Air miles abound: Texans to travel in 2019 regular season

The Texans will fly more in the 2019 regular season than any season in franchise history.

With 21,312 round-trip miles, they’ll surpass the 2017 mileage mark of 18,438. The November 3 game in London against the Jaguars is the main reason why, as that journey will take them 9,640 miles, there-and-back.

The shortest flight for Houston will be the first one, when the Texans fly 608 miles to New Orleans for the Monday night opener in Week 1 against the Saints.

They fly United Airlines out of Bush Intercontinental Airport for all road trips, and will go west of Houston just once, when they face the Chargers in Los Angeles. The shortest flight of the season will be the trip to New Orleans, which is 608 miles away.
