ABIA sets new departure record

Wednesday, October 28, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

What makes people want to fly out of Austin? Formula 1, apparently. Austin-Bergstrom International Airport announced Tuesday that it has a new airport daily departure record. On Monday, Oct. 26, following a weekend packed with F1 events, a total of 23,164 passengers passed through Transportation Security Administration checkpoints. Worth noting: ABIA’s top four busiest departure days have all taken place on the Monday after F1.
