JetBlue airline to relocate from William P. Hobby Airport to George Bush Intercontinental Airport


A new airline will soon soar into the Lake Houston area, as JetBlue announced in a June 27 news release it intends to relocate from the William P. Hobby Airport in southeast Houston to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

“JetBlue regularly evaluates network performance, demand and customer feedback to strengthen its focus city strategy,” the statement read. “The move to Bush Intercontinental is aimed at strengthening JetBlue’s relevance in New York and Boston, while also growing the carrier’s customer base in Houston where travelers love the airline’s award-winning service and competitive fares to and from the Northeast.”

JetBlue’s last flight from the Hobby Airport will be Oct. 26, and flights from IAH will begin taking off from Terminal A on Oct. 27, according to the release.

JetBlue customers who had already booked a Hobby Airport flight after Oct. 27 will be automatically rebooked at IAH. However, customers can also request a full refund on flights scheduled after the transition date, according to the release.
