Getting to the Airshow
Shuttle Bus Transportation
Shuttle bus service is included FREE with each ticket purchase.
Due to ongoing construction at Ellington Airport, our onsite parking will be limited again this year. For your comfort and convenience, we recommend using a Shuttle Bus from one of the area Park and Rides listed below. We encourage General Admission ticket holders to take advantage of the FREE shuttle bus service.
>>> Important Note: Please arrive before 14:30 (2:30 PM) each day.
Traffic/parking lanes become OUTBOUND only after 14:30 (2:30 PM) each day. <<<
Shuttle buses will run from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. continuously. The last inbound shuttle to Ellington leaves at 2:30 p.m.
Please Note: The shuttle buses cannot accommodate wagons, large strollers, or chairs that cannot be collapsed and carried on-board.

ARRIVING BY car:
Ellington Airport is located about 20 minutes south of Houston in the Clear Lake area. From Houston, take I-45 South to the Ellington/FM-1959 exit. Go under the overpass and curve right, over I-45 and onto Ellington Road (FM-1959). Continue heading east into the main entrance of Ellington Airport. Or you may take Beltway 8 to the Highway 3 exit, then proceed south on Highway 3 to Ellington Airport. There is no charge for parking with paid Airshow ticket.
ARRIVING BY TAXI:
Ellington Airport is located about 20 minutes south of Houston in the Clear Lake area. The airport grounds and office complex are very large, so you will need a specific address for taxi drop-off and pick-up. We recommend using the address for Signature Flight Services located at Ellington Airport Building 500, 11811 North Brantly Ave, Houston, TX 77034. This address is closest to our central ticket gate. However, please be advised that following the end of the airshow, a taxi pick-up may be delayed as almost all traffic lanes are outbound only! Please arrange with your taxi driver for a pick-up time and location.
ARRIVING BY UBER/Lyft/Alto (Rideshare):
Ellington Airport is located about 20 minutes south of Houston in the Clear Lake area. The airport grounds and complex are very large, so you will need a specific address for Rideshare drop-off and pick-up. We recommend using the address for Lone Star Flight Museum located at Ellington Airport, 11551 Aerospace Ave, Houston, TX 77034. This address will be the easiest to find for drivers. There will still be a walk from the museum to our gates, but it will make pick up and drop off easiest. Please be advised that following the end of the airshow, a rideshare pick-up may be delayed as almost all traffic lanes are outbound only! Please arrange with your rideshare driver for a pick-up time and location.
ARRIVING BY COMMERCIAL AIR:
Houston’s Hobby Airport is located just off I-45, between downtown Houston and Ellington Airport and is served by most major airlines. Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport is located north of the city. Both airports offer a number of rental car agencies.
ARRIVING BY YOUR OWN AIRCRAFT:
Transient aircraft parking is currently available, but that is subject to change throughout the year. Please reach out to Signature FBO at Ellington for all inquiries – https://www.signatureflight.com/locations/EFD
