As the winter weather in Austin escalates to record-breaking lows, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, or AUS, is experiencing significant flight cancellations in the upcoming week.


In a press release, AUS advised travelers to confirm flight statuses with their airline before heading over to the airport within the next 48 hours. If a flight is confirmed, the statement urged people to consider the winter warnings and travel to the airport with extreme caution.

Due to the extreme conditions, AUS has made operation updates to the airport, including the closure of one of the two security checkpoints and modified access in and out of the Blue Garage.

Although the airport remains open, Austinites are reminded to stay off the roads whenever possible. Dozens of wrecks have occurred due to ice on the roads since the winter storm came in.
