AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin’s fifth brand-new international route of the year launched Thursday, with Spirit Airlines now offering nonstop flights to Monterrey, Mexico.
The route was first announced in March. Flights are just over an hour long and are offered daily.
Monterrey is the fifth new international destination so far this year. KLM began flights to Amsterdam in March, followed by Lufthansa resuming its nonstop route to Frankfurt, Germany, in April after pausing the route due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Air Canada began offering flights to Vancouver in June, and American Airlines started flying to Montego Bay, Jamaica, the same month.
Meanwhile, six brand-new domestic routes have launched out to Austin so far this year, with two more planned for December.
Here’s a look at all the new flights airlines are offering out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport either this year or next year.
Six nonstop routes have already been announced for next year. Spirit will fly nonstop to Miami and Baltimore. American will fly to Memphis, Fort Myers and Panama City.
A brand new seasonal route to Montrose, Colorado, will be offered by Southwest beginning in January.
