Traveling to Houston has never been easier. As the country's fourth largest airport system, the Houston Airport System serves over 180 cities worldwide, with Bush Intercontinental Airport ranking third in the United States among airports with scheduled non-stop domestic and international service.
The Houston Airports received a boost of confidence this week when not one, but two of Houston’s airports were named the “Best in America” by the readers of Travel + Leisure in a national survey.
According to Travel + Leisure magazine readers, George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) are ranked No. 1 for Best Airports in the Country as world travelers were asked to rate 35 U.S. airports on a variety of topics.
As with any airport, it can be difficult to navigate Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) without some degree of difficulty. Bush IAH is composed of five Terminals (A-E) with Continental Airlines being its major airline. A new tram system has been built to service Terminals A-E and is running about 70% of the time. Parking at Bush IAH isn't always easy and neither is getting through security. However, you'll find that Bush IAH has great customer service and a very reasonable layout. In operation since 1969, Bush IAH is located north of Houston off I-45 and Beltway 8. I worked at Bush IAH for one summer and I learned just about everything you need to know about navigation.
