Here is some information about Burbank Airport from Wikipedia:
Bob Hope Airport (IATA: BUR) is located three miles (5 km) northwest of the central business district of Burbank, a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The airport was formerly known as Angeles Mesa Drive Airport (1928–1930),United Airport (1930–1934), Union Air Terminal (1934–1940), Lockheed Air Terminal (1940–1967), Hollywood-Burbank Airport (1967–1978), Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport (1978–2003) and most recently Bob Hope Airport (2003-present).

The airport serves the Los Angeles area including Glendale, Pasadena, and the San Fernando Valley. It is also closer to Griffith Park and Hollywood than is Los Angeles International Airport, and is the only airport in the greater Los Angeles area with a direct rail connection to downtown Los Angeles. Non-stop flights from the airport go mostly to destinations within the western United States but service also includes Dallas/Fort Worth and New York City. Bob Hope Airport covers 610 acres (2.5 km²) and has two runways. The west end of Runway 8/26 and the north end of Runway 15/33 actually stretch into the City of Los Angeles.

It is owned by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which is controlled by the governments of the three cities in its name. The Airport Authority contracts with TBI Airport Management, Inc. to operate the airport.

Bob Hope Airport maintains its own police department (Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police), separate from the Burbank Police Department.

BUR has public Wi-Fi provided by both AT&T and T-Mobile.

Boarding uses airstairs or ramps rather than jet bridges, unlike most major airports.
