United to Break Burbank Curfew With 11:15 p.m. Flight

October 19, 2000

BURBANK — Ignoring the voluntary 10 p.m. curfew at Burbank Airport, United Airlines has scheduled a new flight that will land about 11:15 p.m. nightly.

There are a few other regular flights that land in Burbank after the voluntary curfew, but the United flight from San Francisco will be the latest scheduled arrival, airport officials said Wednesday.

The flight is set to begin Oct. 31 and will be available six nights a week, officials said.

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority has asked United to rethink its decision to add the late-night flight. United spokesman Joe Hopkins said the airline will consider the authority's request, but noted there are several other flights that break the curfew.

"We are sensitive to the community's needs and we are going to review it," Hopkins said.

There are currently two flights from Southwest Airlines and one America West that land after 10 p.m., airport spokesman Victor J. Gill said.

About 20 more flights a month break the voluntary late-night curfew because of delayed arrivals due to weather, mechanical or other problems, Gill said.
