Nonstop Growth in Austin Leads to More Nonstops to Austin

Ten new routes keep the growing Texas capital city connected


American introduces seven year-round and three seasonal routes to Austin in response to customer demand.
Four new codeshare routes with Alaska Airlines from Austin to the West Coast offer 10 more daily departures beginning in May.
American and its partners – JetBlue, Alaska Airlines and British Airways – offer 26 destinations from Austin this summer.
This summer, American Airlines and its partners are making it even easier for customers to see the stars at night that are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas. American, the largest airline in Texas, is adding 10 new, returning and seasonal routes to Texas’ capital city, connecting Austin with the world and the world with Austin. American is also introducing four new codeshare routes with West Coast International Alliance partner Alaska Airlines for flights beginning May 6. The new Austin service and new codeshare routes will be available for purchase March 15.

“American is eager to expand in Austin alongside the exponential growth of the region, and we’ll be the easiest airline to do business with as we continue to grow,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “Customers have been asking for more service to Austin, and today we’re answering the call. These routes not only provide opportunities for companies to get back to business and for leisure travellers to enjoy the excitement of Austin, but also connect Central Texans with new leisure destinations they desire.”
“Austin is a vibrant technology hub where companies like Oracle are growing, investing and innovating for the future,” said Rita Visser, Director of Global Travel Sourcing, Oracle. “We look forward to relying on American Airlines’ additional routes to support not just employees travelling to our new Austin headquarters, but also our customers and partners who are building their businesses with Oracle Cloud.”

Year-round service to seven cities

With the anticipated increase in business travel this summer, American is adding twice-daily service from Austin to Las Vegas (LAS); Nashville, Tennessee (BNA); Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina (RDU); and Washington Dulles (IAD), providing even more options for customers to make the most of their journeys. The airline is also adding daily service from Austin to popular destinations including New Orleans (MSY); Orlando, Florida (MCO); and Tampa, Florida (TPA):

American and its partners serve more destinations from Austin

This summer, American and its partners — JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, and British Airways — will serve 19 of the 25 largest markets from Austin, providing more choices and a seamless customer experience. Whether flying to London on British Airways, to New York on JetBlue or to Las Vegas on American, customers in Austin will have the most choices and the best network as they continue to travel for leisure and return to traveling for business. The airlines are also offering better schedules for customers traveling to or from Austin with the most choices and excellent customer service no matter which carrier is operating the flight.

American and Alaska will continue to enhance its relationship with new codeshare routes from AUS to San Diego (SAN); San Francisco (SFO); Portland, Oregon (PDX); and will introduce domestic codeshare on service between Austin and Seattle (SEA), with intentions to code on recently announced service from AUS to Boise. Codeshares allow customers the ability to book a single itinerary on either carrier’s website, providing more travel options than they would be able to offer alone. American and JetBlue also recently launched their codeshare, which includes service between New York (JFK) and AUS.

American’s partnerships lead to more growth and make it easier to do business. AAdvantage members have access to benefits on several carriers in Austin, including the ability to upgrade and earn credits for future elite qualification. Additional benefits will continue to roll out as the partnerships evolve.
