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 Embraer ERJ-175 regional jets flown by Mesa Airlines or with Embraer ERJ-145 regional jets flown by ExpressJet Airlines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.
