American Airlines will launch its Longest Route with a New Flight to Australia

American Airlines is expanding its international flight schedule to include destinations such as Australia and Mexico, as it prepares to stamp its passport.

The longest nonstop route in the airline’s network will begin on October 27, when new flights from Dallas to Brisbane, Australia will be added, the Dallas-based carrier announced. American will begin operating flights from Dallas to Rio de Janeiro and return to operating winter service from Dallas to Kona, Hawaii, on the same day.

The airline will also start offering flights from Dallas to Veracruz, Mexico, this summer. Beginning on June 12, the new route will increase American’s number of peak-day flights to Mexico to over 105 by 2024.

“American is thrilled to grow our international network to give customers more ways to escape the cold next winter,” Brian Znotins, American’s senior vice president of network and schedule planning said in a statement. “Together with Qantas, customers can enjoy more ways to explore new destinations across one of the most comprehensive networks connecting the United States and the South Pacific.”

A Boeing 787-9 aircraft with 51 Flagship Suite seats and 32 Premium Economy seats will be used for the daily operations of the new Australia routes. In addition to the new route, passengers will be able to travel to four significant Australian and New Zealand destinations via American’s alliance with Qantas: Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, and Auckland.

Boeing 787-8 aircraft will be used daily for the carrier’s new seasonal flights to Rio de Janeiro and winter flights to Kona. An Embraer E175 aircraft carrying passengers from Dallas to Veracruz will be operating.

This summer, American intends to add new routes to its existing network of famous beach destinations, such as Grand Cayman, Turks & Caicos, and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

American recently updated its AAdvantage reward program, including exclusive features like free same-day standby for domestic travel and free 24-hour ticket holds. This coincided with the announcement of American’s worldwide plans. Additionally, the airline will now let AAdvantage members cancel a basic economy ticket they buy directly with the airline for a charge and get a partial trip credit.
