If you're planning a trip to Southern California, let Orbitz.com find you flights to Burbank that fit your budget. Located in Los Angeles County, Burbank is billed as the Media Capital of the World because many of the large production companies, including NBC, ABC, The Walt Disney Company and Nickelodeon, have their headquarters or production studios in the city. Tourists can look forward to touring movie studios, shopping along the San Fernando Strip and playing a round of golf at the De Bell Municipal Golf Course.
Flying into Burbank
Your plane will land at the Burbank Bob Hope Airport, which is located at 2627 North Hollywood Way, approximately 3 miles from the city's center. Because it's the only airport in the L.A. area with a direct rail connection to downtown Los Angeles, it's also a good alternative for those who want to avoid flying into the crowded Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Several airlines provide flights to Burbank, including Delta Connection, JetBlue Airways and US Airways. Taxicabs line up near the pedestrian islands, directly in front of the terminal. Alternatively, you can take the bus to downtown Burbank for $1 or ride the Metrolink train for $5.25. Alamo, Avis, Hertz and National have car rental counters at the airport if you'd rather rent a car for your trip. You can save time by reserving your rental vehicle with Orbitz.com before you arrive in Burbank.
