American Airlines Announces Daily Service Between Albuquerque and Austin

Nov 16, 2021

American Airlines announced today the launch of new daily, non-stop service between Albuquerque and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. This is the second daily service and third airline offering direct service between the two cities and an exciting signal of Albuquerque and New Mexico’s continued recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Service will begin on January 4, 2022.

“American’s entry into the Austin market is a nod to our efforts to boost tourism travel to New Mexico and our ever-expanding gateway to the world,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “This new service is welcome news to Albuquerque and Austin-metro residents and further demonstrates our city’s growth as a business and tourism destination.”

“This added service from American Airlines is a direct response to the continued return of the demand for travel,” said Richard McCurley, Interim Director of Aviation for the City of Albuquerque. “Austin has been one of the focus cities for our nation-wide Fly Direct campaign, and this announcement is a testament to its success.”

The addition of new direct flights is tied to a continued rise in consumer demand for Albuquerque as a destination. The City of Albuquerque’s Aviation Department has made Austin one of several focus cities in its Fly Direct campaign, a nationwide advertising campaign aimed at bolstering tourism travel to New Mexico.

The flight will be operated by American’s regional carrier Envoy Airlines. Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at

“We’re eager to connect Albuquerque with Austin, complementing our existing service from our Chicago-O’Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Phoenix hubs,” said Brian Znotins, American Airlines vice president of network planning. “Whether customers are traveling for business between the two growing tech cities, or reconnecting with family and friends, we’re pleased to provide them with another option for their journeys.”
