It is really tough for the Killeen airport to compete with Bergstrom. The expansion of 195, the quick access to Bergstrom via the 130 toll plus the much cheaper ticket prices out of Austin makes it virtually a no brainer to choose Austin over Killeen.

Add the fact that Disabled Vets can use the toll roads for free plus get free parking at Bergstrom and it's a hard sell to choose Killeen over Austin.
