12 AM – 6:30 AM


Deviation from Over-Ocean Operations is expected to occur on the following dates between 12 AM and 6:30 AM due to the closure of both runways (24L/6R and 24R/6L) on the north complex for work relating to the North Airfield Exit Taxiways Project.

  • October 10 – 12, 2023, Tuesday to Thursday

Whenever possible, the FAA transitions LAX air traffic flow to Over-Ocean Operations from 12 AM to 6:30 AM, wherein aircraft arrive and depart over the ocean to minimize noise disturbance to the communities directly east of the airport. During this traffic flow, the south runway complex is utilized primarily for departures while the north runway complex is utilized primarily for arrivals.


With both runways being closed on the north complex during these periods, deviation from this traffic flow is required with aircraft using only the south runway complex for arrival and departure operations.


Residents may notice a change in aircraft flight activity and noise as a result of this deviation. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this temporary condition.
