About Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
Austin–Bergstrom International Airport or ABIA is a Class C international airport located in Austin, Texas, United States, and serving the Greater Austin metropolitan area, the 34th-largest metropolitan area in the United States. Located about 5 miles southeast of Downtown Austin, it covers 4,242 acres and has two runways and three helipads. It is on the site of what was Bergstrom Air Force Base. The airport and air force base were named after Captain John August Earl Bergstrom, an officer who served with the 19th Bombardment Group. The airport replaced Robert Mueller Municipal Airport as Austin's main airport.
The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is run by the City of Austin Aviation Department. We’re here to provide Austin-style quality service for travelers at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. We work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure a safe, clean, friendly, efficient and sustainable airport.
To us, sustainability means developing the airport in a way that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations. We have identified four key areas that we believe to be the foundation of this sustainability: customer and communit...y value, operational excellence, economic sustainability, and environmental stewardship.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport embodies Austin, a city known for its distinctive character, its hospitality, and, of course, its music. We are part of the community it serves, and we are just one of the many faces of our community’s culture and character. The airport is governed by the Austin City Council and proudly contributes to the City of Austin’s mission of being the best-managed city in the country. Together, we are working toward making Austin the most livable place in the country.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport opened on May 23, 1999. Although the airport is relatively new, the Aviation Department has decades of experience. In 1958, it began overseeing Austin's city-owned airport operations and maintenance. The Department has operated as a self-supporting entity since 1972. The airport does not receive any general fund subsidy, and has entirely paid its general obligation debt issued from airport-generated funds.
