George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in Houston, Texas, is benefitting from air traffic improvements. Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures use satellite-based precision to fly more direct routes with more efficient climbs and descents. These routes reduce carbon emissions and provide a flexible airspace system capable of efficiently handling the demands and complexities of the future.

The FAA is implementing these procedures for airports across the United States. Learn how air traffic operations are handled at George Bush International, and how satellite-based procedures connect this airport with other airports nationwide.
