Weigh In on Hobby Airport Proposal

May. 3, 2012Council Member Ellen Cohen

The City of Houston is currently considering a proposal that would add international service to Hobby Airport.  Southwest Airlines and United Airlines are both major stakeholders in the decision, but they are not in agreement regarding the expansion. Whatever is ultimately decided could have a major impact on our City.

Public meetings are scheduled through the next several weeks so that the City can share information on this issue and solicit feedback from the community. Please don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about the Hobby expansion and to weigh in on the proposal at one of the following upcoming meetings:
