AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
Rick Husband International Airport announced today that Via Airlines will begin offering direct, non-stop jet service between Amarillo and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport beginning on Sept. 19.
"Our transportation needs continue to increase as Amarillo grows," Councilman Eddy Sauer said. "This announcement of a non-stop flight to Austin is a perfect example of airlines identifying our city as a key destination in Texas and our Airport staff's commitment to strategically address those travel needs."
"Amarillo is an amazing city and we're excited about the opportunity to serve both its business and leisure travelers alike with non-stop jet service to and from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Central Texas as part of our 2018 expansion," Via Airlines Vice President of Operations Matthew Macri said.
