LAX will temporarily close the south outboard runway (25L/7R) to perform maintenance  on the following dates and times:

  • October 2 – 5, 2023, Monday to Thursday
  • October 16 – 19, 2023, Monday to Thursday
  • October 30 – November 2, 2023, Monday to Thursday

Persons living near LAX may notice a change in aircraft flight activity and noise during these closures as the FAA may delay the commencement of nighttime Over-Ocean Operations at LAX for up to about an hour on these dates. The closure of runway 25L/7R limits the runway availability for Design Group VI aircraft to operate at the airport and can cause a potential conflict with this traffic flow. Thus, the delay is necessary to allow these aircraft (if any) to depart LAX between 12 AM and 1 AM before commencing the over-ocean traffic flow.


Thank you for your understanding and patience during this temporary situation.
