Air Service Brisbane to Dallas Nonstop

American Airlines is launching a new service between Brisbane (BNE) and Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) on 27 October, offering a convenient link between Texas and the Sunshine State. This is the longest nonstop flight for American Airlines – which is the world’s biggest airline – and is also the longest direct flight out of Brisbane Airport to any destination.

The 13,300km journey takes about 15 hours’ flying time. The service will be operated by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The cargo capacity for the 787-9 is 19,175 kg, with space for 36 LD3 positions or 12 pallets, depending on requirements.

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.” – Queensland Tourism Minister Michael Healy.

With our new route and our partnership with Qantas, we hope to open-up the world even more to customers. With this new route, our customers in Brisbane will have access to our largest U.S. hub.” -said José Freig, Vice President International Operations AA.  

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. […] Our partnership with American Airlines supercharges Brisbane Airport’s position as an aviation hub and will be Brisbane’s fourth gateway into North America, alongside Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles.” – Gert-Jan de Graaff, CEO, Brisbane Airport.

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. 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.” – Queensland Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment Cameron Dick.

The joint business between American and Qantas continues to offer customers one of the most comprehensive networks connecting North America and Australia and New Zealand. By the end of the year, the partnership will offer services from Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), New York (JFK) and Vancouver, Canada (YVR), to three major gateways in Australia: Brisbane (BNE), Melbourne (MEL), Sydney (SYD) and Auckland, New Zealand (AKL).

This expansion isn’t just about Brisbane. It’s part of a broader network boost for Dallas Fort Worth, with new routes to Veracruz, Mexico, and connections to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Kona, Hawaii, also taking off this year. This strategic move strengthens DFW’s position as a major international hub, particularly considering its existing nonstop service to Sydney, operated by Qantas.

Brisbane itself isn’t just a destination; it acts as a gateway to Australia’s vast offerings. American has partnered with Qantas, allowing seamless connections to the airline’s extensive domestic network. This collaboration ensures the ultra-long-haul route’s profitability while providing diverse travel options for passengers.
