George Bush Intercontinental Airport, located near Houston, Texas, is a busy hub for travelers all over the world. Servicing both domestic and international flights, the airport is a bustling environment day in and day out. George Bush Intercontinental Airport opened its doors for the first time in 1969 as Houston Intercontinental Airport (renamed George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the 1980s), and has since served over 40 million passengers. This makes it the eighth busiest airport in the United States, per total passengers passing through.
George Bush Intercontinental Airport is the largest hub for United Airlines, and Continental Airlines built their maintenance center on site in 1990. The airport can be noted for several accomplishments, including a nonstop flight to Lagos. Houston is the sixth city to have A380 (Airbus) service, with flights on Lufthansa. Overall, George Bush Intercontinental Airport ranks third in the nation for nonstop domestic and international flights, with service to 182 destinations in the United States and worldwide.
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport is comprised of five terminal buildings:
This terminal is one of the two original terminals opened in 1969. 20 gates are located within this terminal, with 10 gates at the North Concourse, and 10 gates on the South Concourse.
This terminal is the second of the original terminals. Unlike the other terminals, Terminal B is used solely for United Express flights. There are 37 traditional gates and 20 hardstand gates within this terminal.
Terminal C is the third gate added to the compound at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. It houses two United Clubs and is the main operations terminal for the airline's domestic operations, with 31 gates. Terminal C also houses the airport's interfaith chapel.
Originally opened as the International Arrivals Terminal, terminal D is now the one terminal serving all non-United international flights. It has 12 gates, as well as lounges for various international airlines, including Air France, British Airways, and Lufthansa.
Added in 2002, terminal E is the home of United Airlines' international flights, as well as that of some of the domestic operations. The terminal was designed with flexibility in mind, however, and can service any type of aircraft at its gates.
