Officials announced on Thursday that the Hollywood Burbank Airport will receive $30 million in grants to support its modernization efforts.

This funding will aid the construction of a new 14-gate terminal building, replacing the outdated facility constructed in the 1930s, and help to reduce neighborhood noise pollution. Congressman Adam Schiff, who represents Burbank and a portion of West Pasadena, stated that the grant will also help fund a modern and energy-efficient facility, enabling the airport to provide efficient services to the Los Angeles region.

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority operates the Hollywood Burbank Airport, with Vice Mayor Felicia Williams of Pasadena serving as its Vice President, Treasurer Tyron Hampton of Pasadena Council, and former Councilmember Andy Wilson serving as an Airport Authority Commissioner.


The grants were awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Terminal Program, which funds projects such as runway and taxiway improvements, aprons, noise abatement, and safety-related initiatives.

Congressman Schiff expressed his satisfaction with the funding, saying, “I am proud to have fought for additional funding for my hometown airport and will continue to advocate for more funding… I look forward to seeing these initiatives’ positive effects on our community and the surrounding region.”

Congressman Schiff also emphasized the significance of airports as gateways to communities, leaving indelible impressions on all visitors and connecting Californians and tourists to beautiful destinations in the state. With this grant, the Hollywood Burbank Airport is set to become a more modern and energy-efficient facility that serves its community and region well.
