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

Elon Musk loves Austin and moved many of his corporate headquarters from Palo Alto and Los Angeles to this location.

Building a new airport would not be an easy task for Musk, however.

To achieve this, it needs several government approvals, as well as environmental and air traffic impact studies.

According to a 2019 report from the Washington Post, Elon Musk travels approximately nearly 250,000 km per year by plane. This equals 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.

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

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

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