On July 14th, LGB held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the brand new $41 million parking garage that was set to open July 15th. The parking garage was not only finished two months ahead of schedule but it came in under budget which is great news. The final project now that is being worked on is the brand new passenger terminal which is about to break ground here in the next couple of weeks.
On Saturday July t6th, JetBlue operated two round trip flights from Burbank to Long Beach. I was able to fly on the first round trip flight and the photos above are a sample from the bunch that I took that day. Our flight 405 from BUR to LGB was 18 minutes long and we flew at 9,000 ft. The return flight 406 LGB to BUR was 15 minutes long and we flew at 5,000 ft. JetBlue served food at both Burbank and Long Beach and made the quick flights fun for the passengers. I know that a lot of people hope we will do these flight again next year when the 405 gets closed again. Looks like we will have to wait and see.
