ABIA tops 1 million passengers milestone

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 by Mark Richardson

Austin Bergstrom International Airport passed a major milestone in July, logging a record one million passengers traveling through the Barbara Jordan Terminal that month. The airport has experienced passenger growth for 54 of the last 55 months, since January 2010. It is on track in 2014 to pass its 2013 record of 10 million passengers. Part of the reason for the increase has been the addition of flights at the airport. In just the past few weeks, Virgin America announced it is adding a new nonstop flight to San Francisco, Delta is adding a new nonstop to Los Angeles International (LAX),  American is also adding a flight to LAX, and Southwest is planning nonstop service to Cancun, Mexico. In recent months, several new airlines have begun flying into ABIA, including British Airways, Aeromar and Allegiant Air.
