Airport braces for potentially record-breaking summer

Thursday, May 25, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Summer being a busy time at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is nothing new. Predictably, in the coming months, terminals will be swarmed with tourists, vacationing families and Europe-bound college students lugging around travel packs. According to the airport, this year is likely to be even more crowded than usual. Traffic is already up 6.5 percent from last year, which is an indication the rest of the season will be unusually busy. To keep things running as smoothly as possible, the airport recommends budgeting extra time for ticketing and security checks. During peak times (like the very early morning), travelers should arrive at the terminal at least two hours before their departure time.
