Austin’s new, top-notch airport facilities, coupled with the intersection of Interstate Highway 35 and major U.S. and state highways, make Central Texas a convenient location for materials distribution and business travel. The city’s public transportation system and bicycle lanes provide viable alternatives to driving, although motoring around town is still popular and convenient with several major highway routes. Three of the nation’s largest cities—Dallas, Houston and San Antonio—are less than 3 hours away by road. Laredo is a major port of entry between U.S. and Mexico and is only 4 hours from Austin on I-35.

AIRPORT

Opened in 1999, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport was designed to meet the needs of a fast growing Central Texas community and continues to make improvements to uphold its reputation as one of the best in the nation. American, Continental, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Northwest, Southwest, United, and US Airways/America West offer non-stop service to a total of 34 destinations in the U.S. and Mexico. A $20 million state-of-the-art cargo facility opened in 1997, making Central Texas an ideal region for distribution. Approximately 242 million pounds of cargo were shipped from ABIA in 2005. A total of 7,683,545 travelers passed through Austin-Bergstrom, making 2005 a record-breaking year for passenger travel. Inside, the airport reflects the culture of Central Texas. It is filled with local restaurants, shops, art, and even a courtyard in the Barbara Jordan Terminal with a stage that routinely hosts live music performances by Austin area musicians.
