Reminder - Los Angeles World Airports Launches New Radio Station at Ontario International Airport to Provide Security and Travel Information

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 13, 2006 --


WHAT:   Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) will hold a news conference to
        launch a new radio station at Ontario International Airport (ONT)
        in time for the upcoming busy Thanksgiving holiday period. The new
        radio station, on 770 AM, will be part of ONT's overall security
        program.  It will provide the traveling public and airport visitors
        with critical airport security information.  The station will also
        provide information on terminal and airline locations, parking,
        ground transportation, services and amenities, and travel
        recommendations that will make traveling through ONT easier and
        more convenient.

        The Federal Communications Commission allows a low-powered signal
        for this type of station which can be heard for several miles on
        roads and freeways surrounding the airport. Caltrans placed signs
        along freeways approaching the airport to inform drivers about the
        station.  The station's studio is located in the airport's
        Administration Building and a newly constructed transmitter site is
        on the airport perimeter near the main access road.

        Visuals include the new antenna tower, broadcast equipment on site
        with airport in the background, studio with broadcast gear, and
        airport officials switching on a giant mock on-air switch.

        ONT is located in Southern California's "Inland Empire" region that
        includes San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. The medium-hub
        airport, which handles 7.2 million passengers and 575,000 tons of
        cargo annually, is one of four owned and operated by LAWA, a Los
        Angeles city department that oversees an airport system in the
        nation's second largest metropolitan area. The other airports owned
        and operated by LAWA are Los Angeles International (LAX), Palmdale
        Regional (PMD) and Van Nuys (VNY).
