Hayden W. Head Terminal
The Hayden W. Head Terminal at CCIA is a breath of fresh air. The modern design blends perfectly with a coastal flavor that’s uniquely Corpus Christi. Towering walls of glass flood the space with warm natural sunlight while the serene color palette soothes the soul. You won’t find a more pleasant and relaxing travel experience anywhere.
No confusing navigation, no hectic crowds, no stress. The efficient layout of the terminal makes finding your way easy. Six gates for commercial air service and a newly expanded federal inspection services area for international flights, your gate is just steps away from your car.
Doesn’t matter the destination. Fly CCIA. Go to a happy place.
When the Sun Meets the Sea
Enjoy this large scale cold casting glass sculpture that hangs in the Hayden W. Head Terminal. Chinese born artist Shan Shan Sheng designed the 42-piece exhibit. The hanging panels making up the sculpture are comprised of cold cast glass in a variety of different shapes and colors. The artwork is suspended from the ceiling with stainless steel aircraft cable.
The Wavy Art Wall
We call it the wavy wall because that is exactly what it is. When travelers head for the exit of the newly designed Federal Inspection Services (FIS) area at the airport, they will not be able to leave without seeing Corpus Christi front and center. “We wanted to give visitors a taste of the city they are about to experience,” said Fred Segundo, the Director of Aviation. “We felt like the welcome wall, waves and all, was a great place to showcase what Corpus Christi is all about.”
The art display was created by local photographer Jerry Veglia. Jerry’s picture seemed like the perfect welcome message. “I think Corpus Christi is a special place,” said Veglia. “I hope residents and visitors enjoy the beauty of our home and that they get a sense of who we are when they see the wall.”
