Commissioners & Staff

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority is a separate government agency created under a joint powers agreement between the three cities of Burbank, Glendale, and Pasadena in 1977 for the sole purpose of owning and operating Hollywood Burbank Airport.

The mission of the Airport Authority is to provide state-of-the-art regional airport facilities and related services which are efficient, safe, convenient, and user-friendly, while being a good neighbor.

The Authority consists of nine Commissioners, three from each city. The Commissioners from each city are appointed by their city council.
