Heavy traffic expected at ABIA today

Posted: Updated:

It is going to be a busy day at Austin Bergstrom International Airport as thousands of South by Southwest festival goers begin their journeys home.

Airport officials say more than 19 thousand people came through the airport on Sunday, and even more are expected today.

Travel though ABIA will be higher than normal during the month of March as the city plays host to a number of events, including South by Southwest, Rodeo and the Texas Relays. Airport officials have some tips for how travelers can get through security and on their planes for a safe ride home:

  • Arrive at the airport 90 minutes before your flight time
  • Check your flight status at ABIA.org before heading to the airport
  • Give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport
  • Remember the 3-1-1 rule: Three ounces per container in a clear, one-quart bag per passenger
