FORT WORTH, Texas — Since the first American Airlines flight landed in Austin, Texas (AUS), 40 years ago this week, the airline has grown alongside the capital city. Today, American is making it even easier for customers to travel to and from AUS with the addition of 14 new routes beginning this fall, including four new international destinations, further connecting Austin to the carrier’s global network.
“Earlier this year we added more flights from Austin, and customers have spoken: they want more,” said Brain Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “We're eager to offer our customers even more opportunities to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues. Together with our partners, we’re making it easier than ever to connect Austin with the world.”
Customers will be able to purchase these new flights starting June 14 on aa.com.
“For the past 40 years, American Airlines has connected Austin and Central Texas with the world,” said Steve Adler, Mayor of Austin. “We couldn’t be happier with today’s announcement of new and expanded service in AUS. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with American for many more years to come.”
Ten new domestic nonstops
As customers continue to return to the skies, American will add three-times daily service to El Paso, Texas (ELP); twice-daily service to Cincinnati (CVG); Indianapolis (IND); Kansas City, Missouri (MCI); and St. Louis (STL); and daily service to Jacksonville, Florida (JAX); Oklahoma City (OKC); Reno, Nevada (RNO); San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU); and Tulsa, Oklahoma (TUL):
Four new international destinations
Just in time for planning winter getaways, Central Texans will have four new international options to consider as American adds nonstop service to Cancun, Mexico (CUN); Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR); Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PVR); Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ). The carrier will also begin year-round nonstop service from AUS to Los Cabos, Mexico (SJD) and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS) following this summer’s successful seasonal service:
Friends in really high places
With these new routes, American and partners Alaska Airlines, British Airways and JetBlue Airways will offer customers the most options in Austin this fall. Not only does this mean convenient schedules and seamless connections, but it also provides customers with greater flexibility when it comes to earning and redeeming miles across our partners. And for our elite AAdvantage members, they will have even more opportunities to use their elite benefits with our partners and receive upgrades with Alaska Airlines and British Airways.
“We’re delighted our customers will continue to benefit from our joint business and alliances through these increased routes,” said Alison Taylor, American’s Chief Customer Officer. “Austin is an increasingly important market for both our leisure and business customers, and we will continue to deliver our world-class customer service as the market expands.”
