About Burbank-Bob Hope Airport
Hollywood Burbank International Airport changed its name from the Burbank Bob Hope Airport in 2016 and saw over 2 million passengers passing through its doors each year.
Burbank was initially opened in 1930 by the United Airports Company of California, Ltd, where it was called United Airport. During this time, it served as a base for several of Amelia Earhart’s flights, along with several other pioneering aviators. Then, in 1934, its name was changed to Union Air Terminal, before changing again in 1940 to become Lockheed Air Terminal after it was purchased by the
Lockheed Aircraft Company.
This name remained for 27 years until it became Hollywood-Burbank Airport. Over the next 50 years, it went through several more name changes, including the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport (1978) and the Bob Hope Airport (2003), before going back to Hollywood Burbank Airport (without the hyphen this time, though!) in 2016.
Burbank Airport (BUR) Location
Hollywood Burbank Airport is located 3 miles northwest of L.A.’s downtown Burbank and serves the northern part of Los Angeles, including the San Fernando Valley, Pasadena, and Glendale. It’s also much closer to Hollywood and Griffith Park than Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). It is the only airport that’s directly connected to downtown Los Angeles by a rail connection. Even though the airport used to be located within the city limits of Burbank, since Runway 15/33 was extended at the north end, it now goes into part of the city of L.A.
