American Airlines Announces Flights From Brisbane to Dallas

American Airlines is launching flights between Brisbane (BNE) and Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) for the first time ever, starting October 27.

As travel to North America from Asia Pacific continues to grow in demand, introducing American’s second route to Australia ensures even greater adventure opportunities for those travelling from Down Under. DFW is an important gateway for those eager to explore other parts of the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America.

“We’ve had an incredible response from travelers looking to venture to North America and beyond from Australia, so we’re excited to be further strengthening our Asia-Pacific footprint as we add sunny Queensland to our growing list of destinations. With our new route and our partnership with Qantas, we hope to open up the world even more to customers,” said José Freig, Vice President of International Operations at American Airlines. “With this new route, our customers in Brisbane will have access to our largest U.S. hub, from where they can connect to explore unexplored and much-loved destinations around the world, from sunny Miami to the deep South in Sao Paolo and beyond.”

When American’s seasonal service begins, it will be the longest nonstop flight in the airline’s network.

A Milestone Moment for Brisbane

Gert-Jan de Graaff, CEO of Brisbane Airport, said of the new route announcement: “American Airlines’ entry into the market is a milestone moment, locking in Brisbane Airport’s 30th direct international connection, our 25th international airline, and Brisbane’s longest route.  Its Dallas Fort Worth hub will provide travelers with a world of options in North, Central, and South America. 

“It underscores Brisbane’s allure as a global destination and unlocks fresh tourism and business prospects for Queensland, with every jet providing export opportunities to the USA. Our partnership with American Airlines supercharges Brisbane Airport’s position as an aviation hub and will be Brisbane’s 4th gateway into North America, alongside Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles.”

American Airlines Qantas Partnership Opens More Connections

The robust alliance between American Airlines and Qantas offers travelers one of the most extensive flight networks across North America, Australia, and New Zealand. As the chill sets in next winter, passengers can take advantage of comprehensive services departing from major North American cities – Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), New York (JFK), and Vancouver, Canada (YVR). These flights will be en route to prime Australian destinations such as Brisbane (BNE), Melbourne (MEL), Sydney (SYD), and also to Auckland, New Zealand (AKL).

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the American–Qantas partnership, customers will have the convenience of connecting to over 200 U.S. destinations. Additionally, the partnership opens the door to nearly 70 locations throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, making it the leading option for travelers interested in exploring these regions. Whether for business or leisure, this partnership connects passengers with more destinations than any other.

“This is a massive coup for Queensland as we continue to rebuild international tourism after the COVID downturn, opening up the state to the lucrative North American market during the peak winter period,” said Queensland Deputy Premier, Treasurer, and Minister for Trade and Investment Cameron Dick. “This new American Airlines service also opens up so many new opportunities for Queensland businesses, both in Texas and across parts of the eastern and southern United States.”

Advantageous Connections for Olympic Games and a Boon to Business Exports

“Brisbane is a global brand and continues to grow since being named an Olympic and Paralympic City, so this gives Americans the chance to see our state first-hand and provides an avenue for students and their families to return,” said Tourism Minister Michael Healy. “The extra freight capacity is great news for Queensland exports, especially with fresh produce now able to be flown out of Brisbane instead of being trucked interstate to other airports. Securing American Airlines through our Governments $200 million Attracting Aviation Investment Fund is an important step in rebuilding Queensland’s international visitor economy post the pandemic.”

Note on American Airlines DFW-BNE Flight Schedule

Due to the airline’s operational requirements, DFW-BNE roundtrip schedules will operate at different times for the full season on Tuesdays and Saturdays (departing DFW). The schedule may also vary from month to month (TBD). The airline has planned this schedule for Dec 2H (Dec 19 – Jan 6) on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays (departing DFW).
