Search Houston Texas

The William P. Hobby Airport in Houston is one of three operated by the Houston Airport System, the others being Bush Intercontinental Airport and Ellington Field. The Houston Airport System is run by the City of Houston's Department of Aviation.

Hobby is the oldest of the three. The site was acquired in 1937. Howard Hughes was responsible for some of the early improvements, including the first control tower in 1938. The city of Houston named the airport after him, but later retracted the idea when they learned that the federal government would not provide funds for airports named after a living person.
