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 and to/from Frankfurt via Lufthansa in May 2019. We are working to bring non-stop service to/from Amsterdam, which is expected to begin sometime in 2021.
More domestic frequency
Our growing business community has operations across the country. We work to support more nonstop domestic flights to the markets our businesses need to get to and from efficiently.
