Take a deep breath

The hectic holiday travel days are upon us, and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport wants to make sure all Austinites are prepared. The airport is adding several new flights for the season, so expect a crowd.  All passengers are advised to be in the terminal at least two hours before departure for all flights. You are also advised to check the status of your flight here to avoid surprises, and call 512-530-3300 (available 24/7) for airport parking updates. You can also check security line speeds at the Barbara Jordan Terminal from the “Travel Tips” tab at, or here. This tool shows speeds at three different checkpoints: Checkpoint 1 is on the east end of ticketing and enters the concourse at Gate 6, Checkpoint 2 is located in the center of the terminal and enters the concourse at Gate 11, and Checkpoint 3 is on the west end of ticketing and enters the concourse at Gate 14. However, all gates are accessible through all checkpoints. Finally, a special note if you’re flying Allegiant, Sun Country or ViaAir: These airlines now arrive and depart from the South Terminal. You can access parking for this terminal from the south entrance of the airport at U.S. Highway 183 South and Burleson Road. More information about the South Terminal here.
