While Galveston provides a great spot for a weekend getaway, Island Jet Center offers competitive advantages. Galveston has its own Customs department which can clear international flights. Galveston is home to UTMB, making it easy access for medical flights. Galveston sits midway between Florida and California, making a perfect coast to coast fuel stop. Lastly, the airport is five minutes from one of the busiest ports in Houston, providing easy access to cargo charters.
