Austin flights are handled by Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), known one of the most accommodating airports in the U.S. Many international flights will land at Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport and get connecting flights to Austin. The Austin airport serves all U.S. airlines, so it is easy to find Austin flights with over 150 per day. AUS is located just five miles from the city, built on an old air force base. You will find plenty of restaurant options within the airport and a live music stage in keeping with Austin’s nickname as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” You can also browse art on display with changing exhibits and sculptures seen throughout the airport.
You can expect hot, dry summers in Austin with mild winters. Spring brings most of the rain with some severe thunderstorms, but tornadoes are rare. If you are planning flights to Austin, anytime of the year is a good time weather-wise. For outdoor activities, you might want to avoid the hot summer months of July and August. Winter is a great time to visit from the eastern U.S. because there is no snow there and not much rain. The sun shines most of the time here in Texas, making this city of fun and music a beautiful place.
Getting Around Austin
It is easy for the traveler to get around town even if they aren’t familiar with the city. Once you have arrived on a flight to Austin, you can hire a car to drive into town. There are several services within the airport. If you prefer not to drive, you can also take the Capital Metro public transport. Amtrak and Greyhound also serve the Austin area if you prefer trains or buses. You can choose between four pedicab companies and numerous taxi services to get you to your destination; or, if you want to travel in style, several limo companies also operate out of the airport. Airport shuttles cruise to several local hotels and destinations, but this may be more time consuming than other accommodations, but it is cheaper.
