The Houston Airport System (HAS) handled 53.5 million passengers in the 12 months ending October ’22. While a substantial improvement over last year, passenger traffic is still below pre-pandemic levels. That said, overall traffic is up 31.7 percent compared to last year. Domestic traffic is up 27.2 percent and international is up 55.7 percent. 

HAS handled well over half a million metric tons of cargo in the 12 months ending October ’22. That’s a substantial improvement over the comparable period in ‘21 and nearly 56,000 tons above pre-pandemic levels. 

According to a press release, Houston Airports continues to make progress on the IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program (ITRP). The $1.36 billion project will revitalize the international terminal and create a new area between Terminals D and E that consolidates baggage claims, security checkpoints, and ticketing counters.
