Virgin America Expands Nonstop Service Between Austin and Dallas



Virgin America has expanded its nonstop service between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Dallas Love Field (DAL) starting Tuesday, April 28, 2015. The low-fare carrier joins Dallas-based Southwest Airlines in offering nonstop service between the two cities.


“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 David Cush, President and CEO of Virgin America. Austin is historically a strong market for us and a city where our tech-forward product resonates with local travelers.”

Virgin America is the only carrier at Love Field to offer three classes of service in the markets it serves from DAL, with both an award-winning First Class cabin and a Main Cabin Select premium economy service. The airline is unique for its fleet of beautifully-designed, new aircraft and a consistent product experience available on every flight, which includes: fleetwide WiFi, power outlets at every seat, a full-service, on-demand food and cocktail menu, confirmed seating and personal, touch-screen seatback entertainment.

Virgin America also offers DAL travelers a check-in lounge that mirrors the sleek look and feel of the carrier’s aircraft cabins and is the only dedicated VIP check-in area of its kind at Love Field.

Travelers can book tickets on the carrier’s website at or by phone, toll-free, at 877-359-8474.
