AUS at your fingertips

Monday, August 19, 2019 by Tai Moses

AUS – for those of you who don’t know, that’s the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport – is getting smarter. A free, interactive, mobile-friendly platform called Experience AUS now helps travelers explore the airport before they even arrive. By texting “Austin” to 56512, travelers and locals alike can have the airport at their fingertips: maps, parking info, concert and performance schedules, art tours, airport games and activities, links to social media, travel rewards, info about offsetting one’s carbon footprint, and more. As AUS spokesman Cory Hurless said in a press release, “Some of the goals for the Experience AUS platform are to increase engagement with the traveling public and to make it easier and more fun to get up and experience the Austin flavor throughout our amazing local art and music programs.”
