Ready to thaw out? Austin airport announces 2 new American Airlines flights to beach destinations this summer
With new destinations to Cozumel, Mexico and Montego Bay, Jamaica beginning June 11, American Airlines will offer 40 total flights from the rapidly-growing airport, including eight international routes.
In just over a year, American has added 30 new destinations from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, which saw a record number of new flights in the second pandemic year. The airport has announced a massive 2040 master plan in lieu of ballooning growth, with plans to add 10 new gates, an underground tunnel, an American Airlines Admirals Club and other nifty add-ons already in the works.
“We’re proud to strengthen our commitment to Austin by providing local customers more options to fly nonstop to popular destinations,” Brian Znotins, American's Vice President of Network Planning, said in a press release. “Whether it’s to the beaches of Cozumel and Montego Bay, or the dozens of other destinations we offer from Austin, we look forward to further connecting Central Texans to our global network.”Eyed as one of the fastest-growing airports in the U.S., Austin-Bergstrom's Jacqueline Yaft said the airport is happy to announce the new routes as customers continue to take to the skies at record pace.
“As we see Central Texas travelers returning to the skies, the announcement of new service to two fantastic leisure destinations is perfectly timed for those starting to think about their summer travel plans,” Yaft said. “Today’s news shows the continued strength of the Austin market, and we welcome American’s decision to bring even more air service options to AUS.”
Starting June 11, American will offer a 2.5-hour outbound flight from Austin to Cozumel at 9:20 a.m. on Saturdays, with the return flight arriving back in Austin at 3:20 p.m. on the same day. The airline's Montego Bay flight will also depart on Saturdays, leaving at 8 a.m. before coming back at 3:53 p.m.
Tickets for the new routes will go up for sale on Monday, Jan. 24 at aa.com.
