How many flights come in and out of LAX every day?

If you count international, domestic, military, cargo, and private aircraft, the airport logs 1,578 landings and takeoffs every 24 hours. That averages one plane down a runway every 55 seconds. We have the busiest airport in California, the third busiest in the country (Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson is number one; Chicago’s O’Hare, number two), and the sixth busiest in the world.
