You can even arrange a Concierge Doctor to be waiting in their suite.
Inside LAX’s ridiculously swanky private terminal – and how you can get access
- Updated 09:26, 11 JAN 2019
LAX is one of the world’s busiest airports, but when you can splash the cash you don’t need to face the crowds. That’s because the LA-based airport has its very own lavish private terminal, where guests get the full A-lister treatment. Named The Private Suite, it has its own customs and security area and entrance gate so you don’t have to face any of the usual queues or crowds. As for those uncomfortable waiting areas? Here they’re a thing of the past. Instead, you get your own private suite complete with a two-person day bed, an ensuite bathroom and even a food service pantry to fuel up before the long flight ahead. Oh, and don’t worry about lifting a finger – each suite has a dedicated team of eight people assigned to cater to your every whim.
The Private Suite is owned and operated by Gavin de Becker & Associates, the 775-person consulting and service firm that protects many of the world’s most prominent people. Headquartered in Los Angeles, GDBA has operations in 27 cities and 7 countries. GDBA’s Aviation Services Division at LAX is run by two leaders recruited from London’s Heathrow Airport: Danny Sloan directed all VIP services at Heathrow and Steve Gargaro managed The Windsor Suite. Leading our hospitality team is Vikram Sood, formerly with Four Seasons and The Ritz Carlton. The Private Suite was co-founded by Gavin de Becker and Joshua Gausman.
