Virgin America has announced it will expand its schedule to two daily non-stop roundtrips between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and its home base at San Francisco International Airport, as of July 8th, 2014.
The California-based airline first introduced service between the innovation capitals of Austin and San Francisco in May 2013.
“Since entering the Austin market nearly a year ago, we’ve seen strong demand for our award-winning guest service and business friendly in-flight amenities,” said John MacLeod, Virgin America senior vice president of planning and sales.
“Austin and San Francisco enjoy strong business ties and a cultural affinity - so expansion on this route makes sense for both our business and leisure guests.”
The new morning Austin departure is timed to be convenient for business travellers originating in Austin.
Connecting flights will be available from Austin to the carrier’s Seattle, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, and Las Vegas destinations.
