Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR) is the corporate aviation destination of  choice for the business traveler to the Houston area. It is the fourth largest airport in the greater Houston area and the foremost general reliever airport in the southwest sector. The airport’s proximity to the Houston/Gulf Coast region, as well as on-site U.S. Customs service, minimizes “chair to air” travel time for busy regional and international corporate executives alike. 

Houston’s largest airport, George Bush Intercontinental (IAH), joined the Houston Airport System in June 1969. IAH is located approximately 25 miles north of Sugar Land on the north side of Houston.  IAH currently ranks 3rd among U.S. airports with scheduled non-stop domestic and international flights (over 170 destinations). IAH is home to 23 passenger airlines and 5 passenger terminals, including an International Terminal with U.S. Customs. Between Bush and Hobby airports, more than 50 million travelers moved through these facilities in 2010.

HOU served 9 million passengers in 2010 to 34 destinations throughout the U.S. with nonstop or direct service on six scheduled airlines.
