New Baggage Claim at Hobby Airport is Now Open
Customers at William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) will see a dramatic difference the next time they visit the airport's brand new baggage claim area. It is the same footprint as the original baggage claim area that has been in use since the airport opened in 1965. However, the new space utlitizes an open concept, making the space look larger and much brighter.
Some of the upgrades include:
During the renovation, crews removed the old green tile floors, wooden lockers and baggage conveyors.
The completion of the new baggage claim area represents a major step forward in the progression of renovations at Hobby Airport. So far, there have been new ticket counters added, lobby improvements and artwork. Next up is the re-opening of the U-Ramp that has been closed since last year, which is scheduled for August 2012.
