PLAN AHEAD: Passengers should arrive to airport early, limited airport personnel after Hurricane Beryl

Because of significant power outages, limited cell service and widespread cleanup across Houston, some airport employees are not able to make it to work. It’s critical that the public understand that airport workers were also impacted by the hurricane.
  • Passengers should anticipate extended TSA wait times and longer than normal lines at ticketing counters, concessions and parking facilities.
  • Extended lines may be frustrating, but please know lines are moving. 

    As of 7 p.m., July 8, Houston Airports has restored operations after a deadly Hurricane Beryl forced airlines to cancel flights earlier in the day at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU). 

Delays and cancellations are still possible. Passengers should stay in close communication with their airlines while continuing to check on the status of their flights. 

We ask passengers to extend patience and understanding as the airports may experience extended TSA and ticketing lines, limited concessions, amenities and essential services in the immediate days after Hurricane Beryl.
