And, I am guessing it is official Volaris is no long flying into Austin? Just doing a quick search for some one way flights back from Mexico and it no longer shows.

Yep they were discontinued earlier this month.

Just flew through Kuala Lumpur's klia2 a few days ago, which has a similar setup, at least in principle, to what Austin will have in the future. The link has some photos and a diagram.

Wow that’s a great find, drummer! Looks pretty much exactly what ABIA wants to be when it grows up.

Great find. All-though, ABIA's skybridge will be further off the ground than the one at KLIA2.

WestJet is adding service to Austin from Calgary starting in May. Service looks to be year round but less than daily.

In other news for our San Antonio friends. Air Canada is discontinuing service

Once or twice per week, looks like. What a strange add! We've got demand for Vancouver, but Calgary?

Also, Westjet has a tie-up with Delta, don't they?

.3 I think is 2x weekly, dunno for sure. YYC is WestJets megahub so makes sense for them to add YYC first I guess. Hopefully it does well and goes daily with a Vancouver add. WestJet and Delta are indeed parters.

I was expecting WestJet eventually. Considering they run to both Toronto and Calgary from Nashville, which is a very similar market to Austin, I knew AUS would be a logical add eventually. I wouldn't even be surprised if they ran to Toronto eventually as well, especially if DL builds up here.

I hope the service does well but I would much rather prefer the addition of Vancouver over the addition of Toronto, then fighting with AirCanada, then the route gets dropped.

I doubt that would happen. Nashville has Toronto flights on both Air Canada and WestJet, and both seem to do ok. Granted, they are both on regional jets, but still. Austin is a bit bigger than Nashville and now that San Antonio is losing their Air Canada flights, Austin just might see some leakage for those who need to get to our northern neighbors.

Vancouver is tricky because it appears (and I may be wrong about this) it is not served very much from non-hub markets in the US, so that may be a bit of a challenge.

Sorry, i was the one who introduced Vancouver. The reason I brought it up was that when the port did an projection of potential international traffic, there were enough passengers per day between Austin and Vancouver currently to justify a daily E175 service—based on that and nothing else at all I just had it in my head that western Canada service would be to Vancouver. But Calgary is Westjet’s base, and they’re starting with low frequencies, which seems smart.

I would assume there’s a reason they chose Calgary and not to duplicate the existing Toronto service by AC.

I also notice that Westjet opening service to Portland and Austin, which, if rumors are to be believed, are two cities where their partner Delta wants to beef up its presence. I wonder if this is part of the long-awaited ramp up by DL and partners.

It was in the OAG (Official Airline Guide) update today. I would imagine the official announcement will come sometime this week.

Since we are mere weeks away from (at least part of) the new gates opening, any word on the gate assignments?

Our SSS (staff support specialist) was attending the airport meetings where that information might be available. Unfortunately, before the selection was made by HR for the permanent SSS, the government shutdown. Attending any of those meetings became non excepted work. It's still going to be weeks before it's resolved so chances are we will hear about everything when the port decides to announce it and not sooner.

Construction update. Most notable is that the north side of the extension will be open by the end of February. (Nothing about gate assignments, but presumably the carriers currently using the gates that will be dismantled -- British, Aeromexico, Delta -- will be among the first to relocate).
