"vivaAerobus is expected to commence operations to Austin, Texas by Spring 2008, pending the completion of a new, low cost terminal. The carrier changed its original start date in Nov-07 to Spring so that it may launch its services out of the new terminal rather than provide interim service from Austin-Bergstroms main terminal..."

Quoting Luisde8cd (Thread starter): Cancun, Guadalajara, León, Monterrey, Puebla, and Queretaro are new scheduled destinations from Austin that vivaAerobus has applied for US DOT authority to operate
Interesting that TLC is not one of the destinations for which vivaAerobus applied. I wonder who they are going after... the AUS-CUN is clearly for the leisure travelers, whereas GLD, BJX, PBC and QER are maybe more oriented towards the VFR crowd (with a bit of shoppers and business guys included in the mix perhaps). MTY seems more like a shopping express flight, especially considering that Austin is close to the San Marcos outlets and, as I have been told, a new, very cool upscale shopping center has opened recently in Austin, with some potential for business travelers too.
