Delta Air Lines is expanding operations at Austin’s airport with 11 new flights scheduled for 2024, including three new nonstop routes.

“For the first time, Delta is positioning Austin as a key access point to facilitate connections to its larger global network,” a press release from the airline said.

Starting on April 22, new year-round routes to Nashville, Midland/Odessa, and McAllen will be introduced, each featuring three daily flights. Simultaneously, existing routes to Cincinnati and Raleigh/Durham will see the addition of an extra daily flight on the same day.

The new flights will all be operated by Delta Connection. The airline said the expansion means Delta will have a 20% increased capacity from AUS.

As of now, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines operate the Nashville route, while Southwest exclusively serves Midland/Odessa. Notably, the McAllen route currently lacks service from any airline at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

“This expansion not only creates an access point to diverse opportunities for business, leisure, and cultural exploration spanning Texas and beyond but also solidifies Delta’s commitment to being a key player in Austin’s evolving landscape,” said Joe Esposito, senior vice president for network planning. “Austin is growing rapidly, and this 20% increase in capacity mirrors that growth as we look to provide our customers with unparalleled convenience in the region.”

In October, Delta inaugurated nonstop service between Austin and Las Vegas as well as Orlando.

From January to September of this year, Delta stands as the third-largest airline in terms of passenger traffic at AUS, trailing behind Southwest and American, with a passenger count exceeding 2 million. This figure represents an 11% surge compared to the corresponding period in 2022.

In the month of July alone, Delta achieved a record by transporting 269,000 passengers to and from AUS.

We can’t wait to try out the new direct routes from Austin to Cincinnati in 2024.
