We support the continued expansion of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, including alternative project delivery methods to accelerate innovation and construction.
More than 85 international companies have relocated or expanded in the Austin region since 2004, making increased international air service a necessity. We worked to bring Austin transatlantic non-stop service to/from London via British Airways in 2014, to/from Frankfurt via Lufthansa in May 2019, to/from Amsterdam via KLM, and to/from Panama City via Copa in July 2023. We will continue to work to bring additional international connectivity to our airport.
