Houston is served by two commercial airports as you can see in Houston airports map—the largest of which is the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). The airport is the 7th-busiest in the United States for total passengers, and 16th busiest worldwide. Houston is the headquarters of Continental Airlines, Bush Intercontinental is Continental's largest hub, with more than 750 daily departures (more than 250 of which are Continental flights). Bush Intercontinental currently ranks second in the United States for non-stop domestic and international service (221 destinations), trailing only Atlanta Hartsfield with 250 destinations. The United States Department of Transportation has also recently named Bush Intercontinental one of the top ten fastest growing airports in the United States.
The second-largest commercial airport in Houston is the William P. Hobby Airport as its mentioned in Houston airports map (named Houston International Airport until 1967). The airport operates primarily small to medium-haul flights and is the only airport in Houston served by Southwest Airlines and JetBlue Airways. The third-largest airport and former U.S. Air Force base, Ellington Airport (formerly Ellington Field), is primarily used for government and private aircraft. At one point, Continental Express operated flights across the city to Bush Intercontinental primarily for residents of southeast Houston and Galveston County. Passenger flights ended on September 7, 2004.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the state of Texas selected the Houston Airport System, which manages Bush, Hobby, and Ellington, as Airport of the Year for 2005, largely because of its multi-year, $3.1 billion airport improvement program for both major airports in Houston. Andrau Airpark as its shown in Houston airports map, a privately-owned airport, was located in Houston until 1998; it was demolished and as of 2008 contains the Royal Oaks Country Club subdivision. The Houston Air Route Traffic Control Center stands on the George Bush Intercontinental Airport grounds.

Will Clayton Parkway, which runs east to west, is another main road for IAH. The Hardy Tollway Connector runs from west to east connecting JFK Boulevard to the Hardy Toll Road.
