Demand for parking spaces at William P. Hobby Airport is at an all-time high this summer and the availability crunch is especially noticeable during high travel periods such as the July 4th holiday weekend.

As a result, the Houston Airport System (HAS) is encouraging passengers to “Know Before You Go” by visiting the airport’s website,, to check parking availability prior to leaving their home.

It is recommended that if the lots are near full, travelers should consider a drop-off option, whether that includes the utilization of public transportation, car or shuttle service or relying on friends and/or family for a ride to Hobby Airport.  

Hobby Airport is seeing a strong summer travel season and there is a large demand for parking this year. We are working hard to maintain the same high level of customer service to passengers despite the heavy volumes.  The Airport suggests you Know Before You Go and follow these tips:

• Please check parking availability prior to leaving for the airport. We offer parking availability in real-time on our website,, in the bottom left corner, or by calling (281) 233-1730, option zero.

• If parking lots are near full, consider a drop-off option (public transportation, car or shuttle service or relying on friends and/or family for a ride).

• Hobby Airport allows reservations for its valet parking lot that guarantees a space will be available upon arrival at the confirmed time; Click Here for more information.

• Please look for signage on the entry roads that will direct motorists to available off-site parking lots with availability.

Hobby Airport is currently in the construction phase of a new multi-level parking facility that will bring an additional 3,000 spaces to the airport’s inventory when it opens in late 2015. The Airport also expanded its ecopark 2 economy parking lot from 356 to 1,012 spaces last fall.
