I’m a celeb, get me in there!

LOS ANGELES International Airport is to have a terminal exclusively for the use of celebrities and the world’s wealthiest travellers. The airport’s commissioners have approved plans to redevelop a cargo hanger into a suite for wealthy and famous travellers, the Guardian reports. 

The service – which will enable guests to be dropped off behind closed doors, to avoid press photographers – will cost from $1,500. Passengers will have access to exclusive lounges, restaurants, and separate security checks. When it’s time to board, they will be driven directly to their plane.

According to reports, the plan for the suite promises that guests will have to walk no more than about 60 steps.

Airport managers say they believe the terminal would bring in revenues of $3.7 million in the first year and $34 million over the first 10 years.

Security firm Gavin de Becker & Associates plan to roll out the service to New York (JFK), San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, and Dallas, if the LA venture is successful.

Go Holiday editor David Kernek comments: On paper, this looks like a viable plan, but … for most of the people who pass as celebs these days, getting pictures of them passing through airports and shopping in London, LA, and New York is vital to their continued celebrity.
