Thinking of flying? American Airlines adds 10 new Austin routes, including Nashville, New Orleans and Aspen

American Airlines is adding 10 new flights to Austin, including year-round service to seven cities and seasonal Saturday service to three cities, according to a Thursday press release.

The airline will add twice-daily year-round service to the following cities between May 6 and Aug. 17:

  • Las Vegas (LAS)
  • Nashville (BNA)
  • Raleigh-Durham (RDU)
  • Washington Dulles (IAD)
Between May 6 and June 3, it will also add daily service to:
  • New Orleans (MSY)
  • Orlando (MCO)
  • Tampa (TPA)
American is also adding seasonal Saturday service—which will run from June 5 through Aug. 14—to the following cities:
  • Aspen (will run through Sept. 4)
  • Destin-Fort Walton Beach
  • Los Cabos, Mexico

Vice President of Network Planning Brian Znotins attributed the new routes to the exponential growth of the Austin region. "Customers have been asking for more service to Austin, and today we're answering the call," he said in a statement.

Austin-Bergstom International Airport continues to be impacted by the pandemic. December passenger totals were down nearly 65% year-over-year, according to the latest activity report.
