- Your flights from LAX just got an upgrade with thePrivate Suite experience for VIP travelers.
- As members of the Private Suite LAX, travelers are escorted to a hotel-style room where couches and refreshments await and their TSA screening is done in private — no lines, baggage check or walking across terminals.
- LAX announced partnerships with Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, and Montage Beverly Hills to enhance Private Suite accommodations.
If you’ve ever dreamt of an airport terminal with a quiet place to read while you wait to board your flight, or if you’ve ever desperately wanted to take a shower the moment you land, there’s a secluded place that can happen at LAX. As long as you’re willing to dish out $4,500 a year for annual membership, a private bathroom (with shower) is on the horizon.
LAX launched The Private Suite last spring, promising a VIP experience: free of long lines and for higher-profile individuals, no paparazzi. This month, the members-only service announced partnerships with Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, and Montage Beverly Hills offering packages for VIP travelers that include complimentary use of the Private Suite.
Members of The Private Suite never have to step foot in the main terminal — the company claims it takes precisely 70 steps from car to aircraft. Check-in, baggage, customs, and TSA screening are processed discreetly, while clients sit back in their hotel-style rooms and watch planes take off from their windows. A team of eight is assigned to each traveler, escorting clients from the moment they enter the gated compound to the time they board their flights.
Gavin de Becker and Associates owns and operates The Private Suite, which means the same national security services that have protected US government officials, business executives, and prominent families oversee these exclusive accommodations at LAX, one of the country’s busiest airports.
Here's an inside look at the what it’s like to be a member of The Private Suite:
