  Austin–Bergstrom International Airport or ABIA (IATA: AUS) is a Class C international airport located in Austin, Texas – the capital of Texas, and serving the Greater Austin metropolitan area, the 34th-largest metropolitan area in the United States. Located about 5 miles southeast of Downtown Austin, it covers 4,242 acres and has two runways and three helipads. The airport is named after Captain John August Earl Bergstrom, an officer who served for the 19th Bombardment Group.

A total of 10,017,958 passengers traveled through the Austin–Bergstrom International Airport in 2013, an all-time high and the first year that more than 10 million people used the airport. The airport is now the 36th busiest airport for total passengers in the United States. Annual passenger total in 2013 increased by 4%, or 587,644 passengers, from the previous record year of 2012. 2013 also saw the addition of Allegiant Air and Aeromar as carriers and the announcement of British Airways’ new route to London Heathrow beginning in March 2014, Austin’s first transatlantic service.

Currently, there are over 150 daily departures to 44 destinations in the U.S., Mexico, and United Kingdom.

  Barbara Jordan Terminal was designed by the Austin firm of Page Southerland Page with associate architect Gensler under contract to the New Airport Project Team, with lead architect University of Texas at Austin Architecture professor Larry Speck. The terminal is 660,000 square feet with a total of 25 gates. While there are several restaurants and food concessions inside the terminal, all but two are located inside the secured gate areas of the terminal. The terminal also has a live music stage on which local bands perform in keeping with the spirit of Austin’s proclamation as “The Live Music Capital of the World.” The terminal is connected to a 3000 space parking garage used for public parking as well as rental car pick-up and return.

  A consolidated rental car facility is under construction (anticipated completion in 2015) that will move counter, pick up, and drop off facilities to a new 900 space structure adjacent to the existing parking garage, allowing currently utilized spaces to be converted to additional close-in short term parking. A second improvement project is a 50,000 square foot addition to the terminal that will increase the number of security checkpoints for departing passengers, and allow a second gate to be used for international arrivals. Customs and immigration facilities in the new addition will allow the processing of 600 passengers per hour when the facility is completed in 2015. As the airport continues to see constant and rapid growth, a new seven gate expansion is set to break ground in 2015, on the east side of the terminal near the new customs facility that is being built.

   A new dedicated facility known as the South Terminal Austin was approved by the Austin City Council in order to accommodate the arrival of Mexican-based, low-cost airline, VivaAerobus, which launched operations on May 1, 2008. This terminal did not have any gates, there were only parking stands for the aircraft. That terminal was closed on June 1, 2009, after VivaAerobus terminated service to Austin. Currently the terminal is not being used for any flights.

  Both American Airlines and United Airlines operate lounges at this airport for members of their executive lounge programs. Members of Alaska Airlines’s executive lounge program and British Airways Club World passengers also have access to American’s facilities.
