In Houston, Emirates carries 190,000 people per year between the “energy cities” of Houston and Dubai.

With the addition of a daily route from Houston to Dubai, the airport welcomes 98,000 new passengers a year.

Based on the success and demand of international flights, Houston has expanded services with Air China, Korean Air, and Scandinavian Airlines. The airport is investing in a billion-dollar renovation to attract even more routes, airlines, and passengers to ensure Houston is competitive with airports across the country.
