Austie, the airport's mascot, is a cartoon chihuahua mixed breed dog with brown spots on his cream colored fur. He wears a blue bandana around his neck that doubles as his protective face mask.

Austie is our furry-faced ambassador and mascot of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.  He loves to show young travelers (and travelers who are young at heart) all of the fun things to see at AUS!  Austie not only teaches young travelers the do's and don'ts of air travel, but also shares important health and hygiene tips for everyone to be mindful of during their travels.
