DFW AIRPORT, Texas – QANTAS Airways today announced it will expand to daily service in the coming year for its flights between Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport and Brisbane and Sydney, Australia. QANTAS currently serves DFW with four flights a week, and the airline reports its demand for those flights has been extremely strong. QANTAS will grow its DFW service incrementally, initially expanding to six flights a week starting January 12, 2012, with plans to add a seventh weekly flight by July 12.

“We are very pleased with the great news that QANTAS has increased its commitment to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and that our Airport is proving to be a valuable partner for expansion,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW International Airport. “QANTAS is adding a significant amount of capacity here at DFW, showing that our airport is a world-class connection point convenient to virtually any major city on the globe.”

QANTAS’ status as a oneworld Alliance partner with American Airlines means passengers have a multitude of codeshare options available, as well as hundreds of connection options on either end of the route, making travel between North America and Australia more convenient.

“As the only direct service from Australia beyond the U.S. west coast, it gives Australians access to the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan economy and to Texas’ unique tourism experiences,” said Rob Gurney, Group Executive Qantas Airlines Commercial. “And as a perfectly located hub airport less than four hours from every major U.S. city, DFW offers outstanding onward connections for business and leisure travelers.”

The QANTAS flight will produce about $200 million in annual economic impact to the Dallas/Fort Worth area once the flight goes to daily status, according to DFW Airport estimates.

To promote the new daily service, QANTAS is offering a fare sale through October 10, good for travel between January 15 and August 31, 2012.

QANTAS launched its service at DFW in May 2011, serving DFW from Sydney with a return flight to Brisbane and then on to Sydney. QANTAS will continue to serve the DFW flight with specially configured Boeing 747-400ER extended range aircraft.
