Austin Airport, Texas
Austin - Bergstrom International Airport, TX, USA
International Airport Code: AUS
The airport is located on the site of the former Bergstrom Air Force Base, in southeast Austin on Texas Hwy. 71 near the intersection with U.S. Hwy. 183. Eight miles from downtown and the State Capitol.
It's the first U.S. conversion of an Air Force Base to commercial airport since the end of the Cold War. Austin's global aspirations were taking place just as the U.S. Air Force was making plans to close Bergstrom Air Force Base, an Austin fixture since World War II.Austin-Bergstrom International Airport website
