The airport serves as a major hub for transport in to and out of Los Angeles, California.
During the onset of the global zombie outbreak, the airport was presumably shut down and abandoned; causing numerous flights to be canceled. However this did not include Flight 462, which departed as expected from the airport.
The airport itself can only be seen briefly, lit up at night. Flight 462 at the time was boarding with numerous passengers taking their seats including Jake (whose parents could not make the flight) and Alex. The plane then takes off from the airport, headed for Phoenix, Arizona.
