Houston Airport System (HAS), in partnership with United Continental Holdings is set to refurbish Terminal B at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with a revised renovation estimation of around $1 billion.

Houston Airport System Improvement Project

The public and private partnership project will improve the passenger amenities in the airport, which currently handles around 40 million passengers a year.

The phase one of the renovation planned with an anticipated cost of $161 million is expected to get completed in the latter part of the year 2013. The proposed improvement at the gate area is designed to improve the customer experience. United Continental will introduce technological advancements in the form of efficient boarding procedures to handle passengers for up to 30 flights to take off through three of its designated boarding zones. The proposed gate layout will incorporate eco-friendly systems and offer enhanced adaptability for the airlines to make fleet changes conveniently.

In the subsequent phases, the open space of Terminal B will be developed to offer flexibility to house a variety of aircraft types to sustain its worldwide operations. It will also assist in improving the customer amenities, services and choice of options available for the travelers.
