Parking revenues and passenger figures at Bob Hope Airport continued to sink in August, each coming in more than 7% lower than a year ago, according to the latest report.
Parking revenues slid roughly 8.2% in August compared to the same period last year, according to statistics released to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday. The drop came after declines of 10.7% in July, 7.3% in June and 8.7% in May.
The airfield also reported $1.5 million in revenues from parking fees in August, compared to $1.6 million last year.
Dan Feger, the airport’s executive director, said the parking-revenue drop moved in tandem with a 7.65% decrease in the number of passengers, but it’s also due to the fact that more drivers are dropping passengers off at the curb in front of the terminal.
There were 362,763 passengers who traveled through the airport in August, compared to 392,826 in August 2011.
