Although Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is relatively quiet right now, it is making a lot of noise in a new ranking of US airports.
Austin-Bergstrom is the tenth best airport in the United States at this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards from Condé Nast Traveler. Savannah / Hilton Head International Airport in Georgia takes first place. No other airports in Texas appear in the top 10.
Condé Nast Traveler notes that even with a major expansion of the Austin-Bergstrom Main Terminal, “most passengers will find Austin easy to navigate and they will have more time to enjoy Texan specialties such as barbecue and breakfast tacos and listen to music from local bands . “
Condé Nast Traveler released its 33rd annual Readers’ Choice Awards on October 6th. The ranking is based on contributions from more than 715,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers.
Austin Airport isn’t the only local winner of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
Lake Austin Spa Resort ranks fifth among the best spa resorts in the United States and Miraval Austin Resort & Spa ranks tenth. No other spa resort in Texas made the top 10. California’s Malibu Ranch tops the list.
