United Airlines Launches Service Between Brisbane and Los Angeles

United Airlines has launched a new service between Brisbane and Los Angeles with its inaugural flight of a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner named UA284. This non-stop service will fly three times a week and significantly increase the capacity to the United States out of Brisbane. The new service brings the total number of flights between Brisbane and the U.S. to ten weekly. There are now daily non-stop flights between Brisbane and San Francisco and non-stop flights between Brisbane and Los Angeles three times a week.

“At United, we’re proud to expand our services between Brisbane and the U.S. with our first non-stop service to LA. Australians are in the top five sources for international visitors to Los Angeles just as Americans are for Queensland, and we’re happy to offer travellers, and our trade partners, even more choice,” said Tim Wallis, Regional Manager – Australia, New Zealand, and Tahiti.

The new service will provide a significant boost to Queensland tourism, helping to increase the number of American visitors to the region. Brisbane Airport Chief Executive Officer Gert-Jan de Graaff, said “We are excited to see the launch of this service in time for the start of the summer holidays. We know a trip to LA and Disneyland has long been a bucket list item for many families. It is also great news for Queensland exporters. To see two Dreamliners from United Airlines on our tarmac for the first time is a magical moment.”

United Airlines now has more flights between the U.S. and Australia and the U.S. and New Zealand than any other carrier in the world, as well as more than all other carriers in the U.S. combined. By the end of this year, United will operate 66 flights between the U.S. and the South Pacific region every week. With nearly 50% growth over the past year, it is the largest expansion to the region in U.S. aviation history.

United Airlines now flies non-stop services out of Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane to Los Angeles and San Francisco, with connections to more than 270 destinations across the Americas. Wallis added, “Our strong partnership with Virgin Australia provides excellent connectivity in this part of the world and has helped United become the clear choice for travellers between our two regions. LAX Airport has undergone significant infrastructure works, improving the transit experience considerably for travellers with U.S. or Latin American connections.”

The new service is expected to increase traffic through Brisbane’s International Terminal by 46% compared to the previous year, with an estimated one million passengers expected to travel through the terminal during the upcoming summer holidays. United’s expansion to the South Pacific region has recently seen additional services added throughout Australia, to now offer daily flights to Los Angeles and twice daily flights to San Francisco from Sydney, daily flights to both San Francisco and Los Angeles from Melbourne, as well as increased passenger capacity on the San Francisco to Melbourne route.
