offer the ease, privacy and security of the private flight experience for commercial travel.

 

With unprecedented access, PS has the only private partnership with both TSA and Customs and Border Protection, our guests move seamlessly through arrivals and departures. A team of expert Agents works behind the scenes to choreograph every step of the pre- or post-flight experience. Sail through our private, line-free TSA screening, access dedicated customs and immigration services on arrival and relax as our drivers escort you across the airfield directly to/from your aircraft. All without stepping inside LAX. Guests also enjoy luxurious lounges or private suites, chef-prepared food, spa services and more, all while our Control Room coordinates with government, security and airline officials to ensure the utmost efficiency, safety and privacy.

 

Waiting in lines, maneuvering through crowds and handling unwieldy luggage are things of the past at PS. So is the airport experience you’ve come to know.

How is PS different from lounges at the airport?

PS is not at the airport, it is a “back door” to the airport.

 

PS offers luxurious, first-of-its-kind service that traditional airport lounges do not, beginning with a private, traffic-free entrance adjacent to LAX and a team of dedicated Agents assigned to each traveling party to ensure a smooth, stress-free journey from start to finish. Here are all the ways PS is different.

 

  • A separate terminal building adjacent to LAX runways, removed from the chaos and vehicular traffic of the main terminals.
  • Unprecedented logistics handled by a team of expert Agents.
  • Private TSA screening and customs and immigrations arrival services.
  • Dedicated luggage porters to shepherd bags to and from your aircraft.
  • Drivers to escort guests across the airfield to and from their commercial aircraft in a private vehicle.
  • Luxurious private indoor and outdoor lounge spaces for a hotel-like experience.
  • Dining choices ranging from fine catered meals to courier- delivered fast food drop-offs on request.
