Los Angeles International Airport
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) & AUS are losing 2 routes, and there is something to note about each airport. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is a base for Alaska Airlines, and Austin has seen significant development over the past few years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Austin experienced a boom, with large companies setting up operations in Texas city.
Though Alaska is cutting the 4 routes, there is still good news for its passengers. Alaska & America are part of the Oneworld alliance and partner under an alliance on the West Coast. Because of this, Alaska’s passengers wishing to fly on 3 of the 4 routes being cut will have the option of flying with Americans.
