the only airport in the area with a direct rail connection to downtown Los Angeles. Non-stop flights go mostly to cities in the western United States, but JetBlue Airways has a daily red-eye flight to New York.
The airport was originally in the city limits, but the north end of Runway 15/33 has been extended into the city of Los Angeles.
The airport is owned by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, controlled by the governments of those cities. The Airport Authority contracts with TBI Airport Management, Inc. to operate the airport. TBI Airport Management was acquired by ADC & HAS Airports Worldwide in July 2013 with the transaction closing on October 1, 2013. The airport has its own police department, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police. Boarding uses airstairs or ramps rather than jet bridges.
