Get downtown in 17 mins for just $1. Take the Cap Metro airport flyer bus #100. stop is at the front of passenger pickup
Try any of the food options- most are local Austin/Texas chains that you can't get in other cities!
New Yorkers, your uniform of all black, heavy on the leather and sarcasm isn't needed here. Smile and wear something bright
Get out of the airport and into austin already!
ABI's eco cred runs deep: the airport was converted from a former Air Force base, has solar panels that also provide shade for taxis & has reduced energy consumption to 2.5 kWh per passenger
When your belongings come out of the scanner at TSA, move all the way down to the end of the belt. That way, youi'll make room for everyone behind you.
Departing? Look for the little Salt Lick BBQ taco stand before gates 1-10.
Any airport that plays country is fine by me!
Welcome to the greatest city in the world!
Bags fly free on Southwest Air
land, find taxi
avoid the weird breakfast pizza at Mangia's at all costs. Get an overpriced breakfast taco at the Salt Lick stand next to the music stage.
I was asked several times to test drive the Concorde, but always had a conflict.
Welcome to the best city in Texas!
Welcome to Austin! Don't leave TX without having some BBQ and a Big Red.
Welcome to Austin! If you want to listen to the local NPR station, turn your dial to FM 90.5 (KUT) or 89.5 (KMFA). Enjoy your trip.
If you see me this year, please stop and say hi, I'll give you $20 :)
smaller than you'd think.
Keep Austin wierd!
If you plan to fly out of ABIA on a Monday, add an extra half hour to 45 minutes to your one-hour-prioir arrival at check-in/security. Full extra hour if you're checking bags. Mondays are quite busy!
Welcome to Austin, - hipster city. Just keep it weird as it is.
Salt Lick breakfast tacos = totally worth it! Yum!!
Welcome to Geeknik!
Austin Bergstrom only allows local businesses. That's why you won't find a Starbucks or McDonald's. Try Salt Lick or Amy's Ice Cream.
Get some tacos at The Salt Lick. Buy some BBQ sauce. Get some ice cream at Amy's. Try to forget you're in an airport.
Taking your FuelBand off for TSA #counts
Get last minute BBQ from Salt Lick off Gate 12
The majestic unicorn rides at night but only is seen by those who sleep no more.
Get to the lake and you'll never want to leave Austin
Love that so many local restaurants are represented here!
One of the best airports in the country. BBQ, ice cream, bookstore, record shop. All local fixtures. Easy to love the airport!!
don't feed the goats ;)
Security tip: shoes on the conveyor first(so you can put them back on while you wait) , then laptop in a bin, then your laptop bag then carry on...keep it moving!
all the businesses here are local--so get some barbecue when you arrive from the airport's salt lick outpost!
Take advantage of the comfy seats with the outlets. Now if only wi-fi was free ...
Salt Lick! Salt Lick!!!!
Gotta eat at Salt lick if u have time. It`s great. Especially the stuffed baked potato!
Get a new approved laptop bag for 2010. They say "checkpoint friendly" on them in green. I flew through.
No Starbucks - major shame
try an get an early flight out, staff is pretty quick and lines aren't so long (at least not right now anyway...6am)
Salt Licks is amazing for BBQ and then have some Amy's Ice Cream for desert.

They're not kidding - bags always take long here. Enjoy! You're in Austin afterall. ;)
So glad there aren't any fast food chains or Starbucks here. Austin keeps it real. Austin Java, Amy's and Saltlick ftw
No matter what airline your fly, make sure you're at the gate 45 minutes to an hour prior to departure. Doors close 10 minutes prior to departure. Airplanes don't wait for you, YOU wait for airplanes.
For a good bite, check out the food area by Gate 12 - serving up food from Austin's best local eateries: Maudie's, The Salt Lick, and Amy's Ice Creams.
So quick and easy with decent food options. One of my favourite airports by far!
Don't expect the food places inside to be open after 7pm. Eating M&Ms for dinner and I'm pissed.
Come visit us at the Boxee RV (if you're here Friday - 5pm @boxee vs. Mark Cuban. Should be fun)
