Ellington Airport refers to a governmental and commercial campus located in Houston, Texas, that is noted (though not exclusively) for both civilian and military aviation operations. Governmental facilities or operations represented on the campus span from city to state to federal. It resides on land that was originally an Army air strip, and later an Air Force Base.
Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base is a multi-use, multi-tenant military and homeland security installation in Houston, Texas, that is part of the larger Ellington Airport campus.
As a courtesy to media covering the base and/or its tenants, the Joint Information Group for the base has published this text description of how to navigate first to the airport, and then to the main gate of the JRB within the airport grounds.
