Austin Airport Guide

Austin has some unusual things to see and do in the city. The most popular, and definitely the strangest, is to watch the 1.5 million bats that live under the Congress Avenue Bridge as they take off for their nightly forage. Other less strange sights include the campus of the University of Texas which has pleasant gardens to walk around and the UT Tower from which you can get a great view of the city. The campus is home to many museums and art galleries including several outdoor art installations.


Austin Airport Directions

Austin Airport is only seven miles from Austin’s centre. Take the Bastrop highway west from the airport and you’ll end up right in the city centre after about ten minutes driving.


Austin Airport Parking

Parking is a major part of customer service at Austin Airport. There are nearly 10,000 spaces in a variety of guises including valet parking, undercover, long term and off-site parking.
