Generic Airplane Picture
Houston is the home to Continental Airlines, which is one of the largest carriers serving Houston Intercontinental Airport. IAH is located 20 miles north of downtown Houston, so make sure to take that into consideration when considering which flight to take in the morning. It is also a very large airport, so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time.
There are several carriers that service Houston, most of which are domestic.
The international carriers are Air France, British Airways, Cayman Airlines, China Airlines, Lufthansa, KLM, and AeroMexico.
Generic Airport Picture
With a city as large as Houston, two airports become a necessity. In 1969, the IAH airport was opened to alleviate the pressure of Hobby Airport.
Hobby services 55 cities directly now, and is a major hub for Southwest Airlines, although Southwest does not actually run "hubs".
Traffic in Houston
I would emphasize a few points about Houston driving:
#1 Ignore Defensive Driving rules, all Houstonians do.
#2 Do not use your blinker until you are halfway into the lane you want.
#3 Wave with all five fingers.
