ABIA to resume flights this afternoon

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

After being closed for two days, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) plans to resume flights today, Feb. 17, at 1 p.m. Flights scheduled prior to that time are canceled, and the airport authority warns travelers to check to make sure their flights are still scheduled and notes that the nation’s unprecedented winter storm isn’t over, and more delays and cancellations are likely. A press release from the airport explains, “Efforts to remove snow and ice from roadways, walkways and surfaces are ongoing and will continue through the night as AUS prepares for more inclement weather tonight. Passengers with confirmed flights for tomorrow are advised to check roadway conditions on and to give themselves extra time for safe travel to and from the airport. As AUS teams continue to respond to this weather event, airport operations will be impacted throughout the week. AUS will continue sharing the latest updates and information on our Twitter account.”
