 CRP Corpus Christi Airport Info & Guide

Where is Corpus Christi Airport? 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 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, the latest attempt being in 2005, where the airport had reached an agreement with the Mexican regional airline Aeromar, which was supposed to fly 2-3 times a week from Corpus Christi to Monterrey, Mexico on an ATR-42 aircraft and had received Department of Transportation (DOT) approval for the route. The airline still needs DOT approval to fly into the United States, as this will be its first non-Mexican destination except for San Antonio. However, in a letter to the DOT, Aeromar has stated it will not seek renewal of the permit to fly to Corpus Christi.

The airport is frequently used by Continental Airlines and Express and Southwest as a diversion station in case of weather problems in Houston.

With the arrival of the CRJ operated by Chautauqua in the Continental Express fleet, and nearly all flights on Continental being operated by Chautauqua, the airline has set up a crew base with about 75 pilots and flight attendants based at Corpus Christi. Crew base closed November 2008 and now Chautauqua CRJs make up less than 50% of Continental Express flights with Embraer ERJ-145 operated by ExpressJet Airlines making up the majority of flights.

In August 2012, Corpus Christi Airport announced plans to redesign its runway to reduce traffic and eliminate safety concerns. The initial phase of the $31m runway revamp programme at the airport is expected to commence in October 2012. The V-shaped runways create safety concerns as one of the taxiways connects both runways, which can confuse pilots during crossover. The second phase of the project, which is expected to begin the following year, includes the extension of the main runway by 1,600ft to 9,100ft, allowing larger cargo aircraft to land.
