The Promising Young Woman actor, clad in a black hoodie, slacks and cap, trailed behind Phoebe with a duffle bag slung across his body.
At one point, he placed a comforting hand upon her back as they made their way through the transport hub before eventually making their way through security.
Their latest sighting together comes after recent reports that they have been spotted ‘making out’ and ‘canoodling’ around Los Angeles, following her shock split from Paul Mescal, according to the Deux U podcast.
Last week, Bridgers and Burnham posed for a bizarre photo together, which showed her kissing Matthew Healy as he stood behind them with his eyes closed.

Bridgers and Mescal, known for his starring role on Normal People, sparked engagement rumors earlier this year before recently calling it quits.
They first went Instagram official with their relationship last December, with a very loved-up image of the two of them.

Meanwhile, Bridgers announced the death of her father earlier this month on Instagram.
The singer shared the news in an Instagram post by sharing a picture of herself when she was younger listening to music with her dad by her side.
Phoebe captioned the snap ‘rest in peace dad’ and didn’t share any further more information about her dad or his passing.

In a previous interview with GQ, the star revealed they had a complicated relationship.
Phoebe’s parents divorced when she was 20 and she had claimed her carpenter dad struggled with drug problems and had also been abusive when she was younger.
She wrote her song Kyoto about him and opened up about the meaning of its lyrics in an interview with NPR in 2020, saying her dad was ’emotionally unavailable, but very present in a weird way’.
Phoebe added the song represents her letting go of anger she felt, saying: ‘It’s nice to not feel, like, emotionally trapped all the time with stuff that you carry into your life.
‘Like, I think I was angry for a long time, and… the song is basically about, like, not being angry anymore.’
