Burbank Airport Status Update as of Thursday, September 13, 2001, 10:30 A.M.:

Although the FAA has reopened the nation’s airspace, Burbank Airport has yet to receive final clearance from the FAA to operate, and the prospects for scheduled flights today are very limited.

It cannot be overemphasized that travelers are best advised to seek specific information from the airlines before coming to the airport.

Southwest Airlines, which provides 65% of the scheduled flights on a normal day at Burbank, has stated it will offer NO flights at Burbank today.  Neither will American Airlines.  There is some discussion by the remaining carriers of possibly offering VERY LIMITED service by this evening, but no flights have been confirmed at this time.

Press statements listed below on this website provide background information on events leading up to today, including the additional security measures passengers should expect when scheduled flights do resume.
