Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport (airport code AMA) is located just 6 miles east of downtown Amarillo, Texas, in the north Texas panhandle. The airport was renamed in 2003 after Amarillo native and NASA astronaut Richard Husband, who died aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia earlier that year. The airport has one Main Terminal and is nearing completion of a major airport renovation project, which will include a new concourse, an automated baggage handling system and an upgrade to the building's HVAC systems. Four air carriers serve the airport: American Eagle, Continental Express, Southwest and United. Just 2 miles north of I-40, buses, taxis and rental cars are available for transport.
