TRAVEL ALERT: Austin airport garage, long-term parking full; overflow lot open


Heads up, travelers: Parking spaces at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport were quickly disappearing Wednesday morning, according to airport officials.

As of 11 a.m., long-term parking lots B, C, D, E, F and G were filled and both covered garages near the Barbara Jordan Terminal were full.

Only the overflow economy parking lot and a few valet spaces were available.

“We have a few Reserved Spaces left in the garage. Reserve now at http://ABIA.pmreserve.com  or through the Parkmobile App,” the airport tweeted to arriving fliers.

Passengers were encouraged to use the airport parking website, abiaparking.com, or call 512-530-3300.

The period from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. also is one of the peak departure times for the airport. Other peak departure periods are 5 a.m. to 8 a.m.; and 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Summer is perennially a popular time for people to travel, airport spokesman Derick Hackett told the American-Statesman last month.

Aside from the families who are traveling through the airport for vacations, he said, “you see a lot of travelers because Austin is home to a lot of people around the country who are coming and going to visit their relatives.”
