For connecting flights that are at opposite ends of the airport you need more time between connecting flights. It was listed as an hour and 15 mins layover but the reality is only 15 mins. By the time you actually get off the first plane to the moment they start boarding the second... That is the part of the journey that needs more work. Also, telling the travelers that bags have to be checked because the flight is full when really it because you are trying to meet the takeoff window is pretty poor.

Crew was very helpful and attentive. Flying was overall positive experience

Cheap Flights to Houston

With its multicultural population, great shopping, mouth-watering cuisine and wealthy business district, Houston is an incredibly diverse destination with a lot to offer. With something for everyone, The Magnolia City is the perfect choice for an action-packed weekend break so why not book yourself flights to Houston today?

When to Book Flights to Houston?

During the summer months, the weather in Houston is hot and humid. It’s not uncommon for temperatures to top 100˚F, making exploring the city on foot or by bike almost impossible. Houston also experiences frequent thunderstorms in the afternoons so you may well have to take cover from a sudden downpour. However, as fewer people tend to visit between May and August, finding Cheap Flights to Houston at this time of year can be easier, especially if you know where to look.

The most pleasant times to visit Houston are February to April and September to November. Cooler temperatures make the spring and fall months perfect for enjoying the city’s outdoor attractions and you’ll be able to stroll around Houston in without melting.

The winter is also a popular time to visit but temperatures can drop when the sun goes down, so if you do book flights to Houston Texas at this time of year, make sure you pack a jacket.

Located around 23 miles from the center of the city, the airport is connected to Houston by regular bus and shuttle services.

William P. Hobby Airport is located just seven miles from the center of Houston. As the air hub is used primarily by low-cost carriers, this is where you may touch down if you’ve booked cheap tickets to Houston TX. Taxis, shuttles and buses are available at the terminal for your onward journey.

How to Get Around Houston?

The quickest and easiest way to get around Houston is using the city’s Metrorail network. Connecting downtown Houston with the NRG Park, the Museum District, the Theater District and the BBVA Compass Stadium the network is perfect for those looking to explore Houston’s attractions.

If you need to travel to areas not covered by the Metrorail, the city has a number of bus routes to help you reach your destination. Taxis are also available across Houston or you can hire a car from the airport for the duration of your trip.

Must-See Attractions in Houston

The most famous attractions in Houston is the city’s Space Center. The perfect destination for anyone interested in space exploration and NASA’s fascinating history, a visit to the out of this world attractions is a must during your time in Houston.

Houston is home to a fantastic choice of museums, many of which are unsurprisingly located in the Museum District. Visiting the Museum of Fine Arts, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Children's Museum, the Menil Collection, the Holocaust Museum and the Contemporary Arts Museum should be enough to satisfy even the most dedicated culture vulture.

Tips for Traveling in Houston

Summer in Houston can be hot so make sure you carry water with you when exploring the city. March sees the arrival of the Livestock Show and Rodeo, one of the city’s largest events. Hotel prices can rocket during this time so make sure you book early to secure a good deal.

Houston When to Go

During the winter months, Houston stays relatively balmy. With average highs in the mid-60s and typically only a couple of weeks’ worth of freezing temperatures, it’s a great time to visit.
This far south, spring arrives early. For three weeks every February and March, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo dominates local calendars with big-name concerts, carnival rides, and much more. Spring also brings the start of baseball season with the Astros, and as of 2012, the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer will have their own new, state-of-the-art stadium. The popular Art Car Parade, featuring automobiles decorated by self-proclaimed artists, takes place in May.

Only hard-core budget travelers willing to brave the heat and mosquitoes will want to visit during July and August. Even most Houstonians try to escape at some point during the summer. On the upside, world-class museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts and the Menil Collection are air conditioned, and the beach is just 30 miles away.

As hurricane season dissipates through October, cooler temperatures prevail, making outdoor activities palatable. That may be why the activity calendar tends to be a bit spotty in the fall. Still, there is plenty to experience, including the recently opened African Forest exhibit at the Houston Zoo, downtown’s Discovery Green (which hosts events from free concerts to farmers’ markets), and alternative arts spaces such as the Center for Contemporary Craft and the Orange Show. Of course, fall is also when the Houston Texans kick off their NFL season at Reliant Stadium. Other annual events include Houston’s long-running Greek Festival in October and the Cinema Arts Festival in November.
