Delta Adds Austin to Augusta Flights for Masters Tournament

Delta Air Lines has announced they are adding flights between Austin and Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) for the Masters Tournament. The Austin flights are part of a broader Delta schedule increase for the tournament that includes additional flights to Atlanta (ATL), New York-LaGuardia (LGA), Detroit (DTW), Boston (BOS), Washington-National (DCA), New York-JFK (JFK), Orlando (MCO), and Palm Beach (PBI).

While Atlanta, New York-LaGuardia, Detroit, and Boston will all run daily or multiple times a day between April 7-15th, the remaining destinations will operate 1x daily on April 10th and April 15th.

The flights to/from Austin will be operated by Delta Connection partner Endeavor Air with a CRJ-900 aircraft featuring First Class, Comfort+, and Economy.

The flights will operate with the following schedule:

April 10th (AUS-AGS): DL 5532 Departs: 10:35a Arrives: 2:05p
April 15th (AGS-AUS): DL 5040 Departs: 1:59p Arrives: 3:59p

Tickets are currently on sale and start at $671 for Basic Economy, $741 for Economy, $961 for Comfort+, and $3060 for First Class. While pricing is steep, currently the Economy pricing for the direct flight is half of what a connecting itinerary through Atlanta would cost.

It is exciting to see Delta continue to invest in the Austin market and build a stronger presence here. The airline most recently was the official airline of SXSW and has added non-hub flights to Midland, McAllen, Nashville, Orlando, and Las Vegas from Austin.

If only I had better luck in the Masters ticket lottery this year maybe I’d be onboard. Are you interested in flying Delta’s new service to get to the Masters Tournament?
