If I’m flying, most of the time it’s on American Airlines so Baggage Claim 3 is where I go to collect my suitcase. At ABIA, it’s also the home to several wonderful guitar sculptures, each decorated by a local artist to indicate one aspect of Austin life. The guitar theme seems pretty appropriate since, as you get off any plane at ABIA, you are greeted by a sign that welcomes you to the “Live Music Capital of the World”.
They take local character very seriously at ABIA. Local musicians play live gigs on an airside stage, all the concession stands are run by local businesses (no McDonalds or Burger King here) and the recorded announcements are all voiced in Texas accents. Come and see what I mean – it’s so much less generic than pretty much every other north American airport I’ve flown through.
