LAX passengers will now be greeted by celebrity voices to get them in an L.A. mood

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles International Airport is welcoming people to the airport with the help of several celebrities, including ABC's Jimmy Kimmel.

Several recorded greetings will be played as people arrive at the airport starting Wednesday.

Here's what you might hear at one of the terminals:

"Hi, I'm Jimmy Kimmel. Welcome to LAX. We apologize for all the construction but you'll forget all about it once you get on the 405. Anyway, we hope you enjoy your stay in Los Angeles. And if you need anything at all, call Matt Damon, he has no friends."

Other celebrities who lent their voices to welcome passengers include Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and renowned local chef Susan Feniger.

L.A. Philharmonic conductor Gustavo Dudamel will greet flyers in both English and Spanish.

Airport officials say more celebrities will be added to the roster of welcoming voices.
