Flights started taking off today from the new South Terminal at Austin Bergstrom-International. You can access the small building, which services Allegiant Airlines, off Burleson Road. The little retro-designed building doesn’t have all of the amenities of the main terminal, but you can get food and drink.
In addition to the indoor concession area featuring grab-and-go sandwiches, snacks, and beverages, there is an outdoor patio that will be serviced by a selection of food trucks. The first truck in the secured dining area (gotta have a plane ticket for this meal) is Stacked Sliders. A representative for ABIA said that operators are still considering which local food trucks to select for the space, but are hoping to create a “dynamic food truck scene,” with trucks rotating out regularly. The airport’s concessionaire also intends to bring some of the food truck operators into the terminal.
The public got a preview of the newly finished terminal on Saturday afternoon.
