The Austin City Council, chasing revenue to expand its booming airport, on Thursday will consider long-term parking and commercial leases at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport that could bring in $95 million or more over the next several decades.
That expansion will include adding seven gates to the east concourse by fall 2017, as well as two new concourses that would include 24 more gates some years in the future. Construction has started on a $62 million “east infill” project with added security, customs, ticketing and baggage-handling facilities.
