INDIANAPOLIS — Hoosiers will soon have a new way to get to Austin, Texas.

American Airlines is adding non-stop service from Indianapolis International Airport to Austin in September.

The American flight will depart daily beginning Sept. 8 and will increase to twice daily on Oct. 2.

“This is a triple win for Hoosier travelers,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “We’re getting another new nonstop, and to the great city of Austin, Texas where food and music culture thrive, and American will leverage Indy-headquartered Republic Airways’ operations and E-175 aircraft.”

Earlier this year, American launched non-stop flights from Indy to Boston and Orlando. American also resumed its nonstop flight to Los Angeles in May.

“We’re eager to add new service from Indianapolis to Austin, giving local customers another choice for their travel plans,” said Brian Znotins, American Airlines vice president of network planning. “We look forward to welcoming more Indy customers back to travel with American to experience all that Austin has to offer, as well as further connecting them to our global network.”

American’s Austin flights will be available to book online beginning June 14.
