Houston Hobby Airport Reviews
Houston Hobby Airport also known as William P. Hobby Airport (IATA: HOU, ICAO: KHOU, FAA LID: HOU) is a public airport in Houston, Texas, 7 miles (11 km) from downtown Houston. Hobby is Houston’s oldest commercial airport and was its primary commercial airport until Houston Intercontinental Airport (now George Bush Intercontinental Airport) opened in 1969. After the opening of Intercontinental, Hobby became a secondary airport for domestic airline service as well as a regional center for corporate and private aviation.
Houston is a focus city for Southwest Airlines, and was the seventh-largest city in Southwest’s network as of 2013. Southwest is currently constructing its first international terminal at Hobby, and plans to begin service from Hobby to Mexico and Central and South America in 2015.
The Houston Hobby Airport covers 1,304 acres (528 ha) and has four runways. Its original art deco terminal building, which was the first passenger airline terminal in Houston, now houses the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.
