Karen S. Kim AIRPORT DISTRICT -- A political group in Washington, D.C. has taken on the arduous task of reducing congestion at Southern California's overused airports, including Los Angeles International Airport and Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport. The way to tackle this difficult feat is by shifting airport activity to underused airports like Palmdale Regional Airport and Ontario International Airport, the group proposed. The group, called the Southern California Regional Airport Congressional Working Group, met with Norman Mineta, head of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and Federal Aviation Administrator Jane Garvey on July 19 in Washington, D.C. to discuss their proposal.

BURBANK ? The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday heard the details of new ordinance that regulates the activities of solicitors seeking donations from travelers at the Los Angeles International Airport. But the authority is unlikely to adopt a similar policy because solicitors do not pose as significant a problem in Burbank as they do in Los Angeles. The ordinance requires solicitors to file for a permit with airport officials and to only seek donations in designated areas, said Thomas Winfrey, spokesman for Los Angeles World Airports, which is the airport authority for the Los Angeles International Airport.

Bob Hope Airport is a local gem, saving worn gears and frayed nerves for travelers who would otherwise have to navigate Los Angeles International Airport, its overcrowded and service-poor big brother. It turns out passengers seem to generally like our airport as well, giving it fair-to-high marks for accessibility, food and retail options, and security services. Despite all this, Bob Hope slipped three places in the latest small-airport survey from J.D. Power and Associates, dropping to No. 15 among airports with 10 million or fewer annual passengers.

Dot Meyer, in her Feb. 15 Mailbag letter, "People don't even want an airport," does not speak for me. I most certainly do want an airport. I don't want to have to slog over the hill to Los Angeles International Airport to fly to Seattle. By the same token, I don't want half of L.A. slogging over the hill to overcrowd Bob Hope Airport either. The airport is fine just the way it is. It doesn't need to be any bigger. What we need are more auxiliary airports. Why is there none in Santa Barbara or Ventura?

For the first time in more than three years, the number of passengers at Bob Hope Airport increased in March - even if it was by only a slight uptick. A total of 333,647 passengers passed through the airport in March, a 0.27% increase from 332,740 from the same time last year, according to statistics released Monday to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. The slight improvement comes as a sharp contrast to the first two months of the year, when airfield officials reported double-digit declines in passengers.

It's been a rough two years for Bob Hope Airport, where a precipitous drop in the number of passengers using the regional airfield has meant a worrying drop in revenues. Fewer passengers mean fewer receipts at parking lots, concessions and other revenue-generating enterprises that fund operations and pay for badly needed infrastructure upgrades. Assuming what's good for the airport is good for the airlines, the solution seems simple. "If the airlines reduced their rates at Burbank and made it more competitive, there would be more passengers and we'd be in better shape; there's no mystery to this," said Terry Tornek, a member of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority.
