AIRFILES AND CHANGES OF DESTINATION

Traffic management initiatives for this event are designed to provide equitable airspace access.  To maintain program integrity and minimize delays, no airborne IFR filing or airborne changes of destination will be allowed within 350nm of Houston TRACON Terminal airspace, except in emergency situations.  Duplicate flight plans (same time/call sign) to multiple airport destinations are subject to removal from the system.

AIRBORNE CANCELLATION

West Houston airport will be experiencing a high volume of traffic with conflicting approaches with the Houston Sugarland airport. When meteorological conditions allow, pilots are strongly encouraged to cancel IFR on ATC frequency prior to landing to increase operational efficiency.   If unable to cancel IFR prior to landing, call Houston Approach Control at 281-443-5888 as soon as possible after landing.
