How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Burbank
Travelers to Los Angeles have several options for airports to use. Los Angeles International Airport might be the largest, but Bob Hope Airport (airport code BUR) in Burbank is an increasingly popular choice as well. It is not as busy as LAX, and depending on your ultimate destination Burbank might be closer to where you are going than Los Angeles’ biggest airport. Burbank’s airport also uses those cool stairways to board planes rather than enclosed bridges, so you may feel like you have gone back in time. And if the airport terminal looks familiar, that might be because it was the stand-in for the “Berlin Flughafen” in the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
