According to local publication Austinia, the Tesla CEO intends to use the airport not only for personal purposes, but also for employees of his many companies.

Elon Musk loves Austin and moved his headquarters here from Palo Alto and Los Angeles.

However, building a new airport will not be an easy task for Musk.

This requires several state permits as well as environmental and air traffic impact studies.

According to a 2019 report by The Washington Post, Elon Musk travels about 250,000 km per year by plane. This is more than six times the circumference of the Earth.

He currently owns four private jets: a $70 million Gulfstream G650ER, two $61.5 million Gulfstream G550s and a $26 million Dassault Falcon 900B.

The teenager who tracks all of Musk’s flights and tweets his whereabouts, Jack Sweeney, recently turned down $5,000 from Elon Musk, who asked him to stop tweeting. The teenager, however, said he would consider closing his account in exchange for a Tesla Model 3.

The exact size of the future airport is unknown, although sources say the concept plans have been confirmed.

So far none of this has been confirmed by Elon Musk.
