Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is seeing a surge out of town starting Sunday.

According to officials, March sees a spike in passenger traffic of 6%, adding more than 1,000 people a day during peak days.

Visitors to South By Southwest, along with spring breakers and business travelers, contribute to the rise in visitors.

We have been told that Sunday night and Monday will see the most traffic, with the end of SXSW and spring break.

Authorities warn passengers to arrive at least 90 minutes early.
