Austin airport sets all-time record

For the first time, Austin Bergstrom International Airport saw one million travelers in July. The airport's Jim Halbrook talks about the busiest month in ABIA's history. “That month we had 1, 006, 417 passengers through the airport. That was up nine percent compared to July 2013.”

Halbrook says it's the third passenger-month record set this year. Previous records were set in March and June. He says in the last four-and-a half years they've recorded passenger growth 54 of the last 55 months.
