The Houston Airport System (HAS) announced Monday that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoint and the ticketing counter in Bush Intercontinental Airport’s Terminal B will reopen this Wednesday, January 30, at 4:30 a.m. The checkpoint and the ticketing counter had been closed since January 13 because of staffing issues due to the partial shutdown of the federal government.

Until the checkpoint and ticketing counter reopen, passengers with flights scheduled to depart from Terminal B are being directed to the ticket counters and TSA checkpoints located in Terminal C and Terminal E.

Passengers who decide to use the Terminal B parking garage can still do so and use the terminal subway system to reach either Terminal C or Terminal E to check in and go through security screening.

For passengers flying out of Terminal B, once checked in and through security at Terminal C or Terminal E, they can walk or take the Skyway tram to Terminal B to reach their departing gate. Passengers can utilize the interactive terminal map available on or the terminal maps available on the interactive visitor kiosks to help navigate their way back to Terminal B.

The HAS said there are six TSA security lanes at Bush Airport still operating as normal.
