The biggest state in the contiguous United States also has two airports in the “busiest airports in the country” top ten. Coincidence? Well, probably – but no matter, it is still interesting. Texas’ larger airports are thoughtfully located near most of the biggest tourist attractions in the state, making it easy for you to concentrate on just the specific parts of this big area that you want to spend your vacation in. The variety of airports also makes it easier to find cheap flights to Texas.
The five busiest airports in Texas are (in descending order) Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (airport code DFW), George Bush Intercontinental Airport (airport code IAH), Houston Hobby Airport (airport code HOU), Austin International Airport (airport code AUS) and San Antonio International Airport (airport code SAT). You can see all our featured airfare specials on the list to the left – including cheap flights to Texas airports all over the state.
The Dallas-Fort Worth airport is roughly between the two cities in its name, though it is often referred to simply as the Dallas airport or just DFW. This is American Airlines‘ largest hub airport. Read more about getting cheap flights to Dallas.
Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport is actually closer to the city of Humble than Houston, but is a major international airport in the state. It is the home airport of Continental Airlines (perhaps where the airport got its name?). Find out more about cheap flights to Houston.
Houston’s other airport is William P. Hobby Airport, which is actually much closer physically to the city of Houston. This smaller airport, once the city’s only airport, now handles primarily short-haul domestic and charter flights.
Austin, the capitol city of Texas, has a relatively small airport with no airlines using it as a hub. The airlines with the most busy schedules, however, are Southwest, American and Continental. Learn more about how to get cheap flights to Austin.
The San Antonio airport also does not have any airlines using it as a hub, although it has several airlines which have busy schedules serving both domestic and international destinations. Look for lots of flights on Southwest, American, Continental and Delta, and read more about cheap flights to San Antonio.
