History of BUR


The Hollywood Burbank Airport opened on Memorial Day in 1930 as the United Airport and quickly became the main airport for the growing greater Los Angeles region. In 1940, Lockheed purchased the airport to expand its facilities in preparation for World War II, renaming the airport the Lockheed Air Terminal. Commercial operations continued while the company built war aircraft such as the P-38 Lightning, the B-17 and Hudson bombers. Service picked up at Burbank in the 1960s with the introduction of jet airliners capable of using shorter runways. In 1978, a joint airport authority created by the cities of Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena purchased the airport, which remains today a popular gateway for many of Hollywood’s famed entertainers and corporate clients.

Benefitting an Economy Near You


It is estimated that the activities attributable to the Hollywood Burbank Airport generate economic output in Los Angeles County of more than $1.8 billion and support 12,440 jobs annually. Serving almost 4 million passengers on more than 50,000 commercial flights during the 2013 fiscal year, the airport was fifth busiest in Southern California and ranked 61st in the nation in terms of commercial passenger enplanements. In 2012, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Authority commenced construction of the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC), housing consolidated rental car facilities and connecting passengers and visitors to local passenger transit services. The RITC is the largest capital project undertaken by the Authority, with cumulative expenditures of more than $112 million through its completion in 2014.

Get into the Green Scene


The Authority opened a Regional Intermodal Transportation Center in 2014 that encourages greater use of public transit, reduces traffic on nearby streets, and features a CNG fueling facility for its shuttle bus fleet that is also open to members of the public driving CNG vehicles. In 2005, the Airport implemented a Clean Air program, under which it installed battery chargers for electric ground service equipment at all 14 aircraft parking positions at the terminal. That installation allowed the airlines to replace much of their diesel and gasoline-powered equipment with electrified equipment, resulting in reduced air pollution. The Authority's waste disposal provider recycles up to two-thirds of the Airport's waste stream, preventing it from ever reaching a landfill.
