Austin-Bergstrom International Airport had a record August, according to data released by the City of Austin over the weekend.
A total of 838,994 passengers traveled through ABIA in August, up six percent from the same time last year. (August is the last month for which the airport has full data.)
United Airlines and its regional carriers saw the most growth in August. They flew 47 percent more passengers than in August 2011.
August also marked the 32nd consecutive month of passenger growth for the airport.
So far in 2012, ABIA has seen 6,297,644 passengers, which is a four percent increase compared to the same period in 2011.
Because overall numbers only run through August, the exact effect of F1 traffic on ABIA’s total growth for the year is as yet unknown.
