Long Beach: Continuing to Invest in our Airport
The Californer/10189055

Release Date: 2022-04-27

Today we celebrated an incredible milestone for our city and our airport by opening a new ticketing lobby and checked baggage inspection system. We already have one of the best airports anywhere in the country, and these improvements — along with the rest of our Phase II projects — are continuing to make Long Beach an amazing place to fly.

In addition to improving the experience and safety of residents and visitors, I'm also glad to see our airport continuing to make sustainability a priority by building this facility to be on track for LEED Silver certification. We've set ambitious targets to reduce airport emissions 20% by 2025 and 40% by 2035 — and making investments like this in green new facilities is a huge part of that work.

This Saturday, the Airport is hosting a free, public open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with tours of the new ticketing lobby, family-friendly activities, music and light refreshments. I encourage members of our community to join us in celebrating this amazing step forward for our airport and for our city.

Thank you and Go Long Beach,

Mayor Robert Garcia
