Long Beach residents will be able fly again once the state Department of Aviation allows the program.
The program, which is designed to allow people to fly from Long Beach to Los Angeles, will be expanded to allow residents of Long Beach and the city of Santa Monica to fly.
Long Beach has been plagued by a number of recent weather related events, including a record-setting cold snap last week that knocked out power and communications, and a heat wave that left more than 200 people homeless.
In June, a heatwave caused about $300 million in damage to businesses in the city, including the Long Beach Aquarium.
Aerial photos taken by the Long Island Air Pollution Control Board in June show a thick blanket of fog over Long Beach, with parts of the city and coastal areas shrouded in the thick haze.
