ViaAir announced its plans to launch two non-stop flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (OKC) and to Tucson, Arizona (TUS) as of January 18, 2017.
The new service adds up to the non-stop routes that will be offered by the carrier from Austin. Previously, ViaAir has announced the start of winter seasonal flights between Austin and Steamboat Springs / Hayden, Colorado, scheduled for December 13, 2017.
Matthew Macri, ViaAir’s Vice President of Operations, shared the company’s intentions to expand its services from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport by adding more cities to be served. The carrier aims to become Austin’s hometown airline.
ViaAir’s service expansion is also welcomed by Jim Smith, Executive Director, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, who added that it is good for business and tourism growth.
