Bob Hope Airport on Friday launched its new customer loyalty program, which gives visitors rewards for purchases made at the airfield and will hopefully spark more spending that will benefit its coffers. The partnership allows visitors to register their credit or debit cards with Georgia-based Thanks Again in order to receive airline miles or hotel points for purchases made at the airport's parking lots, restaurants or gift shops. These points are received in addition to any reward points normally earned by the card.

Spirits were soaring when children in the city's day camp program visited Burbank Bob Hope Airport on Thursday. Seventy youngsters heard about airport's history and career opportunities, participated in demonstrations and saw the equipment used by the airport police and fire departments. Seeing what goes on behind the scenes is a great opportunity for the kids because many of them don't get the opportunity to fly, said Jon McGinley, recreation coordinator for the Summer Daze Express program at Robert Gross Park.

Recent talks between the City Council and Bob Hope Airport officials regarding a new terminal is good news for both sides. The airfield and community have the joint opportunity to update the aging facility and a responsibility to improve the space between the runway and terminal to meet current Federal Aviation Administration guidelines. With a deadline on a development agreement between the city and airport fast approaching, the time is now to gain input from residents. Under provisions of Measure B, approved in 2000, Burbank voters must give their approval for a new terminal before it can be built.

With Bob Hope Airport looking to replace its 83-year-old terminal, Burbank council members made it clear this week that they want the city to have a say in those plans as well as any future development of a 58-acre plot of airport-owned land known as the "B6" parcel. At a study session on Tuesday, Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority President Susan Georgino told the Council that the airport's plans for future development include demolishing the existing terminal and building a new one farther away from the airport's runways.

A bill moving through the U.S. Congress to allow Bob Hope Airport to change its voluntary curfew to a mandatory one is supported by the airfield and the city of Burbank, but it could present a tricky situation for UPS and FedEx, which rely on early-morning arrivals. Back in May, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), along with Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), reintroduced the Valley-Wide Noise Relief Act, which would give Bob Hope and Van Nuys airports the authority to prohibit flights after 10 p.m. and before 7 a.m. The measure had failed to pass during the last legislative session.
