The Los Santos International Airport (LSX) in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is based on the real-life Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). LSX is located at the southern end of Los Santos.

The airport is stated as being the fourth busiest airport in the world. The airport was originally built as an airfield for the Los Santos Air National Guard. In 1942, it was converted for commercial flights. The airport is made up of five gates that are connected by a U-shaped two-level main terminal.[1] The airport is located on the freeway, but there are also direct road links into the center of the city.

There is always a Shamal and a Dodo parked at the airport, with Baggage carts and Tugs, either parked or being driven around, often alongside other vehicles. The player can purchase Juank Air flights to and from Las Venturas Airport and Easter Bay International Airport for $500, but no flights actually take off or land without the player investigating it.


The interior of the airport is only seen in the first cutscene of the game. The player does not has any free access to the interior at all. The interior is not located inside the airport itself but in the interior heavens only accessible through cheats or modifications.
