Burbank Bob Hope BUR Airport Overview
Bob Hope Airport is located three miles northwest of the central business district of Burbank, in southern California -off Interstate Hwy. 5 (Exit 149); its main entrance is situated past the intersection of Thornton and Hollywood Way.
With two runways and nearly 4M passengers annually , BUR Airport is served by major airlines offering frequent nonstop flights along the West Coast, and direct and connecting flights across the country, including New York City.
NOTE: 1. Passengers can be dropped off at the curb in front of the terminal. TSA security requirements dictate that no waiting is allowed at the curb. It is advisable to drive into the airport on lane 2 and drive past the Terminal A baggage claim for better curb access.
2. Permanent Road Closure involves the half-mile segment of San Fernando Blvd. under I-5, and also the following I-5 ramps: northbound Lincoln Street off-ramp, southbound San Fernando Boulevard on-ramp, and southbound Scott Road off-ramp. Use either Buena Vista St. or Burbank Blvd on- and off-ramps!
The Main Terminal at Bob Hope Burbank Airport is divided into Terminals A & B.
Current and Future Airport Developments:
1. Phase 1 of the new 3-level Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) on Empire Avenue (across from the Airport's train station) - with consolidated rental car faclities, a bus transit station on the ground level; and an elevated moving walkway connecting with the passenger terminal - should be completed by summer 2014. As a consequence, Parking Lot D is closed - use Economy Lot A.
2. In December 2013, Burbank Airport's operator voted to submit a Development Application Package to the Burbank City for a replacement of the current 14-gate terminal & development of the site adjacent to the proposed new terminal. No further news have since been published regarding the same.
