IAH Airport Guide
Our handy IAH guide will help you navigate the airport with ease on your next trip.
George Bush Intercontinental Airport is a big hub in the country, which means it offers a lot of great amenities. From local dining favorites and wifi to get your work done to shopping and artwork, it’s hard to imagine someone getting bored at this airport.
Before you go: Of course you’ll be stopping by our IAH facility for a relaxing start to your adventure. The local ABC station in Houston tested it out and ranked us the fastest parking option available!
Getting around: go from terminal to terminal using the above ground Skyway people mover once you’ve checked through security. If you haven’t gone through security, hop on the underground subway which connects terminals A, B, C, D/E and the airport Marriott. IAH also has many helpful maps on their website to make it easier to get around.
Interesting facts: Mexico City, Cancun, London, Frankfurt and Calgary are the busiest international routes from IAH. Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, San Francisco and Newark are the busiest domestic routes.
What to eat: according to Houston Eater, IAH has quite the concepts that will make the airport a food destination in its own right. But for now, a few of your best bets include 3rd Bar Oyster & Eating House (post-security; Terminal B; near gates B1-B31), La Tapenade (post-security; Terminal E; near gates E2-E9) and Urban Crave (post-security; terminal C; near gates 29-33).
Where to shop: if you’re not hungry and just want to walk around to before your flight (and get your step count up) there are some great shopping destinations. Some of the big brand names include Brooks Brothers, Brookstone, Eddie Bauer and Hershey’s. For a more local touch, you can pick up a brand new pair of cowboy boots at Pinto Ranch or NASA apparel at the Space Corner.
Enjoy the view: the airport also features one of the largest collections of public art in the state of Texas throughout the terminals. You’ll also want to check out the “Harmony in the Air” performing arts program, which is aimed at creating a stress-free, happy atmosphere for passengers and visitors through live performances. Check out their schedule and locations before you fly!
Take a load off: if you do have time for an airport lounge, there are many available, including the massive United Club, Air France Lounge, Executive Lounge and The Centurion Lounge along with a special USO lounge for members of the U.S. military and their families.
