LOS ANGELES, CA, April 17 / MARKET WIRE/ --
The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners today approved the waiver of daily film permit fees at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Ontario International Airport (ONT), Palmdale Regional Airport (PMD) and Van Nuys Airport (VNY). The action covers motion picture filming and commercial still photography and is in accordance with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's commitment to make Los Angeles a "film friendly" city.
The four airports owned and operated by Los Angeles World Airports have long been popular filming sites for the film industry. Today's Board action rescinds the $50 daily charge for filming with a cast, crew and extras of less than five people, as well as the $100 daily charge for filming with a cast, crew and extras of more than five people. All other terms of the LAWA Film Policy will remain the same.
