AUSTIN -- A new study proves that Austin's popularity is sky-high.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport set an all-time record last year with nearly 9.5 million passengers traveling through. That's about four percent more than the year before.

The record crowds at ABIA ate more than 54 tons of brisket and bought nearly $18,000 Keep Austin Weird shirts.

ABIA has seen huge growth over the last three years.
