Inside the airport entrance, you will find the ticket counter. This counter may also serve as an information and help desk. No formal help desk can be found here, however, there are some digital screens displaying all details of arriving and departing flights. The main terminal’s bathrooms are rather small, so if you want to use a bigger bathroom, go to the ones located near the JetBlue and SouthWest gates.
As for food and shopping options, this airport doesn’t feature much of them. Those looking for something to eat or drink may buy some snacks from the small airport terminal. The only shopping options here are the typical newsstands and souvenir shops. Overall, the look and feel of BUR is nice and a little bit nostalgic. It is a cozy little airport after all!
