Airport Master Plans
Airports use master plans to take a comprehensive look at the airport facility, the airport's operations, the airport's existing infrastructure, and passenger forecasts to identify future development. An airport master plan is a roadmap for future projects and is required for airports that receive federal funding through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Envisioning Austin's Airport for the Future
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport's vision is to be the gateway to the world for all. In the summer of 2017, AUS embarked on a master plan study to envision the airport of the future, and in 2019 the airport finalized its own 20-year plan. The AUS 2040 Master Plan reflects the anticipated doubling of passenger growth to serve more than 31 million annual passengers. The AUS 2040 Master Plan identifies projects that will help the airport increase capacity for more flights, more passengers and more cargo activity along with enabling and supporting infrastructure.
