Restaurant and retail development complete at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

Airport operator Houston Airport System (HAS) has announced the completion of an ambitious new restaurant and retail program at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas, developed in partnership with United Airlines and a host of dining and retail partners.

The multi-million dollar project, which began in September 2015, provides an elevated experience for airport customers with 43 retail outlets, 30 restaurants, and nine coffee shops. Brands include Chanel, Hugo Boss, iStore Boutique, MAC, The Body Shop, TUMI and Hard Rock Café. Several local brands have also been incorporated including The Breakfast Klub, Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar, Hubcap Grill & Beer Yard, Hugo's Cocina, Café Adobe, Pink's Pizza, and Tony's Wine Cellar & Bistro.

Mario Diaz, aviation director for Houston, said, “With the steady growth of international travel at Bush Airport, the need to provide world-class options – offering both globally recognized brands and local brands in both retail and dining – is more important than ever.

"The new program dramatically improves the quality and variety of choices for our customers. We were looking for products and services that satisfied the needs, wants and desires of our passengers, and still create a sense of place that is uniquely Houston. This program succeeds in reaching that vital goal."

Ian Wadsworth, chief commercial officer, HAS, said, “Dining and retail are an important part of the customer experience and are integrated into the overall operation of the airport. This new lineup of choices offers world-class products, world-class service, and a world-class feel in a city that is recognized for growth and innovation world-wide.”

United Airlines, in conjunction with master concessionaire OTG, further supported the development by opening the brand new C-North concourse in March 2017. The concourse features five local chef-driven restaurants, including Ember with a menu by James Beard and award winning chef Chris Shepherd, and upscale retail brands such as Jo Malone and Swarovski.
