Getting to Dallas and beyond just got much easier. On Wednesday, Virgin America announced it is adding five daily flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Dallas Love Field beginning April 28.
This new service is the second direct Austin route for the airline. In 2013, Virgin launched nonstop flights from ABIA to San Francisco International Airport.
In celebration of this new route, Virgin America is also launching a $39 sale for flights from Austin to Dallas. The "Texas Just Got Smaller" fare sale is available now through February 19 at 11:59 pm and can be purchased here.
"We’re especially pleased to expand our service to Austin, a city that was previously only served by a single carrier on the DAL-AUS route," said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush in a press release.
Beyond Dallas, the new route opens up travel opportunities for Austinites on both coasts. In October, Virgin America announced new nonstop flights from Dallas to New York's LaGuardia, Washington, D.C.'s Reagan National and Los Angeles International airports.
