Laura Sturza Passengers with tickets for United Airlines flights from Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport will depart as scheduled, but starting Sunday, travelers flying to Denver and San Francisco will have additional flight options. Some United Express flights to those destinations will be on smaller, 50-seat regional jets that are an upgrade from traditional turbo-propeller planes because they are faster, quieter and more spacious, United Airlines spokesman Chris Braithwaite said.

BURBANK — In another round of sour news for Bob Hope Airport, US Airways announced plans to lay off 600 workers and shift to outside contractors at airports in Burbank, Long Beach and seven other cities. The carrier informed employees in a memo Tuesday that it will eliminate 600 airport service and baggage-handling positions in an effort to cut costs after peak travel ends in September. The biggest cut will be 340 customer-service agents slated to lose their jobs Sept. 14, company officials said.

AIRPORT DISTRICT ? Southwest Airlines, which accounts for two-thirds of passenger traffic at Bob Hope Airport, will phase out 12% of its weekly flights by September, airport officials said. The carrier?s decision to trim 82 flights from its weekly schedule is expected to further decrease already-declining passenger numbers at the commuter hub. The drop from 712 to 630 weekly flights will mean a 6% reduction in the total weekly flights leaving the airport. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority this week presented the proposal to airport commissioners.
