AUS makes top 10 best airports list

Friday, October 9, 2020 by Tai Moses

There may not be much action at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport these days, yet it’s still collecting accolades right and left. In the Readers’ Choice Awards conducted by Condé Nast Traveler at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, AUS was dubbed one of the top 10 airports in the country for the second year running. Approximately 715,000-plus readers submitted their response to the survey, which according to the news release is “the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.” AUS came in 10th on the list “and was the only Texas airport to win a Readers’ Choice award this year.” Readers noted AUS’ “easy navigation, live music and local Texas food” as reasons it made the top 10 list. Other recent awards AUS has snagged include “being named runner-up for best airport in the Fodor’s Travel Awards; the second-best midsized airport in the United States for 2019 by the Wall Street Journal; and in the top 10 for customer satisfaction among large airports by J.D. Power in 2020.”
