In 1937, as Houston began its ascent to become the energy capital of the world, the city acquired the site of its first major commercial airport, William P. Hobby Airport.

As the City of Houston continued to grow so did the Houston Airport System, adding George Bush Intercontinental Airport in 1969 and Ellington Airport in 1984.  Today, George Bush Intercontinental Airport serves as the premier long-haul international airport facility, while Ellington Airport supports both general aviation flights as well as a host of government/military operations. Hobby Airport opened an international concourse and welcomed back international service in October 2015, serving destinations in Latin American and the Caribbean.
