Where to Park at Austin Airport

Are you catching a flight from Austin Airport? You’re not alone— in 2022, the Department of Transportation saw the busiest year to date, with just over 19 million passengers moving through the airport. Here’s everything you need to know about traveling via the Austin airport.

Austin airport serves over 20 passenger airlines with Southwest Airlines seeing the most passengers. The airport has two terminals: the Barbara Jordan terminal (known as the main terminal) and the South Terminal. The main terminal sees the most traffic, including domestic and international flights. The South Terminal is a bit smaller and home to Allegiant Airlines and Frontier Airlines.
