Houston Airport system is embarking on an ambitious project to modernize the George Bush International Airport’s international terminal and further cement Houston as a global city. The IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program, also known as ITRP, is the largest expansion program in the 53-year history of Bush Airport and builds on a series of previous renovation programs. The program budget is approximately $1.43 billion and is anticipated to be completed in early 2025.
The ITRP effort was undertaken to develop additional facilities in support of aging infrastructure and unprecedented growth in international traffic at Bush Airport. The program will support international flight operations for United Airlines and more than a dozen foreign flag carriers. Additional international gates will accommodate continued international airline growth and larger, widebody aircraft.
The program will improve current and future roadway and curbside capacity constraints in the central terminal area, improve baggage handling system capacity and reliability challenges, and significantly improve the overall guest experience for every international passenger.
