2019 Annual Report - Gateway to Houston
Houston Airports spent 2019 continuing to strengthen our city’s status as the Gateway to the World . . . and Beyond with hard work, determination and dedication. We pushed beyond boundaries to improve the customer experience and support unprecedented growth in international traffic, setting a new standard in world-class travel. International air service to Houston has doubled since 2010, and we now offer access to all six inhabited continents of the world.
In 2019, George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) and William P. Hobby (HOU) airports both achieved 4-star ratings from Skytrax, the world’s premier air transport rating organization, making Houston the only city in the Western Hemisphere with two 4-star airports.
Fifty years ago when Houston Intercontinental Airport opened and Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, we learned that we could soar beyond our own limitations with innovation, vision and perseverance.
As we celebrate these milestones, we continue to focus on helping Houston expand its global connectivity and status as the Gateway to the World . . . and Beyond.
