The Brutalist architecture of terminals A, B and C, while indeed gnarly, should probably be done away in form of more modern styles.

B South is done and B North will start soon. C North will be upgraded with the new Terminal D. A and C South did have improvements made several years back.

C check in and part of baggage claim got a bit of an upgrade a while back with redesigned check-in areas, enlarged security processing, and added a new baggage carousel.

EK will be sending their A380 to IAH starting 03December14, making it the second A380 carrier to serve the airport after LH. Gate D9 is in the process of being converted into the A380-ready gate.

That same day, the City of Houston unanimously approved the go ahead for the new Terminals C-North and D to get underway.

Scandinavian Airlines Arrives in Houston

Quote:
August 20, 2014

Houston – Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is now connecting Houston, Texas with Stavanger, Norway through nonstop air service, a move that’s expected to significantly strengthen the economic and cultural ties that already exist between two leading players within the oil and gas industry.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker will be celebrating the arrival of SAS on August 22 by utilizing the new air service herself, flying to the Scandinavian region in order to take part in a major oil exhibition. Her departure comes just two days after the airline’s inaugural flight.

“Scandinavian Airlines is establishing a key route for the Houston market and they’re doing so in a unique manner,” Mayor Parker says. “This aircraft is specifically designed to accommodate the needs of the business traveler, a concept that should resonate well with passengers located throughout the Houston region.”

The route, which will be available to passengers six days per week, will feature the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) and will have an SAS Long Haul Business Class concept on board, with just 44 comfortable business seats, in-flight entertainment and full-service meals.

“The route we have established is a tailored product for a defined market with particular travel needs,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO of SAS. “The favorable timetable provides excellent connections throughout Scandinavia in both directions, while Houston is a hub for connections to the south and west such as Mexico, Los Angeles, Dallas and Phoenix with the Star Alliance.”

Houston, which is the fourth largest city in the United States, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of passengers traveling aboard international flights over the last 10 years. During that time, the international passenger totals have increased more than 60 percent, rising to a record total of 9 million in 2013.

Recent additions in air service have dramatically increased Houston’s level of international connectivity, with new nonstop flights being launched to Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The arrival of Scandinavian Airlines is the latest exciting news to hit one of the fastest growing regions anywhere in the world.

“Houston’s dynamic economy and diverse population are combining to create some amazing opportunities for the Houston Airport System,” says Houston Aviation Director Mario C. Diaz. “Our goal is to connect the people, business, cultures and economies of the world to Houston and the arrival of Scandinavian Airlines is a significant step forward in reaching that goal.”

SAS will depart from Houston to Stavanger each day of the week except for Tuesdays. The flight departs Houston at 9:35 p.m. arriving the next day in Stavanger at 2.20 p.m. Departures from Stavanger are scheduled for 4:00 p.m., arriving into Houston at 7:40 p.m. on the same day.
SAS will be the only airline with nonstop service between Scandinavia and Houston. SAS has entered into a “wet lease” agreement with the company PrivatAir, which has this special version of the BBJ. The aircraft will carry SAS’s distinctive colors and logo.

A colorful new welcome awaits visitors to IAH

Quote:
August 6, 2014

The goal is to create a warm welcome for passengers and visitors to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) along the roads approaching the terminal buildings.

The result are monuments at the entryways of John F. Kennedy Boulevard and Will Clayton Parkway that add a Texas-sized “howdy” while being “green” both environmentally and economically.

“About a year ago, we looked at the entryways and thought we could do more to ‘wow’ travelers,” Airport Superintendent Shantel Woods said. “We wanted to let people know that they were in Texas, specifically, Houston, Texas.”

Bright, modern monuments were installed this spring, complemented by aesthetically-pleasing upgrades including new flower beds along the entry roads and around the new displays, adding eye-catching colors to enhance the passenger experience when arriving or departing from the airport.

“The changes are very exciting, and we are hopeful that passengers will notice,” Woods said. “That area used to be pretty non-descript — just trees, grass, pretty basic. Now, passengers and visitors are welcomed to the airport by a more vibrant, colorful setting.”

The project is much more than cosmetic, however. In an effort to bring a bit of utility to the display, the Bush Airport landscape team — which is responsible for maintaining more than one million square feet of the airport grounds — incorporated plants and grasses that are native to the region.

Strange decision. I feel like the MTY-IAH route is over saturated at this point. Is there strong enough O&D to support two daily weekday flights? I know United has several, but a lot of their customer base are in transit passengers passing through Houston.

Well there has been a lot of people from Monterrey and Mexico City who have relocated to Houston due to safety concerns not to mention the huge business connections between the three cities, so who knows? Honestly I am not surprised by this news considering that Interjet has expressed interest in adding Houston as a destination for a while now.

Interjet is offering an introductory rate of $249 (U.S. dollars, roundtrip, taxes included) now through Sept. 16 for flights scheduled between Oct. 23 and Nov. 9.

“Houston already enjoys greater connectivity with Mexico than any other country in the United States and that bond is going to be even stronger with the arrival of Interjet,” said Houston Mayor Annise Parker. “The City of Monterrey is extremely important to the Houston region for both economic and cultural reasons and this new nonstop flight makes it easier for our residents to strengthen business ties and maintain close connections with family and friends.”

The fourth largest city in the United States, Houston has seen a dramatic increase in the number of passengers traveling aboard international flights over the last 10 years. During that time, the international passenger totals have increased more than 60 percent, rising to a record total of 9 million in 2013.

“Houston passengers continue to enjoy the benefits that inherently come with increased competition and that’s especially true for passengers boarding international flights,” said Houston Aviation Director Mario C. Diaz. “The Interjet team understands and embraces the competitive nature of the airline industry and we look forward to having them operate within the family of air carriers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.”
