AUS traffic trends up, up and away

Tuesday, June 14, 2022 by Tai Moses

Passenger traffic growth at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport for April 2022 was up 121.74 percent compared to April 2021 with 1,865,046 passengers flying, “setting a new record for busiest month ever at the airport,” says a press release from AUS. Every single airline saw an increase in passengers. Southwest, for instance, reported 722,855 passengers in April, up 155.1 percent, while American Airlines had 500,823 passengers, a 161.7 percent increase. All of which suggests that long waits and lengthy security lines will not deter people who are determined to fly.
