Austin's nonstop flight additions appear to be nonstop. Southwest Airlines has announced a new flight connecting Austin to Midwest barbecue mecca Kansas City, Missouri.

On March 13, 2017, the airline will launch nonstop service between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Kansas City International Airport. This is the first nonstop flight from Austin to Missouri's largest city.

As usual, Southwest promises quality service at affordable prices. Through November 22, travelers can purchase one-way tickets as low as $89 for flights between March 13 and May 8, 2017.

Kansas City joins a growing roster of nonstop destinations from Austin. Other hot Southwest nonstop destinations include Albuquerque, New Mexico; Portland, Oregon; Seattle; Boston; and St. Louis.
