Book flights to Houston

Home to a towering skyline, colourful neighbourhoods, the World Series-winning Houston Astros and superstar Beyoncé, Houston is a laid-back Texan metropolis. Here southern hospitality is fused with city life, and you’ll find world-class dining, a busy art scene and booming nightlife. With more than 145 languages spoken across the city’s neighbourhoods, expect an international food scene that goes well beyond Tex-Mex.

Fly to Houston with British Airways and take a tour of the Theatre District, which is the USA’s second largest after New York. Visit the Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, a giant Italian marble symphony hall, to see the Houston Symphony Orchestra perform. Then visit The Galleria, Texas’ largest shopping centre, before heading to Washington Avenue for some drinks and to experience the city after dark. If you need a slow morning the next day, wander around Sam Houston Park, where fans of architectural history will find some of the oldest residential homes in all of Houston.

Houston flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Houston?

A flight from London Heathrow to Houston takes just over 10 hours.

What’s the cheapest month to fly to Houston?

Summer is the most popular time to visit Houston, so book your flights for spring or winter to save but still enjoy pleasant weather just before the summer, and indoor attractions in the winter.

Is Houston cheap to visit?

You can make your trip to Houston fit any budget. Explore the great parks across the city, enjoy a free boat ride or visit museums on their free admission days. You can also catch a free show at the Miller Outdoor Theatre during the quieter months in the city, so make sure you bring a blanket so you can enjoy sitting on the grass. Take some time to wander around the Museum District and stop for a picnic in Hermann Park too.

Once you land at Houston Intercontinental Airport you can get into downtown Houston in around 70 minutes by catching the bus. If you’d like a quicker journey, you can opt for a taxi, which will get you into the city in about 20 minutes. You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Texas has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Why visit Houston?

Texas’ largest city – and the fourth largest in the entire USA – is well worth a visit. From diverse residential neighbourhoods to clusters of restaurants and an abundance of pubs, patios and parks, there’s so much to explore. One of the main attractions is NASA’s Space Center Houston, which is just a 30-minute drive away. Don’t forget to check out the Menil Collection and the associated Rothko Chapel too.
