Monterey Airport Runway Safety Area (RSA) Improvements

MRYMonterey Regional Airport
Runway Safety Area (RSA) Improvements Project

RSA Project Update:

In preparation for the installation of the Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) material, the construction work will begin to impact the Airport Operations Area. In order to maintain safety for both aircraft and the construction crews, there will be operational impacts occurring between January 19, 2015 and March 19, 2015. The runway will be open throughout the project for all commercial flights (barring unforeseen circumstances) and any work that requires a runway shut down will be done at night with a runway closure. We will continue to provide updates as more specific information is available or if the status changes. We appreciate your support and patience as we continue to improve your Airport.

slo airportAirline industry’s focus on major routes challenges SLO airport’s growth plan– Faced with loss of some air service in recent years, an airline industry in flux and about 60 percent of travelers flying out of Los Angeles or the Bay Area, attracting new airlines and adding routes to San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport is an ongoing challenge with no easy fix.

“There’s no one factor,” said Kevin Bumen, general manager of the airport. “And this isn’t something that’s unique to San Luis Obispo.”

Bob Hope Airport could try old name to boost traffic

burbankComedian Bob Hope might not find humor in a promotional campaign proposed for the regional airport named after him.

Nationwide demand for air travel has been on the rise, but you wouldn’t know it by visiting Bob Hope Airport. Passenger traffic was flat for the first ten months of 2014, after two years of declining numbers, according to airport statistics.

One possible reason for the lackluster flier traffic, according to airport officials, is that many out-of-town travelers don’t know that Bob Hope Airport is located in Burbank, less than 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
