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. Note: 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!
With two runways and about 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: 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.
The Main Terminal at Bob Hope Burbank Airport is divided into Terminals A & B.
Current and Future Airport Developments:
- The new Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) provides seamless connection to airport-, train-, & bus- passengers, and for rental car customers & bicyclists. A 19-foot high covered pedestrian bridge spanning 1,100 feet (with moving walkways) between 'Bob Hope Airport Train Station', across Empire Avenue to the RITC, is the next project.
- In late October 2015 both the city of Burbank and the Airport reached agreement to replace the current and aging terminal with a new 14-gate terminal on 49 acres - adjacent to the runways, south of the Air Cargo terminal and northwest of the current terminal. Pending an environmental study and city-wide vote in Nov. 2016, ground breaking could begin by 2020, with terminal completion by 2023 and demolishion of the old terminal by 2025.
