Located around 6 miles from downtown, the Corpus Christi International Airport is situated on 2,415 acres of land and welcomes around 645,000 passengers to the LoneStar state every year. It also sees around 97,000 planes using its runways every 12 months.

The 6 gate, two-story main terminal, known as the ‘Hayden Wilson Head Terminal’ is a modern facility, having been completed in 2002 when it replaced the aging ‘B Terminal’. There are currently 65 aircraft that have their home base at the Corpus Christi International Airport – and it boats two asphalt runways that handle incoming flights of tourists seeking relaxation on Corpus Christi’s famed beaches – and those runways also see many travelers returning home or embarking on business and leisure travel. In fact, tourism is one of the major industries in Corpus Christi – bringing in an estimated $550 million per annum.

Corpus Christi International Airport is adjacent to the 6th largest port in the United States and is bordered by the railroad which is an important artery connecting Mexico to the U.S. The airport has been recognized as having the potential to increase its commercial activity and cement its place as a valuable hub for imports from Mexico – and exports from the United States to that country.

The redevelopment of the main terminal has enhanced the visitor experience. Now those who arrive in Corpus Christi by air will be able to access their luggage and rental car agencies with greater speed than had been the case in the past. The redevelopment also doubled the baggage handling capacity of the airport., in line with a commitment to enhancing that passenger experience – and a recognition of the importance of the airport to the economy of the city. In line with the revitalized focus on passenger comfort and convenience, the Corpus Christi International Airport has also beefed up security and installed state-of-the-art climate control.

Passengers now also have some excellent retail opportunities at the airport. Dining and entertainment venues such as the ‘Game Time’ bar and ‘Hangtime’ (excellent sandwiches) ensure that the passenger experience is as stress-free as possible. There is also a well-stocked gift shop at the airport. The ‘Gulf Coast News Connection’ provides books and periodicals – as well as snacks to travelers.

The Corpus Christi International Airport is a modern facility that adds to the attractions of the city. It is the perfect gateway to an experience that is inevitably rewarding – be the purpose of a visit to the city business or pleasure.
