ABIA sets March passenger record

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

This past March, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport had its highest-ever passenger counts. Some 1,006,899 people — many headed to South by Southwest and other March events — traveled through the airport, making it the busiest month ever, and only the second month to break 1 million passengers. (The other was July 2014.) According to a statement from the city, Austin’s airport has seen passenger grown in 62 of the past 63 months. That streak started in January 2010.
