Virgin's routes to DAL sure beefed up their passenger numbers.
Would a 3 gate terminal suffice for Allegiant and Frontier expansion though?
Yea they are relative to last May. I'm guessing they are looking at those numbers as an indicator. Would make sense to see added routes. Of course there are other factors that come into play but it's definitely a good sign.
I'm not suprised about no new international route additions in the near term. It's possible any future announcements would be around the time or just after the east terminal expansion is complete. Having said that I still think Austin is closely being monitored by multiple carriers. Given that BA is doing well and the continued overall growth of the port it's only a matter of time. We just have to be patient.
I know a couple who will be using the Austin-Toronto route to get to Europe. I'll ask him to relay how the flight is.
