Houston has two major airports - George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Houston Hobby (HOU) - and is a destination for all major airlines. Visit the Houston Airport System website for air travel information.


Since the Houston city seal prominently displays a train, it seems only right to provide information about getting here by rail.
