In 1937 the city bought the airport, founded a department and, in 1941, called the airport Los Angeles Airport. The airport was first extended and called Los Angeles International Airport in 1949. Until that time, Grand Central Air Terminal in Glendale was the local commercial airport in the region.
In 1958, due to increasing traffic after the second world war and the start of the jet plane era, several architects made plans to develop the airport grounds for the future. The first project was a reception area which was built in 1961 in the shape of a UFO with 4 decks. The first jet from New York landed in 1959 and the fist jumbo jets (Boeing 747) then followed in 1970 when TWA used them for its route from New York to Los Angeles.
There were further plans to expand the airport when it became known in 1981 that Los Angeles would host the summer Olympics in 1984. The airport commission made 700 million dollars available to completely renew the old terminal. Another terminal was also to be built for domestic as well as one for international scheduled traffic. Building work was started the following July with a ceremony led by the mayor Tom Bradley, also the name of the international Terminal, and James Harold Doolittle, aviation pioneer and brigadier general. The official opening ceremony of the renovated and extended airport took place about a month before the Olympic games, on 11th June 1984.
A further terminal for the Airbus A380 has recently been construction. Since 2012 a fully automatic underground People Mover connects the Tom Bradley Terminal with the main terminal.
