The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide a passenger terminal serving the Burbank market segment that meets all current FAA standards as well as the CBC requirements. The Proposed Action, as described below, would further enhance airport safety at BUR by meeting FAA standards consistent with the FAA Advisory Circular 150/5300-13A, Change 1, Airport Design, and the FAA’s regulations on the Safe, Efficient Use and Preservation of the Navigable Airspace, described in, 14 C.F.R. Part 77. The proposed replacement passenger terminal would be properly separated from the runways and maintain adequate ROFA, TOFA and BRL standards.

Why Update the Airport Now?

The central portion of the existing terminal was built in 1930, and the structure does not meet current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards (as specified in Title 14, CFR Part 77, Safe, Efficient Use and Preservation of the Navigable Airspace and FAA Advisory Circular 150/5300-13A, Change 1, Airport Design). In addition, FAA standard practice is to limit the number of runway crossings a taxiing aircraft must make to minimize the opportunity for incursions (any occurrence at an airport that involves the incorrect presence of an object in a protected area designated for landing or departing aircraft) on the airfield and to maintain operational airfield capacity.  

Proposed Action

The Proposed Action, represented visually in the maps below, includes replacement of the existing 14-gate passenger terminal, located in the southeast quadrant of the Airport, with a new 14-gate passenger terminal in the northeast quadrant (also known as the former Lockheed-Martin B-6 Plant site) of the Airport. The existing passenger terminal would be demolished, and parallel Taxiways A and C would be extended full length to the ends of Runways 15-33 and 08-26, respectively.
