Bob Hope Airport and the city of Burbank are moving forward with their plan to fund a replacement terminal by developing a 58-acre property on Hollywood Way that is owned by the airfield. In a 3-2 vote Thursday night, the Burbank City Council approved the use of roughly $1.35 million - to be paid back by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority - on an environmental impact report for the proposed terminal as well as potential development of the 58-acre parcel, known as the “B6” site.

Regarding the airport counts and airport parking fee articles in the Nov. 6 Burbank Leader: The problem with flying out of Burbank is that the flights are both more expensive and take longer, which is a non-starter in most cases. I fly 10 times a year and would prefer not to go to LAX, but there's little incentive provided by Bob Hope Airport at this point. By increasing the price of parking (instead of decreasing it to attract more customers), there's even less reason to do so. If you want to increase passenger counts, think of the benefits that could be provided to the customer, not the airport.

Passengers at Bob Hope Airport will be able to keep their iPods and Kindles on through takeoff and landing - some starting Saturday, others soon, as airlines react to the Federal Aviation Administration's decision this week to allow the use of electronics below 10,000 feet for the first time. The FAA rule change came on Thursday, and now permits the use of electronic devices in “airplane mode” - with connection to cellular data networks disconnected - during all phases of flight.

No flights were diverted to Burbank following a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport Friday morning , but airlines could still choose to do so, said Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill. "There has been discussion of possibly diverting a flight or two, but nothing is confirmed," he said. "In any case the number of flights we're talking about are very small in number so they shouldn't have any real impact on the airport's operation. " Gill said that overall, the pace of business at Bob Hope Airport was not noticeably different today, aside from heightened security measures like an expanded Airport Police presence and vehicle searches for all cars entering the airport's short-term parking structure.

It's like your grandmother wanting to get an R-rated glamor-shot makeover. Not only do you definitely not want to see her all tarted up in a push-up bra and marabou-trimmed satin mules, you have to run out of the room hollering over the sound of her voice whenever she so much as mentions it . Same thing, aviation-wise, when it comes to Burbank airport, since 2003 called Bob Hope Airport. Before that it was the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, the neighborhood airport for the 818 area code and parts of the 626 and 323. Like your granny, it's 80-ish years old, and also like your granny, it has sacrificed uber-modernity for the sake of comfort and shabby charm, and that's the way we've liked it. At the Burbank airport, you don't expect first-class lounges with massages and lattes; you don't look for caviar snacks or Gucci  boutiques.

Bob Hope Airport is officially in the commemorative brick business. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday received a look at www.skiesoffreedom. com, the website launched by the airport to handle orders of the mementos to be included in the airport's transportation center currently under construction. The airport officials hope that former Lockheed employees and other participants in the aviation developments that occurred in Burbank - such as the creation of the P-38 fighter and SR-71 spy plane - will pay to have bricks inscribed with their names, significant dates and, for the larger bricks, illustrations of planes built by Lockheed.

The new terminal planned for Bob Hope Airport would be up to 68% larger than the current facility, officials said this week. The replacement terminal would have 14 gates, the same as the current building. However, it's planned to be 355,102 square feet in size, compared to the existing 210,599-square-foot terminal, according to information presented to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday. Dan Feger, the airport's executive director, said Tuesday that the size of the new terminal might eventually be pared down, but the current figure will be used in the project's environmental impact study, which is slated to begin before the end of the year.
