Austin, Texas – – Has COVID left you wanting to travel? American Airlines, the largest airline in Texas, is making your travel easier by adding 10 new, returning, seasonal routes to Austin.
American Airlines announced in a press release that it plans to introduce seven year-round and three seasonal routes to Austin in response to customer demand.
American Airlines is introducing four new codeshare routes for flights starting May 6 with Alaska Airlines, a partner of the West Coast International Alliance. The new Austin service and new codeshare routes will be available for purchase from March 15th, according to the press release.

These routes are not only a way for businesses to get back to business, but also for vacationers to enjoy the excitement of Austin, but also the central Texans to combine new leisure destinations that they wish for. “

American and its partners serve more destinations out of Austin
This summer, American and its partners – JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, and British Airways – will serve 19 of the 25 largest markets from Austin to provide more choice and a seamless customer experience. Whether you’re flying to London with British Airways, New York with JetBlue or American to Las Vegas, Austin customers have the widest choice and the best network if they continue to travel in their spare time and return to business. The airlines also offer better flight schedules for customers traveling to or from Austin with the widest choice and excellent customer service regardless of which airline is operating the flight.
American and Alaska will continue to improve their relationship with new codeshare routes from AUS to San Diego (SAN). San Francisco (SFO); Portland, Oregon (PDX); and will introduce domestic codeshare for the Austin-Seattle (SEA) service with the intention of coding the recently announced AUS to Boise service.
Codeshares allow customers to book a single itinerary on either airline’s website, offering more travel options than they could offer on their own. American and JetBlue recently launched their codeshare, which includes service between New York (JFK) and AUS.
