Flying from Houston

There are two major airports that serve Houston and the surrounding communities: George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), located 23 miles north of downtown, and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), located 7 miles from downtown.

Bush Intercontinental Airport is served by dozens of US and international airlines (including United Airlines, for which it is a hub) and offers non-stop flights to more than 180 destinations in the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America. The airport noteworthy because it has flights to 31 Mexican destinations—including Mexico City, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta—which is more than any other airport in the United States.

Hobby Airport is anchored by low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines, making it a popular airport for travelers seeking cheap flights. Among the most popular destinations that can be reached from Hobby: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas and New Orleans.

Big-City Getaways

When Houstonians travel, other big cities are frequent destinations.

Love the bright lights and big city? Consider a vacation in Las Vegas (a 3 hour flight), Los Angeles (3.5 hour flight) or New York City (3.5 hour flight). Each of these cities has renowned restaurants, world-class shopping, non-stop nightlife and a host of cultural attractions.

Fun with the Family

Thanks in part to its famous amusement parks, Orlando is always a popular destination for Texans—particularly those with children. Flights are available from both Hobby (on AirTran Airways and Southwest) and Bush Intercontinental (on Spirit Airlines and United). If price is an issue, be sure to check flights out of both airports to see which has cheaper tickets.
