Overall, Houston’s three airports serve more than 55 million passengers a year, including almost 9 million international passengers.
Houston’s “close-in” original airport, Hobby Airport is located off the Gulf Freeway, just outside the 610 Loop. Recently improved with extensive renovations, Hobby now offers international flights to Latin America and the Caribbean, along with extensive domestic U.S. service. Hobby’s original Art Deco building has been transformed into the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. For more information visit www.1940airterminal.org.
Houston’s “big” airport, George Bush Intercontinental, is located 23 miles north of Downtown. With five terminals and 20 scheduled passenger airlines to hundreds of destinations worldwide, IAH is the second busiest airport in Texas, and the 12th busiest in North America. In May 2016, IAH achieved a quality 4-star rating from Skytrax (one of only 3 U.S. airports).
Ellington Airport, a former military airport located 15 miles southeast of Downtown, is geared toward commercial aviation.
