Corpus Christi Intl

Corpus Christi International Airport (IATA: CRP, ICAO: KCRP, FAA LID: CRP) is a city-owned public-use airport located five nautical miles (9 km) west of the central business district of Corpus Christi, in Nueces County, Texas, United States. The airport's six-gate 165,000 sq ft (15,300 m2) Hayden W. Head Terminal, which was designed by Gensler, opened on November 3, 2002 with a theme of "When the Sun Meets the Sea." The airport has repeatedly attempted to receive service from Mexico with the latest attempt occurring in 2005. The airport had reached an agreement with Mexican regional airline Aeromar which was planning on operating two or three times a week from Corpus Christi to Monterrey, Mexico with ATR 42 turboprop aircraft and had received U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) approval for the route. However, in a subsequent letter to USDOT, Aeromar stated it would not seek renewal of the permit to fly to Corpus Christi. Aeromar currently serves McAllen, TX with nonstop flights to Mexico City. In 1974, Texas International Airlines was operating daily round trip Douglas DC-9-10 jet service between Corpus Christi and Mexico City via an intermediate stop in McAllen, TX. In 1967, Mexico-based Mexicana de Aviacion was operating nonstop Douglas DC-6 propliner service nonstop to Monterrey, Mexico three days a week with this flight offering direct one stop service to Mexico City. The airport is frequently used by United Express and Southwest Airlines as a diversion station in case of weather problems in Houston. With the arrival of the Canadair CRJ-200 regional jet operated by Chautauqua Airlines in United Express service (with a considerable number of United Express flights being operated by Chautauqua in the region at the time), the airline established a crew base with approximately 75 pilots and flight attendants being based in Corpus Christi. However, Chautauqua then closed this crew base in November 2008 and their CRJs currently do not operate any United Express flights into Corpus Christi at the present time. As of May 2016, all United Express flights currently serving Corpus Christi are operated either with Canadair CRJ-700 regional jets operated by SkyWest Airlines or with Embraer ERJ-145 regional jets flown by ExpressJet Airlines.
