Houston is large enough to have two airports, which means area residents can fly almost anywhere in the world from our city.
For Sienna residents, Hobby Airport is the closest, and its four airlines can take travelers to more than 55 destinations around the world. Plus, Hobby Airport is the only 5-Star Airport in North America after attaining that status earlier this year in the Skytrax World Airport Star Rating. Airports are rated from one to five stars after a detailed audit analysis of facilities and customer service across all front-line areas of the airport.
Houston’s second airport — Bush Intercontinental Airport — maintains its 4-star rating (also pretty impressive!). If you’re traveling out of Bush this year, however, you’re going to want to allow for extra time as the airport is under construction. In fact, airlines are recommending you arrive three full hours before all domestic lights and four for international travel. Now I will tell you, we just got back from Cabo, and although I flew into Hobby, some in our group did go to Bush and did not take that advice but had no issues. I’ve heard reports, however, of others not so lucky, so with air travel expected to pick up in June and July, I’d take the advice seriously. When the construction is complete sometime in 2024, our busy Bush Intercontinental Airport will be one of the best in the country! Until then, make sure to pack your patience.
