The new 2001 Department of Transportation budget has set aside money to add a 5th runway to IAH! According to a press release from Continental, the new runway will be 8,500 feet. Construction will begin late 2000 and become operational in early 2003. There is also a link in the airliners.net aviation news section as well.
With new additions to the fleet and greater capacity at IAH, there is no doubt that CO will add additional destinations from IAH. Any speculation as to where?
