AUSTIN -- Traffic going in and out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will be heavy this March, thanks to several big events taking place in Austin.
ABIA officials say those flying out of Austin should arrive at least two hours early for their flight between March 6 and March 20. To ease traffic, a fourth security checkpoint will be open at the airport during peak travel times.
A new food trailer has been added to the airport's Cell Phone Lot, a free parking lot for those waiting to pick up arriving passengers.
