January 25, 2024, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority (BGPAA) broke ground on a new, safer, modern, and more convenient passenger terminal at Hollywood Burbank Airport. The project is known as “Elevate BUR.”
More than 250 community leaders and local stakeholders came together to celebrate the start of construction for this historic project.
New Amenities: The new terminal will offer a variety of options for shopping and dining, upgraded restrooms, and more space to move about. A new ticketing lobby, baggage screening system, updated TSA checkpoint and new baggage claim area will make traveling easier.
Improved Access & Safety: The safety of our passengers and employees is our priority. The design of the new facility includes added distance between airport runways and the terminal building. It also includes updates to meet current earthquake design and ADA accessibility standards. For passengers, we’re including a 45,900-square-foot aircraft parking area for boarding and deplaning, a new parking structure with EV charging, and a new on-airport access road.
Sustainable Solutions: As part of our commitment to air emissions reduction and sustainability, the new terminal is designed to reduce the airport’s overall emissions and achieve a minimum of LEED Silver certification. Sustainable features include electrical vehicle charging, electric ground service equipment airside, water use reduction connections to our regional transit network among many other features.

Construction of the new terminal is expected to take place from 2024 to 2026. The BGPAA is committed to minimizing construction impacts and keeping passengers and the community informed about construction. For more information, please visit elevatebur.com/info.
