AUSTIN (KXAN) — How does Boston or San Jose in the Spring sound?
Fort Worth-based American Airlines announced two new routes Tuesday from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Boston Logan International Airport and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.
The flights start April 7 and will operate twice a day.
American will also add a weekend route from ABIA to Los Cabos, Mexico starting May 9.
Tickets will go on sale beginning Dec. 16.
In a prepared statement, the airline says they will have “five contiguous gates” at Austin’s airport by year’s end.
“We added these routes with our customers top of mind to bring them closer to the places they value the most when conducting business,” said Vasu Raja, Senior Vice President of Network Strategy. “While it’s not our traditional hub and spoke routing, we understand the importance of travel for the tech community and look forward to offering these new flights to our loyal customers.”
In August, ABIA proposed a handful of new incentives to attract more flights and nonstop routes.
The city’s aviation director proposed that all new airlines and any airline that introduces a new, non-stop route get facility fee waivers and marketing benefits.
For new routes, the director proposed landing fees to be waived for 12 months which is an upgrade from six months.
