|Houston, TX — William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), the only airport in North America to boast a 5-Star International Rating from Skytrax, will host the opening of Gameway’s newest location in the International Terminal on December 5th, ahead of the highly-anticipated holiday travel season. The Skytrax World Airport Star Rating is a global benchmark of quality for the aviation industry, focusing on traveler-facing amenities, facilities, and staff; areas in which Gameway excels. As the premiere airport video gaming lounge, Gameway’s award-winning luxury gaming stations, and industry-leading amenities and services perfectly complement and enhance Hobby Airport’s commitment to first-class service.
The newest Gameway video gaming lounge opens in a much sought-after location in Hobby Airport’s International Terminal, and offers 15 top-of-the-line luxury gaming stations: six Xbox stations, five Playstation stations, four PC stations, all with the newest games. Each PC station is equipped with Razer’s Iskur Gaming Chairs and Kraken Headsets, along with dedicated high speed internet. “Gameway is the real reason to get to the airport early,” said Co-Founder Jordan Walbridge. “Our mission is to upgrade the typical wait-at-the-gate experience with a new stimulating, entertaining option for travelers of all ages.”
“With Gameway, Hobby Airport now offers a unique entertainment and retail experience to our visitors and the avid gaming community,” noted Francisco Cuellar, Chief Development Officer for Houston Airports. “As the first and only 5-star rated airport in North America, Hobby continues to elevate the passenger experience with quality and diverse retail offerings for all of our passengers.”
Gameway’s opening comes right in time for the holiday travel season, where HOU projects an increase in traveler volume over even the record-breaking 2019 holiday season. The International terminal alone serves routes to over 20 different countries, and as millions of families pass through the terminal this holiday season, Gameway offers a unique way for travelers to de-stress on their trip.
