Bob Hope Airport is a public airport located 3 miles (5 km) northwest of the central business district of Burbank, a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. It was formerly known as Angeles Mesa Drive Airport (1928 1930), United Airport (1930 1934), Union Air Terminal (1934 1940), Lockheed Air Terminal (1940 1967), Hollywood-Burbank Airport (1967 1978), Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport (1978 2003) and most recently Bob Hope Airport (2003 present).

The airport serves the Los Angeles area including Glendale, Pasadena, and the San Fernando Valley. It is also closer to Griffith Park and Hollywood than is Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and is the only airport in the greater Los Angeles area with a direct rail connection to downtown Los Angeles. Non-stop flights from the airport go mostly to destinations within the western United States but service also includes Dallas/Fort Worth and New York City. The airport covers 610 acres (2.5 km2) and has two runways. The west end of Runway 8/26 and the north end of Runway 15/33 actually stretch into the City of Los Angeles.

The airport is owned by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which is controlled by the governments of the three cities in its name. The Airport Authority contracts with TBI Airport Management, Inc. to operate the airport. The airport maintains its own police department, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police. Boarding uses airstairs or ramps rather than jet bridges, unlike most major airports.
