LA airport opens luxury celebrity terminal

Celebrities who are tired of being stalked by photographers at Los Angeles International Airport can now find some privacy - not to mention luxury - at a new terminal.

The 22 million dollar (£17 million) facility called the Private Suite opened on Monday and offers an exclusive entrance, one-on-one security screening and plush lounges.

When it is time to catch the flight, privileged travellers get a private car ride across the tarmac to the aircraft, head-of-state style.

The terminal is available to anyone who can afford fees up to 3,500 dollars (£2,700) for a domestic flight or 4,000 dollars (£3,100) for an international flight.

Annual memberships are also available.

The terminal was built by a security consulting firm that says it will generate 35 million dollars ( £27 million) in revenue for the airport over the next nine years.
