Long Beach Municipal Airport is located in Long Beach, California, and to a degree, serves Los Angeles, California. Its IATA Airport Code is LGB.
Long Beach Municipal is very small, and will probably always remain a small airport due to anti-noise ordinances adopted to minimize noise in the residential neighborhoods near LGB. Environmentalists do not want the airport to expand, and environmentalists happen to have a very strong political voice in Southern California. FedEx and UPS maintain extensive operations out of LGB.
The Boeing Company maintains production facilities for their 717 commercial jetliner as well as the C-17 military transport jet; maintenance facilities for other Boeing aircraft (including the historic DC-9 and DC-10 aircraft) are also found at Long Beach Airport.
