I absolutely love this airport! The aesthetic is Beautiful and provides plenty of options for photo ops. 📸 In addition, they have SO MANY Amazing food & bar selections that you will literally not want to leave the airport. 😅 Although, it does seem to always be busy, the lines at security/bag check move swiftly and the staff is generally very friendly, and will help you navigate, as it is easy to get turned around in this airport. Everything is definitely Bigger in Texas! 😉
Great Airport. Very large and fast paced. Big selection of places to grab a bite to eat before your flight. Lots of nice gift shops and clothing stores. The Tram is very fast and will get you to your terminal quickly. Some terminals have a bar in the waiting area, which is great! You can enjoy a couple of ice cold beverages before your flight. 😁👍This Airport serves all the major airline carriers. Very nice restrooms also.. Overall, a great Airport. I highly recommend. 5 Stars Plus !!
Definitely wouldn’t consider this the best airport in the country (world, whatever the sign said approaching the airport). We moved through fairly quickly and we were able to stop at a nice restaurant and have a drink while waiting on our flight. A lot of people walking around without masks on (I personally don’t care but I just feel like if the rule applies for one, it applies for all). Rental cars are off site in a different building, a free shuttle will take you and your bags. Lots of flight gate changes and some of the clerks at the American Airlines ticketing were a little rude but maybe just language barrier.
DO NOT RENT A CAR HERE. I rented my car at least a week in advance and when I arrived to the rental car center, I had to wait 3 hours for my car only for them to not have my car type available and another hour wait from the time I got to the lot to the time the car keys were in my hands. They were telling people if they scheduled a rental pick up 24-48 hrs before, they had no cars available for them. After getting off a long flight and standing in line for an hour, these people are told this.. also, telling people after waiting for hours they aren’t taking debit cards. I never use a debit card for a rental car but for someone who’s only means is debit, they we’re screwed. I don’t blame the airport for this, I blame thrifty because they have too many customers to employees. They can’t keep up but just be advised there is a chance you book a car in advance, PAY, and be told they can’t help you.
Clean, efficient, and friendly. Pretty much what you hope for in an airport.
Good representation for Houston.
The security itself was a bit overwhelming (always is anywhere though!)
But went by super fast, just gotta keep up! Little tip, personal items (wallets phones, laptops, shoes, etc) go in the buckets, bags and everything stay freely on the scanner.
Definitely try to be at the airport 1 hour before the flight boards so you can cover yourself through parking, security and grabbing a bite to eat, etc.
Check out the model of the ISS, super cool little info charts too.
I like the airport and this one is definitely a nice one to make travels happen.
Only a few vendors, we needed coffee.
