Together, the terminals service 70+ nonstop domestic and international destinations, including London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Toronto. And as traveler demand increases, the number of flights to popular business destinations continues to grow.
Recently, American Airlines announced a slew of new domestic and international nonstop flights out of Austin. The roster includes twice-daily flights between Austin and Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Raleigh-Durham and Nashville. This fall, American Airlines is adding daily domestic nonstop service to cities that include Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Oklahoma City.

Low-cost airline Allegiant is ramping up its presence at AUS by investing $75 million to establish a base of operations at the airport. Located in the South Terminal, Allegiant currently offers 14 nonstop routes to cities that include Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Indianapolis.
AUS welcomes travelers to sit a spell with a bite from one of its authentic restaurants that are outposts of some of Austin’s most popular eateries — if the smell of barbecue wafting through the airport hasn’t already convinced you.
Fuel up for an early-morning flight with a breakfast taco from Tacodeli, stuffed with eggs and cheese. Jo’s Coffee will keep you caffeinated with its Turbo iced brew. The Salt Lick BBQ offers up its lip-smacking brisket and Texas wines. The Peached Tortilla serves banh mi bowls and its famed JapaJam burger. Salvation Pizza slings New Haven-style slices. While Second Bar + Kitchen is a great spot for a cocktail (try the Negroni).
Austin is proudly known as The Live Music Capital of the World®. So it’s no surprise that while you’re dining, or relaxing with a drink as you wait for your flight, there’s plenty of live music to enjoy. You can listen to a local singer-songwriter strumming their guitar from three stages throughout the airport on weekday afternoons. All free for ticketed passengers!
