A Day in the Life: Airport Operations

What is OPS? Airport Operations, or more commonly referred to as "OPS" is a department within the airport tasked with coordinating the day to day operations of the airport. The responsibilities of a larger airport operations department are traditionally separated in to two job roles "landside" and "airside." This separation does exist for the Long Beach Airport (LGB) operations team, however they do switch between the two roles as needed. Air-side responsibilities can include taxiway/runway inspections, airfield patrol, clearing foreign object debris (FOD), and wildlife management. Land-side responsibilities can include facility inspections (including parking facilities), maintaining relationships with the airlines, maintenance coordination, and ensuring a smooth passenger flow in the terminal. Airport OPS is constantly working throughout the day to ensure that travelers have a seamless and safe experience at LGB. Our Day with LGB Airpor
