Financial managers for the Burbank Airport have prematurely cashed in a $500,000 certificate of deposit with Gibraltar Savings and forfeited 3 months or $9,300 in interest because they were concerned about the stability of the struggling financial institution. The decision to drop Gibraltar was made last week at the semi-monthly meeting of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which decides how to invest the airport's money.

The Federal Aviation Administration approved a request by Burbank Airport to use $24.2 million in passenger fees toward buying land for a controversial new terminal, airport officials said Thursday.

The Burbank Airport Authority has voted unanimously to renew a contract with a Culver City firm that has operated a valet parking service at the airport for nearly two years.
