Something New

Come to the Corpus Christi International Airport, and #SeeCC for yourself!

It’s no secret that one of the things visitors love about Corpus Christi is the beautiful Bayfront. So it stands to reason that the Bayfront is the backdrop for literally thousands of pictures taken every day. The truth is, when you are a destination city, there are countless places that are photographed over and over for the rest of the world to see.

Airports are now getting into the swing of things by providing space for a unique experience for both visitors and locals alike. When visitors arrive at Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA), they can get a taste of the city before they ever leave the terminal. The Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau (CCCVB) has created a one-of-a-kind visitor experience at CCIA that will surely entice visitors to explore. The photo wall is a unique blend of some of the iconic sites and activities that make Corpus Christi so very special.

But it’s not just a beautiful display. The CCCVB recently launched a campaign called #SeeCC, which aims to showcase Corpus Christi in the ever-changing and expanding social media sphere. Visitors and locals need only take pictures of their friends and families and post them on social media using the #SeeCC in the body of the post. Those pictures end up being seen not only by each person’s social media friends, but also by people all over the world who happen upon the #SeeCC designation.

At CCIA, there has been a concerted effort underway to give the terminal the look and feel of the community. Featuring the city’s history and natural habitat in museum-quality displays allows visitors to get to know Corpus Christi during the time they spend in the airport.

But it’s not just for visitors to the Coastal Bend. CCIA is a public building that hosts more than one million people every year. Many customers at CCIA are local residents who travel through the airport a few times a year, and who may not always take the time to stop and appreciate the place they call home.

Next time you visit CCIA, fly on up to the second floor of the terminal and check out the experience that awaits. Take some pictures and include #SeeCC when you post them on social media. And remember that CCIA is a modern, convenient and welcoming place for all who depend on it. When it’s time to take your next trip, FlyCCIA! The more you use your airport, the better the chances of expanded air service options in the future.
