Bob Hope Airport Looking To New Terminal

BURBANK (AP) — A replacement terminal at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank would be as much as two-thirds larger than the current, decades-old building.

Airport managers want to move the terminal, both to upgrade it and create a safe distance between runways and planes at the gates.

They have the land — but not the permission to build.

Like the current terminal, the new one also would have 14 gates. But under current plans it would be 355,000 square feet — the current building, with its quaint 80-year-old facade, has 211,000 square feet.

Burbank voters would have to approve the project.

A proposal could go to the ballot in the summer of 2015. If voters approve, a new terminal could be operating about six years after that.
