AUS the world turns

Tuesday, September 21, 2021 by Tai Moses

People are on the move, pandemic or no pandemic – at least, that’s what the numbers from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport suggest. Passenger traffic for July was up 279.6 percent compared to July 2020 with 1,541,305 passengers flying during the month. According to a news release from AUS, “This makes July 2021 the fifth busiest month in AUS history, following May, June, July and October of 2019.” The release didn’t say whether those 1.5 million-plus people were coming or going, but either way, it spells good news for Austin.
