We taxpayers won’t have to pay for this terminal right?
Well yes and no. True, Burbank taxpayers will not pay for the airport directly, until you USE the airport. Parking fees, landing fees, federal taxes and FAA grants and other income at the site will pay for the new terminal. But what if the project goes over budget? Fees on each airline ticket will likely go up. When this happens our airport could become even less competitive with LAX. It’s a bad business model and passengers will either pay extra fees or use alternatives.
