LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Travelers can now enjoy the ultimate in culinary creativity for

spearheaded by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), Southwest Airlines and
Westfield. When finished, Terminal 1 will feature 24 world-class dining
and retail concepts with a bold new terminal design spanning 25,252

“As a hometown brand born in Los Angeles, we couldn’t be more proud to
be a part of the exciting transformation underway at LAX with the
opening of our new, full-service restaurant in Southwest’s world-class
Terminal 1,” said G.J. Hart, executive chairman and CEO of California
Pizza Kitchen. “Host to millions of travelers from around the world each
year, it’s the ideal place to showcase our creative, globally inspired
dishes, served with a distinctly Californian vibe.

“Local guests and global travelers who pass through LAX have high
standards when it comes to cuisine – after all Los Angeles is one of the
foodie capitals of the world – so we have created an outstanding menu
that offers exclusive items found only at LAX,” Hart continued.
“Prepared with high-quality ingredients like locally raised cage-free
eggs, seasonal produce and premium proteins like North Atlantic salmon,
the offerings at this new location are steps above what you might
normally expect to find in an airport setting. We are proud to partner
with Areas and Westfield to open the new CPK at LAX Terminal 1 and look
forward to welcoming Southwest passengers to relax and dine with us

“We’re pleased to welcome California Pizza Kitchen to LAX as we reach
our next milestone in the modernization of Terminal 1,” said Don Ostler,
Southwest Airlines Senior Project Manager. “This next phase continues
the enhancement of the dining experience available to our Customers, and
we look forward to having CPK’s culinary creations and superb customer
service offered right here at LAX Terminal 1.”

“We are excited to partner with California Pizza Kitchen, a restaurant
whose globally inspired menu using locally sourced ingredients
truly captures the spirit of LA we are helping to convey in T1. It is an
integral part of making an amazing passenger experience for our
Southwest guests,” said Xavier Rabell, CEO of Areas US.

“The Terminal 1 transformation offers a reimagined airport experience,
featuring a hip, modern California feel that taps into Los Angeles and
the energy of the Southwest Airlines brand,” said Keith Kaplan,
Westfield’s Vice President at LAX. “Along with our partners at LAWA,
Southwest and Areas, we’re seeing that transformation take shape every
day. The opening of CPK at LAX marks yet another key milestone in the
overall transformation.”

CPK at LAX is the latest step in CPK’s “Next Chapter” transformation,
which is currently rolling out to the restaurant’s 190+ domestic,
company-owned locations as well as 83 global franchised units in
airports, stadiums and full-service restaurants overseas. The
