Travelers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport will no longer be able to park in the Terminal D/E parking garage after March 1. Travelers will have to park in other terminal garages or nearby EcoPark locations to make way for the new Mickey Leland International Terminal, according to a news release from the Houston Airport System.
Vehicles remaining in the garage after March 18 will be removed at the owner's expense, according to the news release. Travelers can visit www.fly2houston.com to check garage parking capacities and prebook parking.
The demolition is part of the HAS' $1.3 billion capital improvement program, the IAH Terminal Redevelopment Program. The $560 million central processor, which is part of the new Mickey Leland International Terminal, will replace the parking garage for terminals D and E. The processor will be a hub located between Terminal D and Terminal E that consolidates the ticketing lobby for international flights, creates a larger security checkpoint area to expedite Transportation Security Administration lines and increases baggage handling capacity.
