The Burbank Airport has changed a lot over the years; mainly its steady growth has increased, and its name has changed almost half a dozen times since its conception. People have pretty much always called it the Burbank Airport, or BUR for short, though now its official name is the "Bob Hope Airport"; it was recently changed from a much longer name in 2007. Over the years, two films, one starring Elizabeth Taylor, and one music video have been filmed at the famous airport; it caters to Hollywood because it's closer than LAX. These days the airport has its very own police station, and is now over six hundreds acres sprawling in size. The idea of finding a Burbank airport parking space somewhere in all that is enough to make one shudder.

But don't shudder, --don't even cringe! There are ways to have your cake, and eat it too; at least in terms of parking your car. There's more to getting ready for a flight than just grabbing your ticket, and your favorite rolling luggage.

If you end up just showing up at the parking service on the day of your flight, you will have to wait, fill out paperwork, maybe go to another lot, and the longer it takes, the more likely you are to miss your flight. That's why making early reservations, and using these tips, is so important. Get organized before you fly, and you can't go wrong!
