What does that even mean? They are in the process of building a 12-15 lane highway between 290 and 71 as well as rebuilding and improving a 1/4 mile of the 71 mainlanes that will help reduce congestion on the way to the airport. Instead of 71 EB bottlenecking to 2 lanes before 183, it'll stay 3 lanes and add a 4th from frontage traffic and grow to 5 when the 183 toll traffic hits. It'll have a little bit of room to merge back down to 4 lanes. 183 is a very positive development for airport access.

The new braided airport entrance will begin construction in mid 2020 which will eliminate the traffic light which will help as well. I think the biggest negative for the airport are people who have to take 35 to get to 71.


Do not recall this, do you have a link or was it in the Masterplan? Goodnews if true.

I agree with you, the 183 construction may be a pain now but will be a much needed improvement coming down the east side. Though I usually take 130 tollway going to the airport (that's getting crowded now too).


They are going to add a lane in each direction on 130 from 71 to way up north.

Thank you!!! I had no clue about this. So cool. And fitting that the one plane still using one of the stingers as of 12:06 local time today is that of NK. :lol:

Master plan, indeed, on pages 27 (brief description), 38 (timeline of mid-2020 start of construction) and 31 (illustration, as part of Phase 1): http://www.abiamasterplan.com/wp-conten ... -Draft.pdf


Thank you.

Good to know, I know presently they are adding a lane from 45 to 290 on 130. Its hard for many on this site to fathom that 150 people a day move to the Austin area. What was country on a "built in the middle nowhere" tollway is quickly becoming suburbia. No wander AUS is busting at the seems.

Yea, and there is an active rezone application to build that giant muller like development along 130 from 969 to the river. 2.25 million square feet of commercial space and 12,000 homes.

WN also serves OAK and SJC in the San Francisco Bay Area nonstop from AUS in addition to SFO. Are the WN AUS-OAK and AUS-SJC nonstop routes actually profitable, or are these 2 WN nonstop routes not profitable?

SJC/OAK are fine, but they do get dominated by UA to SFO and EWR.

A lot of WN's routes to LAX and SFO are hurting in the current west coast fare environment. That's why Texas is so important to those. All this stuff about WN being a California airline based in Texas is nonsense. They are still most successful in Texas and then middle of America.

No problem! F9 does not have any international flights out of AUS. I do not recall if they did in the past, but the current list says only US destinations!

SXSW special visitors looks pretty fun this week, then into the SS19 season:

SK6951 CPH-AUS A333 6MAR19 (return to CPH/ARN not published)
LH448 FRA-AUS A333 7MAR19 (return to FRA not published)
DL1621 JFK-AUS B752 8MAR19
DL1104 AUS-JFK B752 8MAR19
SK6952 AUS-ARN A333 12MAR19 (inbound flight not published)
DI 7181/7182 LGW-AUS B789 continued with an early start to capture the SXSW traffic. 3x weekly.
*Maybe DI's early start scared DL from trying the AMS service for a second round?

BA190/191 LHR-AUS B77W until 31MAR, continuing with 744 service until 26OCT19.
AC7747/7746 YYZ-AUS E175, early AM departure 29APR19. Mainline reverts to Sky Regional E175.
WS1522/1523 YYC-AUS B736/737 begins 2MAY19.
LH468/469 FRA-AUS A333 begins permanently 3MAY19.
AM2686/2687 MEX-AUS picks up Saturday service starting 1JUN19, Tuesday still absent.

In the interim NK starts LAX and ATL, UA and SY restart CUN service, and SY begins GPT. Should be a busy summer at AUS.

A fascinating add! I've not been to AUS in several weeks and don't recall seeing SY jets there, so reading the above article I was intrigued at the mention that flights operate from the Barbara Jordan terminal. However, the photo of the 738 shows it at the South terminal. Did SY operate from down there before moving to the Barbara Jordan terminal (main terminal for the unfamiliar)?


Yes they did operate from the South Terminal for one operating season. When they added flights to CUN, they needed CBP facilities so they moved to the main terminal.

F9 doesn't have any international flights from AUS- they codeshare with Volaris, but Volaris ended their flight to GDL.

On contrast, those BA numbers look great.

Alaska is continuing to grow. SAN goes mainline April 1. SJC goes mainline Aug 26.

Lots of adds this year have the airport bursting at the seams.

Right, expansion needs to be put into overdrive, the airport needs to eventually quit playing catch up. February will see a significant gain with Spirit joining the show.

Doesn't the FAA cap how much growth they are allowed to anticipate?

The FAA limits master plans to a maximum of 4.5% growth per year.

I'm not certain but I would hazard a guess that it's to prevent airports from projecting unrealistic growth numbers and then using said growth numbers to apply for federal funds they don't need/deserve.

SkyClub opens late April/ early May. Observation area will open at the same time. Not all of the gates are functional yet either.

No word on the sky club. Contractors are working on it though.

Just for clarification, not all the new gates are available yet. Delta is currently using 11, 9, 7 and 5. Gates 1-4 are used for international flights. Gates 6, 8, 10 and 12 are offline because the stinger gates are being removed and apron work has to be done first.

Gates 15 and 16 are mostly unoccupied at this time except for maybe some overflow aircraft/diverts.

"Gate" 12 is actually a short stinger gate (formerly stinger gate 4) they are leaving in place for now. Spirit uses this one.

Due to the volatile nature of this forum, I won't be posting anything I have heard. I will speculate, however, that Delta gets the other four gates when they open.

Thanks for the replies. I'm not familiar with the gate numbering system at AUS. I understand you not wanting to get dragged into an Anet. Controversy ( some folks on here sure make it hard to have fun discussions). Does this mean DL. will be getting 8 gates altogether? So 5 additional gates for them?

There hasn't been any word on who gets what gates. I expect SWA to get one of Delta's old gates (16). Gate 15 is a question mark. Gate 14, I would guess, either goes to Delta or Spirit. The rest would most likely go to Delta. I have no idea when any announcements may happen but we can expect an increase in Delta ops by August.

Update according to the live cam (latest image from a few hours ago): http://www.earthcam.net/projects/abia/terminal/

...shows two of the stingers still in place and two of the (presumably) permanent jetways sitting on the ground. Does anyone know when they're projected to finish removing the remaining stingers and completing the 4 new jetways and associated apron work?

Thanks, Freerover.

I'm finally flying out of AUS on Saturday after a hiatus of a couple months, and obviously it'll feel like having the holidays in March. :D

I flew out of AUS on Friday. I especially love the orientation of the new gate 4, where the BA 777 docks, as you can sit right behind the ground marshaller as he directs the plane in.Image

Can’t wait for the view from the observation patio. It will be amazing when the 747 is back.

Anybody know if the airport is planning anything for its 20th anniversary this Spring?

Does AA handle BA ops or does one of the third party services take care of everything? It seems like the hi-vis vest in the above picture belongs to an AA ground handler.

AA does not. I believe it’s Dnata.

Thanks! Granted, the page shows the incorrect (up to Feb. 2018) image; here's a direct link to the jpg: http://austintexas.gov/sites/default/fi ... _graph.jpg

...for AA the jump from Feb. 2018 was 18.1% Can someone remind me what was behind that jump, which was similar with the jump between Jan. 2018 and Jan. 2019? Thanks in advance.

Interesting tidbit in this article about AA and LATAM JV:

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... nt-457245/

American and LATAM, in addition to a stronger competitive position, say the joint venture will allow them to "increase frequencies, upgauge routes and add new flights". Potential new routes include Miami to Belo Horizonte and Recife in Brazil, and Sao Paulo Guarulhos to Austin and San Jose (California).

Oooooooh, the idea of a LATAM 350/767/787 at the gate here in AUS...is drool-inducing.

Seems a pretty large reach. With DFW next door? How many flights does AA have between their hub in DFW, and São Paulo? AUS? Don’t see it. And if a huge hub like SFO can’t make São Paulo work, have a very hard time seeing SJC even being mentioned with a straight face.

It's currently 1x daily on a 77W. Not sure if it ever went 2x a day or that was just MIA. If GRU-AUS were to be served, theoretically, it would probably be a 221 seat 763.

I'm not exactly sure how LATAM divides its fleet but I don't think LATAM Brasil has 787s.

I seriously don’t understand why there’s so much hype around AUS aside from Norwegian and condor they probably won’t be getting any new airline before dfw or IAH
