The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport’s economic impact to the area is up 212 percent from 2010, according to a new study. The study, conducted by the Austin Transportation Department, looked at airports all over Texas to examine their impact to city and state economies. In 2017, Austin’s airport contributed over $7.6 billion of economic activity in 2017 and supports over 74,000 jobs in the area. ABIA offers nonstop service to 83 destinations across North America and Europe, and passenger traffic through the airport increased 60 percent since 2010.
