Indianapolis International Airport announced Wednesday that American Airlines will add nonstop service to Austin, Texas, starting Sept. 8.
The flight will be offered daily for nearly a month before shifting to a twice-daily schedule Oct. 2., with bookings starting June 14 through the American Airlines website.
Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority, called the new flight a “triple win for Hoosier travelers.”
“We’re getting another new nonstop, and to the great city of Austin, Texas, where food and music culture thrive, and American will leverage Indy-headquartered Republic Airways’ operations and E-175 aircraft,” he said.
Austin has been on the city’s wish list for nonstop flights because it is a hotspot for high-tech job growth.
The airport this year has announced 16 new nonstop flights coming to Indianapolis between May and September, including flights to Boston and Orlando which began this month.
