1930. Herbert Hoover was President.
And Hollywood Burbank Airport was built.

86 years later, Burbank voters
say it’s time for a replacement terminal.

With the approval of Measure B by Burbank voters on November 8, 2016, Hollywood Burbank Airport is working with the community and neighboring cities to build a safer, 14-gate replacement terminal that is farther from the runways and meets current earthquake design standards. The replacement terminal will provide the same convenience and easy access that air travelers now enjoy while providing new amenities. It is a $400 million investment in Burbank at no cost to local taxpayers.

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority estimates the replacement terminal will open in 2022. Over the next three years, from 2017 through 2019, the Airport Authority will conduct soil testing, update the Airport Layout Plan, submit it for Federal Aviation Administration approval, and complete a Federal National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) study.

Later this year, the Airport Authority will also begin a public conceptual design process, with at least six public design meetings (“charrettes”) in Burbank. The terminal design and construction phase, which is anticipated to take place between 2018 and 2022, will include Airport Authority approval of the final design after a public hearing, submission of plans to the City of Burbank for a building permit, and construction of the replacement terminal. The existing terminal is expected to be demolished in 2023, after the opening of the replacement terminal. The Authority will then extend the taxiways.
