1930. Herbert Hoover was President.
And Burbank Bob Hope Airport was built.
86 years later,
it’s time for a replacement terminal.
The terminal location doesn’t meet current FAA safety standards for distance from runways. Portions of the terminal don’t meet current earthquake design standards.
Now, Burbank Bob Hope Airport is working with the Burbank community and neighboring cities to build a safer, 14-gate replacement terminal that is farther from the runways and meets current earthquake design standards, with the same convenience and easy access that Burbank residents and all air travelers now enjoy while providing new amenities typically available in modern terminals – at no cost to the Burbank taxpayers. The Airport will maintain the same number of gates (14) as well as its efforts to protect neighboring communities.
