Land Down Under to Dallas goes Boeing 747 Daily

The Sydney (SYD) to Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW) route will operate daily as of July 1, 2012, using a three-class Boeing 747-400ER.

Qantas started this record-breaking flight in May 2011, providing travelers across North America with easy access to Australia via American Airlines Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) hub.   The flight initially operated four times weekly, followed by six times weekly in January, and as of the 1st of June, it’ll run daily, as a direct result for the strong demand.

The flight to Sydney (SYD) must first stop in Brisbane (BNE) as a result of headwinds eating into the range of the Boeing 747-400ER.   Some passengers disembark at Brisbane (BNE) to where they’re able to connect to onward Qantas domestic flights across the nation, while others complete the final leg of the journey into Sydney International Airport (SYD).

DFW as the airport is best known, is home to oneworld partner American Airlines – both Qantas and American have established a joint business agreement to provide codeshare flights, better connections, lower fares, and a wide range of additional benefits for individuals traveling between the United States and Australia.

Qantas Executive Manager, Stephen Thompson, is on record indicating demand for the DFW flights is high.

Thompson said, “We are delighted to be offering more frequent flights from Dallas/Fort Worth after a successful first year of operation on the route.”  He further added, “This announcement is all about putting our gateway strategy into action and building a stronger Qantas International for our customers.”

As DFW airport is within four hour flight time from every major mainland US city, the airport is a natural choice and provides countless connections.  Qantas is now codesharing to 60 destinations from DFW making the route the fastest, most convenient way to travel between much of the United States and Australia, whether on business or as a tourist.

Those on the west coast have a wide plethora of options to Australia and New Zealand via LAX — Qantas not only operates the mega A380 to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), but they provide 34 weekly nonstop flights including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Auckland.

Editors Note: US Tourists must obtain an electronic Visa, known as an ETA, to enter Australia.
