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.
