American Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) starting September 8, 2021, the airline stated in a press release today
“As more people take to the skies, American Airlines is helping customers reconnect with friends and loved ones by providing more choice, convenience and flexibility than ever before,” said Brian Znotins, American’s Vice President of Network Planning. “New service from Jacksonville to Austin builds on our strategy to offer customers the industry’s best network and improves connectivity to one of the nation's fastest growing markets.”
American’s new nonstop flight will depart AUS at 12:00 p.m. CDT, landing at 3:40 p.m. EST in Jacksonville. The return flight will depart JAX at 5:30 p.m. EST, and land in Austin at 7:15 p.m. CDT. American will operate the flight with a dual-class, 76-seat E175 aircraft.
“Jacksonville shares many key industries with the Austin area, including advanced manufacturing, financial services and IT,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Mark VanLoh said. “From a business perspective it makes sense to connect our two cities. Austin is also a great vacation destination for those itching to travel again.”
American Airlines provides service to six different airports from JAX including Charlotte (CLT), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Miami (MIA), Philadelphia (PHL) and Washington D.C. (DCA). To book your next trip on American Airlines, visit https://www.aa.com/
