Looking for Topo Chico straight from the source? Mineral water lovers can soon head to the company's origin city of Monterrey, Mexico with a new nonstop Spirit flight from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

The airport is tacking on another international nonstop flight to its growing list with the route, which will start June 22. It'll be the only flight available directly from Austin to the Nuevo Leon capital.

The airport, which has seen record passenger numbers in recent months, has accumulated over 30 new routes in just over a year and is planning a massive renovation of the space as part of its 2040 master plan
