Houston Bush International Airport Information

The Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas, is one of the largest airports in the United States. The airport originally was named Houston Intercontinental Airport. After two years of delays, it opened in 1969. Passengers and flights from neighboring William P. Hobby Airport were diverted to Houston Bush when it opened. A number of years later, the airport was officially renamed the George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Terminals A and B are the original terminals of the airport. Terminal A was remodeled back in 2002 and has 30 gates. Terminal B is currently being renovated at this time. In 1981, Terminal C opened thus expanding the airport and bringing in more domestic flights to the city. Terminal D, which is known to some as the Mickey Leland Arrivals Building, opened back in 1990 and receives many international flights. Terminal E was completed in 2004 and receives the rest of the international flights.

A quick way for travelers to get in and around all five of the terminals is a train called TerminaLink. TerminaLink began connecting passengers between Terminals B and C back in 1999. Two years later, it connected Terminal C to Terminal D. In 2010, TerminaLink was expanded to Terminal A. Though TerminaLink does not have a station at Terminal E, it does connect to it through Terminal D.

The intercontinental airport in Houston had over 40 million passengers in 2011. It is the 10th busiest airport in North America. About 800 flights depart from it each day. In addition to this, it has an excellent record of on-time flights.

One area of the airport, which is often overlooked by many, is the Interfaith Chapel. The Interfaith Chapel has been in operation since the airport began in 1969 and serves the spiritual needs of people from the United States and the rest of the world. In addition to serving passengers, the Interfaith Chapel serves the workers at the airport. The Chaplain and volunteers of the chapel serve people of every religion. The chapel is currently located in Terminal C.

For folks who are looking to park their cars at Bush Intercontinental Airport, there are over 25,000 spaces which to choose from. Visitors can choose to park their cars in covered parking or in uncovered parking. In addition to this, valet parking is available. According to the airport, it has one of the very lowest parking rates in the nation.
