Airport, passengers prep for F1

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

Anyone planning to fly into or out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport this week should prepare for crowds, according to a press release from the city. Thanks to the Formula One United States Grand Prix, traffic through the airport will be higher than usual, particularly on Sunday and Monday, Oct. 23 and 24, once the race is over. According to the city, “Four of the six busiest departure days in airport history are post-race Mondays.” Travelers should anticipate delays and plan to arrive at their terminals two hours early. They will be rewarded with live music.
