Direct flights are incredibly convenient and make travelling much easier. Increasing the numbers of long-haul flights will only encourage Australians to embark on more adventurous journeys to the far corners of the world.

Qantas has announced that it will provide direct flights from Sydney to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport from the 16th of May 2011. This new route will be the longest service in the world by 747 aircraft; it will carry passengers 13,804 kilometres. According to online holiday experts Jetabroad, these flights will make life easier for Australian travellers looking to head to North America. Darin Walters, MD of Jetabroad, comments: “This new route will allow customers to explore North America with much greater ease; Dallas Fort Worth is a major connecting airport and many destinations are best accessed through it. Direct flights to Dallas will allow tourists to cut one step out of their travel plans, and help take away some of the stress of flying.”
Qantas plans on offering four return flights to Dallas Fort Worth every week; services returning to Australia will be routed through Brisbane. Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is one of the largest airports in the United States: in 2009 alone, 56 million people passed through its gates with 59% of passengers taking connecting flights on to other destinations.
Walters believes that this record setting flight is a positive development for Australians looking to embark on significant journeys. He comments: “This is obviously good news for travellers looking to fly to North America, yet it will also hopefully be followed by even more direct flights to destinations around the world. Modern aircraft have incredible range, and as airlines like Qantas use them to their full potential it will allow people to cover great distances in one fell swoop. We can look forward to a future where many more destinations can be reached directly from airports in Australia.”
Walters concludes that these flights will be a strong incentive for people to travel further afield. He states: “Direct flights are incredibly convenient and make travelling much easier. Increasing the numbers of long-haul flights will only encourage Australians to embark on more adventurous journeys to the far corners of the world.”
