American Airlines’ first daily nonstop flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Auckland, New Zealand has begun.
The ceremony started on Saturday, October 29.
The Fort Worth-based airline said that the service would be the only daily nonstop trip to Auckland from DFW, as well as the sole route to New Zealand this winter from the southern and southeastern United States.
In May of this year, the airline announced the new route and said that a Boeing 787-9 would fly it until March 25, 2023.
There are Flagship Business and Premium Economy staterooms on board.
As DFW’s local airline, we are pleased to continue expanding our extensive network from America’s biggest hub.
American’s vice president of DFW operations, Jim Moses, said that “offering service to Auckland from DFW means that customers from practically everywhere in the globe can connect to New Zealand with one simple stop here, and vice versa.”
” New Zealand’s connectivity has never been better, and the DFW flight will make it even simpler for Americans to go there.
According to Sarah Handley, general manager for the Americas and Europe at Tourism New Zealand, it is a wonderful chance to demonstrate our manaakitanga (hospitality, kindness, and respect) as they tour our beautiful nation and enjoy everything that New Zealand has to offer, according to Sarah Handley, general manager for the Americas and Europe at Tourism New Zealand.
Tourists who want to visit cities in Oceania, Australia, and New Zealand are going to DFW Airport more and more.
The airport announced earlier this year that it would provide nonstop Qantas flights to Melbourne, Australia. According to DFW Airport, it would be the first non-West Coast airport to have direct service to Melbourne.
