Burbank Bob Hope Airport seeks more film shoots

Passenger traffic is down at Burbank Bob Hope Airport, but airport officials are hoping there’s more than one way to increase revenues.


After a decade long hiatus, brought about by Sept. 11, the airport is once again seeking to entice filmmakers to shoot at the airport. Done right, this can be a fairly profitable enterprise.

Earlier this month, airport officials say they brought 60 location scouts to Bob Hope for a behind the scenes tour. Among the things that airport officials touted: proximity to many major studios, an easy application process, “reasonable costs,” and a variety of terminal airfield and hanger spaces open for filming.

Airport officials say recent shoots have included the movie “The Bling Ring,” as well episodes of “Arrested Development,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” and Grey’s Anatomy.
