The Oscar-winning Gia actress was accompanied by her youngest daughter, 15-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, whom she shares with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
The 48-year-old humanitarian looked unusually lighthearted as she pushed back her head while laughing.
The A-lister has been spending more time with Vivienne in recent weeks as the teen is now working for her mom as her assistant on a Broadway musical.
While at the bustling airport, both Angelina and Vivienne were dressed for comfort.

Jolie wore a belted beige raincoat over a light gray top and slacks with shiny beige heels. Her hair was worn back and she had on tinted black glasses.
Her daughter had on blue top and black sweatpants with navy blue Converse sneakers and her honey hued hair down as she wore a black mask and carried a black bag.
Vivienne is one of six children Angelina shares with ex Pitt, whom she split from in 2016 after two years of marriage and a decade together.
They’re also parents to Maddox, 22, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 17, and Vivienne’s twin brother Knox. They’re still battling over custody of their minor children.
Tuesday’s sighting comes shortly after it was revealed that Angelina is now a lead producer on the Broadway musical adaptation of the 1983 film The Outsiders.
Not only is this her first Broadway involvement, but it is also the first time Angelina has worked on a project with Vivienne.
According to ET, Vivienne will serve as Angelina’s volunteer assistant and have direct involvement with the production.
‘Viv reminds me of my mother [Marcheline Bertrand] in that she isn’t focused on being the center of attention but in being a support to other creatives,’ the actress said in a statement to the outlet.

What a cast! Jolie is working on a musical adaptation of the 1983 film The Outsiders. The film starred Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell and Tom Cruise
‘She’s very thoughtful and serious about theatre and working hard to best understand how to contribute.’
A source dished that Vivienne ‘loves musical theater’ and that Angelina has been taking her to productions ‘since she was a little girl.’
That film starred a who’s who of young Hollywood at the time: Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, C Thomas Howell and Ralph Macchio.
The musical had its world premiere at La Jolla Playhouse earlier this year and a source told ET that Angelina and Vivienne ‘both fell in love with the musical’ when they saw it.
‘Angelina and Vivienne subsequently met with S.E. Hinton, who was around Vivienne’s age when she wrote the novel,’ the insider claimed.

‘As a result of seeing the show and the conversation with S.E. Hinton, Angelina was inspired to take a role as a lead producer for the upcoming launch on Broadway.’
The Broadway cast of The Outsiders and show dates have yet to be revealed.
‘I hope to be able to contribute while continuing to learn from this amazing team, who I have been working with since my daughter brought me to see the show at La Jolla Playhouse,’ Angelina said in a statement earlier this month.
‘I can’t begin to express how excited I am for this musical to make its Broadway debut and look forward to sharing this new adaptation of The Outsiders with the world.’
The synopsis for The Outsiders film reads: ‘A teen gang in rural Oklahoma, the Greasers are perpetually at odds with the Socials, a rival group.
‘When Greasers Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny (Ralph Macchio) get into a brawl that ends in the death of a Social member, the boys are forced to go into hiding.
‘Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with the intense Dallas (Matt Dillon) and their other Greaser buddies, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.’
The Outsiders musical features a story by Adam Rapp with Justin Levine, music and lyrics by Jonathan Clay, Zach Chance and Levine. It will be directed by Danya Taymor.
