Airports serve as the front doors to their cities and many do a great job of rolling out the welcome mat for visitors.
Some airports do it with art. Some airports do it with “Welcome to” signs.
And others do it with recorded messages.
Los Angeles International Airport has been welcoming visitors with its “Voices of Los Angeles” project. The program greets passengers with recorded messages from notable and well-known local figures.
Since the inauguration of the Voices of Los Angeles program in July 2019, passengers and visitors at LAX have been treated to welcome messages recorded by entertainers, sports figures, musicians, actors, and chefs. The common theme: they all have what the airport calls “the spirit of Los Angeles.”
Now there are three new familiar voices in the line-up:
TV and film actor Danny Trejo – who also owns several restaurants, including Trejo’s Taco at LAX;
Academy Award-winning actress Allison Janney;
And former LA Lakers basketball star Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
Give a listen:
These messages are now playing on the overhead public announcement system in each terminal. New voices and new messages will continue to be rotated in on a regular basis.
Who would you like to hear welcoming you to LAX?
