Getting to Austin just got much easier — and cheaper, at least for a limited time. On Wednesday, Virgin America announced it is adding five daily flights from Dallas Love Field to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport beginning April 28.

In celebration of this new route, Virgin America is offering $39 one-way main cabin fares from Dallas to Austin. The "Texas Just Got Smaller" fare sale is available now through February 19 at 11:59 pm; you can book your flights online or by calling 877-FLY-VIRGIN.

"We're especially pleased to expand our service to Austin, a city that was previously only served by a single carrier on the DAL-AUS route," said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush in a press release.    

In October 2014, Virgin moved from DFW to two gates at Love Field and launched service to New York, D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. With the addition of the new DAL-AUS flights, the airline will offer 19 daily departures from Love Field.

Virgin America is the only carrier at Love Field to offer three classes of service, with both first class cabin and main cabin select premium economy service.
