Houston Airport System

The Houston Airport System provides a safe and dynamic air services network that fosters economic vitality for the transportation industry and the greater Houston region.

The Houston Airport System has a mission of helping to ensure that its employment, services, and facilities are accessible to the public, customers, and travelers.
To bring air service to Houston's population of more than 5.5 million, the Houston Airport System has three facilities; George Bush Intercontinental Airport, William P. Hobby Airport, and Ellington Airport. The three-airport system served more than 48.5 million passengers in 2009, including more than 7.8 million international travelers.

Together our airports form one of North America's largest public airport systems and position Houston as the international passenger and cargo gateway to the south central United States and a primary gateway to Latin America.

In 1937, as Houston began its ascent to become the energy capital of the world, the city acquired the site of its first major airport, William P. Hobby Airport. As Houston continued to grow so did the Houston Airport System, by adding new airports - George Bush Intercontinental Airport/Houston in 1969, and Ellington Airport in 1984, and expanding and tailoring services to fulfill a wide range of customer needs.

Our airports have advanced and highly technical weather, navigational and landing aids to ensure safe and on-time flight operations in all weather conditions.

No customer is too big, or too small, for the Houston Airport System. Our airfields handle any type of aircraft, even those as large as the Antonov 225 on runways that extend up to 12,000 feet, and we will be able to accommodate any aircraft produced for commercial use far into the foreseeable future.

Landing on our airfields are jumbo jets, home built aircraft, luxurious corporate jets, crop dusters and seemingly every model of airplane in between. Customers operating these aircraft vary from commercial passenger, air cargo and commuter carriers; corporate and general aviation; and the Armed Forces; to NASA and aerospace related businesses. Most importantly all of our flying customers, regardless of the size of their fleets, have access to the same high quality, specialized aviation services found throughout the Houston Airport System.

It is uncommon to find such progressive corporate strategies as diversification, market specialization and personalized customer service inherent in the management of a publicly owned agency. But the City of Houston Department of Aviation, which operates and maintains the Houston Airport System, is an exception to the rule amongst the public sector, choosing to apply these private sector business philosophies as core values to managing publicly owned airports.

While the airports represent a significant contribution to Houston and the surrounding communities' economies, they do not burden the local tax base to pay for operations, maintenance or capital improvements. Rather the system accomplishes financial self-sufficiency by deriving income from fees, rentals, and other charges. Surpluses generated are reinvested into capital development and bond retirement. At the same time according to a 2003 economic impact study these airports support over 151,000 regional jobs and contribute over $24 billion to the local economy.

The Houston Airport System has a mission of helping to ensure that its employment, services, and facilities are accessible to the public, customers, and travelers. J.
