AUSTIN, TX – While all heads were turned towards Boston last week, MetroAir’s largest change will be coming to Austin at the beginning of July. A MetroAir spokesperson confirmed today that the airline will be starting flights to eight new destinations from Austin next month.
MetroAir’s regional affiliate Allegius will operate flights to Nashville, San Diego, Houston, San Antonio, and Raleigh-Durham. Mainline aircraft will operate to Newark, Seattle, and Mexico City.
“We’re playing ball in ATX and we’re here to stay,” said CMO Anders Young.
MetroAir previously stated their intent on adding new flights to Austin in order to keep up with the Texas capitol’s strong growth. MetroAir has captured the attention of tech and business travelers headed to and from Austin. After adding flights to San Francisco, San Jose, and Boston in May, MetroAir continues their tech trend with Seattle and Raleigh-Durham.
In an opportunistic attempt at capturing more business in South and Central Texas, MetroAir will be basing a Dash 8 Q400 in Austin that will fly three daily round trips to both Houston and San Antonio.
With the addition of the newest flights, MetroAir will now serve 21 non-stop destinations from Austin for a total of 39 daily departures.
