Hobby Airport update: All flights resume after water issues caused cancellations, other issues

HOUSTON – An airport official says all flights to Hobby Airport will resume after water issues forced officials to cancel or divert all flights Wednesday afternoon.

Foti Kallergis, director of Communications & Public Relations for Houston Airports, said workers were trying to restore water to a limited capacity to the airport.

“Our team is manually providing non-consumable water to airport restrooms from mobile water storage tanks,” Kallergis said in a statement. “We are working to restore water — in a limited capacity— to the entire airport.”

Thursday morning, officials for Hobby Airport shared a tweet that said water had been successfully restored.

“We did it! Our crews worked all through the night to successfully restored water —in a limited capacity —to Hobby Airport,” the tweet said. “Flights will resume ... A City of Houston Boil Water Notice is still in effect for Hobby Airport.”
