The Austin Business Journal assures us that more international flights are coming to Austin:
There were 14,800 international boardings at ABIA in 2012, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. That grew to 135,200 in 2016 — an 814 percent growth rate that was second in the nation among airports with at least 10,000 boardings. The data only reflects nonstop commercial flights.
“As a result of events such as South by Southwest and Formula 1, our name recognition and people’s awareness of Austin as a destination has increased exponentially,” said Jim Smith, executive director of ABIA. “Airlines are much more knowledgeable about the Austin market than they were three, four or five years ago.”
