United Airlines has previewed its new Terminal C
North at Houstonís George Bush Intercontinental Airport, in
partnership with the Houston Airport System and the airport
hospitality group OTG.
At 265,000-square-feet, the new $277
million space is more than 100,000 square feet larger than the
already existing Terminal C, offering a more comfortable and
lavish concourse-to-gate experience for Unitedís customers.
ďThis new terminal is truly befitting Houstonís
hometown airline,Ē United president Scott Kirby said, ďand just
like Houston, weíre proud to call this gorgeous new space home.
Everywhere you look in Terminal C Ė from the food choices to the
modern designs to the relaxed surroundings Ė youíll notice the
attention to detail and the innovative thinking that went into
creating this facility.Ē
Unitedís Terminal C
North will be home to several unique eateries created by some of
the regionís most renowned chefs, including a taqueria by Chef
Roland Laurenzo, a Neapolitan-style pizza concept imagined by Chef
Ryan Pera, Chef John Nguyenís Vietnamese-Cajun fusion eatery, a
Panini bar designed by Chef Monica Pope and a Houston-centric
tavern by the James Beard Award-winning Chef Chris Shepherd. OTG will oversee the
culinary and retail operations in the new terminal, as well as
those in Terminal B South and Terminal E.
ďWe couldnít be more proud of this partnership
with United and the program weíve developed for C-North,Ē said
Rick Blatstein, OTG CEO. ďIn sourcing some of Houstonís most
celebrated culinary talent, designing fully immersive spaces and
implementing leading-edge tech, weíve ensured a world-class
airport experience, built for the United traveler.Ē
