Houston Airports has announced Air France, Emirates, Qatar Airways and United Airlines have joined nearly a dozen other air carriers that have resumed international service to Houston following the travel decline created by COVID-19, the company said.
The latest air carrier service restorations mark Houston´s rebound in connectivity to European, Middle Eastern and Latin American destinations. Nearly two-thirds of the airlines providing international service at George Bush Intercontinental airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby airport (HOU) have now been restored following a sharp decline of air service due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Texas, Houston has the most airlines providing service to Mexico. Some airlines — VivaAerobus and Volaris — are adding new service to select destinations they had not previously served from Houston.
Houston Airports is the City of Houston´s Department of Aviation. Comprised of George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) and Ellington Airport (EFD)/Houston Spaceport, Houston Airports served nearly 60 million passengers in 2019. Houston Airports form one of North America´s largest public airport systems and position Houston as the international passenger and cargo gateway to the South Central United States and a primary gateway to Latin America.
