Softness in the energy sector is not dampening passenger growth at Houston Intercontinental Airport as the facility during 2015 is adding a mix of new services to Central America, Asia and Australia. 

Houston Intercontinental has enjoyed solid expansion into Asia during the last couple of years, which has helped to bolster its international passenger numbers while domestic passenger growth has also charted a steady course. 

Although Houston Intercontinental is a hub airport dominated by United Airlines, the facility does have some penetration from ULCCs, particularly Spirit, which recently capped off a domestic push from Intercontinental with new international service.
