Houston Hobby Airport - hat keychains

In October, 2015, Houston’s Hobby Airport will celebrate the opening of its international terminal, featuring a new concourse with 5 gates (but space for up to 12), a Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facility, a new parking garage with more than 3000 spaces and assorted roadway modifications and improvements.

The $156 million project is a joint effort between HOU and Southwest Airlines, currently the airport’s largest carrier, which will initially operate four of the five gates in the new terminal with plans to add flights to and from several cities in Mexico, Costa Rica and Belize. Southwest currently serves Aruba from HOU.

Here are some pictures from a recent hard hat tour of the terminal:
