Hobby » Hobby International



In 2012, a historic vote was taken by City Council Members with overwhelming support to call for the establishment of international air service at William P. Hobby Airport.  The plan agreed for the construction of a five-gate facility that would accommodate regional international flights to various locations across Latin America.  Through a partnership with Southwest Airlines, the Houston Airport System is moving forward in facilitating the infrastructure necessary for the establishment of international flight capabilities.






Hobby Airport will soon become an international gateway to Latin America equipped with a five-gate international terminal at an estimated cost of $156 million. It will come complete with a new concourse, Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facility, a new parking garage with 3,000+ spaces and roadway modifications and improvements.







William P. Hobby Airport is Houston's oldest commercial airport and was the City's primary source for air transportation from 1927 to 1969. Throughout the years changes to the City's aviation community eventually moved all international air service to IAH, leaving Hobby as a domestic airport. 

Today, Hobby Airport is handling more passengers than ever before (more than 11 million in 2013) and the airport's future has never looked brighter.  But before we chart the course for Hobby Airport in the 21st Century, please take a moment to look back at the evolution of vital and beloved airport.

It's a story that has it all, an iconic Texas millionaire, a brush with complete closure and a revitalization period that is still scaling new heights today.  Venture through the photos and explore the amazing story of William P. Hobby Airport.

During the expansion of Hobby Airport, several modifications will need to be made that will impact our customers. This section will keep customers informed of the latest impacts.

Currently, roadway modifications, necessary to accommodate the arrival of international air service are now underway.  The work began on Monday, April 28, 2014, and will include a series of lane closures, located primarily on the entry roadway that leads directly to passenger pick-up and drop-off.
