Houston Airport System (HAS) continues to enhance traveler experiences by reaching renovation milestones.

New Parking Spaces

Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) recently announced the opening of over 600 new parking spaces.

These spaces are located across two new levels of the Terminal C/D/E Parking Garage and are part of the IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program, which will result in a new terminal at IAH. 

“Houston Airports just welcomed a record-setting 60.1 million passengers in 2023, and with more destinations and more flights connecting more of the world to Houston, it’s imperative that Houston Airports continue to expand and enhance its infrastructure to meet growing demand for a world-class airport experience,” said Jim Szczesniak, Director of Aviation for Houston Airport System in an online news release.

Parking spaces can be reserved 12 hours before arriving to the garage, which will help to streamline customer experience.

$30 Million Restroom Upgrades

HAS also plans to enhance airport guest experience through  a $30 million restroom renovation, providing upgrades to Bush Intercontinental Airport and Hobby Airport.

“We are committed to exceeding expectations and ensuring that Houston Airports offers a world-class travel experience for all passengers. The restroom renovation project is a significant step toward achieving that goal,” said Szczesniak in a recent news release.  

The upgrades include enhanced efficiency, comfort, and convenience, in which restroom stalls will be larger, and will include space for a carry-on suitcase, as well as a shelf for personal belongings.
