Texas airport executives gather to address common challenges

Sept. 29, 2011

The challenges being addressed include the threat on less funding, airline mergers and a weak economy. Also mentioned was the recent Federal Aviation Administration partial shutdown, which was said to have created additional stress on airports' financial sustainability.

In the coming months Texas airports will continue a dialogue with each other to try to learn the best way to serve the public and communities.

Participants in the meeting included Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport; George Bush Intercontinental Airport (Houston); William P. Hobby Airport (Houston); Austin-Bergstrom International Airport; San Antonio International Airport; Dallas Love Field; El Paso International Airport; Jack Brooks Regional Airport (Beaumont); Easterwood Airport (Bryan/College Station); Brownsville/South Padre International Airport; McAllen-Miller International Airport; and Valley International Airport (Harlingen).
