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.

Austin Weather

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.

Austin Attractions

Flights to Austin will take you right to a busy city known for live music in nearly every establishment.

  • Historic Walking Tours: through Congress and Sixth Street Districts you will see a mix of modern architecture and historical buildings from the nineteenth century
  • Mexic-Arte Museum: provides displays of traditional and contemporary art and culture from Mexican and Latin America society
  • Austin City Limits Studio: live concerts from international acts are held every week for the PBS telecast
  • McKinney Falls State Park: hike and/or picnic with breathtaking waterfalls and beautiful scenery
  • Texas State Capital: located on east 14th street, you can enjoy guided tours and a see the state’s government up-close and personal
  • Austin When to Go

    The best time to visit, generally, is during the spring, when the surrounding Hill Country explodes with wildflowers and the temperatures start warming up without threatening heat stroke. Though March and April can bring showers, the weather is consistently agreeable, making it a breeze to enjoy Austin’s plentiful bike paths (the six-mile Lance Armstrong Bikeway, named for the notable local bike racer, was completed in 2010). The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, started by the late first lady, is a little bit south of downtown and makes for an excellent field trip.

    The ridiculous summer heat starts to cool down around mid-September, and October is an outstanding month to be deep in the heart of Texas. Fall in Texas means football, so planning around the University of Texas football schedule—whether you want to take in a game or have nothing to do with it—is crucial. In a different vein, the city hosts the Austin Record Convention—a huge music memorabilia, record, and tape sale—twice a year, with its largest gathering drawing international attendance in October. The newest music festival in town, the Fun Fun Fun Fest focused on alternative genres, is now a major three-day concert event held every November.

    Music is a big part of life in Austin. Even so, unless you’re a die-hard scenester, consider bypassing the major festivals—the weeklong SXSW music and film festival in March, and the three-day Austin City Limits, generally in September or early October. But if huge crowds, long lines, and endless traffic don’t put you off, then make sure to line up tickets and accommodations way early. Throughout the rest of the year, local clubs such as the Broken Spoke, the Continental Club, Emo’s, and Antone’s boast an ever-evolving roster of both local up-and-comers and established acts.
