Houston airport system monitors weather conditions as winter freeze progresses | Bot To News

HOUSTON – Looming winter weather could bring delays and cancellations for people traveling in and out of Houston for the next several days.

The Houston Airport System said it expects 140,000 passengers to travel through Bush Intercontinental Airport and 40,000 at Hobby.

“We are following the weather very closely,” said Houston Airport System communications director Augusto Bernal. “We monitor the friction of our runaways and of our taxiways, just to make sure that the plane can land and take off safely.”

Bernal added that airport personnel were also covering pipes and plants in and around the airports.

He suggested travelers do their part by arriving at the airport early enough, staying in close contact with their airline and being patient.
