AUSTIN -- A record 22,759 passengers departed from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Monday, according to an airport spokesman.

That number breaks the previous single-day departure record of 21,725 set on Nov. 19, 2012, the Monday after last year's U.S. Grand Prix in Austin.

ABIA says there are many variables when comparing the record-breaking number above to other busy days at the airport, but the aiport says it typically averages between 12,000 and 14,000 departures a day.
