Airport budget a bright spot

Thursday, August 21, 2014 by Jo Clifton

At Tuesday’s budget work session, Assistant City Manager Sue Edwards said Austin Bergstrom International Airport is the third-fastest growing airport in the country and has surpassed 10 million passengers. Airport Executive Director Jim Smith laid out more good news for the city, with ABIA revenues climbing to a projected $122.8 million for 2015. Budget writers are projecting more money from terminal rentals and related fees, continued growth in the number of passengers and more revenue from concessions.
