Austin’s airport of the Future.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is the gateway to the world for all, the AUS way everyday.
A steady increase in travelers, domestic and international flights, new technologies and passenger safety regulations made it necessary for AUS to envision how the airport can meet future needs. In the summer of 2017 AUS embarked on a Master Plan Study to envision the airport of the future. The AUS 2040 Master Plan was finalized in 2019.
AUS was originally built in 1999. The airport covers 4,242 acres, including two parallel runways. It was originally designed to serve 11 million passengers. The Master Plan reflects the anticipated doubling of passenger growth to serve more than 31 million annual passengers.
