AGS Prepares for Masters Week 2022!
“For hire” ground transportation vehicles: The Masters generates significant numbers of “for hire” ground transportation operators that are not normally permitted at the Airport. As part of AGS’s curb enforcement operation and for equitable business practices, these operators will be required to pay (by credit or debit card) a nominal trip fee of $2.00, and will be directed to a designated parking lot adjacent to the main terminal building. This is the same fee imposed for year-round “for hire” commercial ground vehicle operators. Airport permitted or year-round “for hire” commercial ground vehicle operators will continue to operate as normal.
These protocols extend to “for profit” enterprises that enter the premises for the sole purpose of picking up passengers i.e. taxies, limousines, hotel/motel shuttle services, hospitality transportation services, etc.
New Amenities for 2022: As part of the Airport’s “Advancing. Growing. Stronger” (AGS) Campaign, this year customers will experience many upgrades such as the recently renovated baggage claim area and automated exit lane equipment.
Flight Offerings: In addition to regularly scheduled destinations, Washington D.C., Dallas, Charlotte, and Atlanta. Delta and American Airlines will offer additional direct flights to and from Augusta during the week of the Masters. This year’s itinerary includes direct service to and from New York, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and for the first time at AGS, Austin.
“As the primary aviation gateway to Augusta, we are diligently preparing for the 2022 Masters™ and excited for the prospects of a full event,” said Herbert L. Judon Jr., Airport Executive Director. ” Albeit a very busy time, we are privileged to provide facilities and services for our visitors as well as local customers who choose to take advantage of the expanded Masters™ Week flight offerings.”
