American Airlines Adds Nonstop Service from Tulsa to Austin

June 10, 2021

American Airlines on June 10, announced daily nonstop service from Tulsa to Austin (AUS) beginning Nov. 2. The new service will be operated year-round, on American’s dual class, 76- seat Embraer E175 aircraft.

“We’re eager to add new service from Tulsa to Austin, giving local customers another choice for their travel plans,” said Brian Znotins, American Airlines vice president of network planning. “We look forward to welcoming more Tulsans back to travel with American to experience all that Austin has to offer, as well as further connecting them to our global network.”

Austin will be American’s sixth nonstop served destination from Tulsa, along with Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, and Phoenix. The addition of Austin comes on the heels of American extending their new nonstop flight from Tulsa to Phoenix year-round, and adding a second daily year-round flight from Tulsa to Los Angeles.

“Nonstop flights to major markets are critical to Tulsa’s continued economic success. I want to thank American Airlines for this and other recent service additions at TUL, which provide critical air connectivity for our travelers,” Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said.

With the addition of Austin to the route network, there are now 21 nonstop destinations offered from Tulsa International Airport.

“We are thrilled to welcome American’s new nonstop service to Austin and are thankful for their continued growth in Tulsa,” said Andrew Pierini, director of air service development and marketing at Tulsa International Airport. “Austin was one of our top ten unserved markets and we are excited Tulsans have another nonstop option to take them on their travels.”
