Qantas to launch non-stop flights to Chicago

Qantas has announced that it expects to commence non-stop flights to Chicago following approval from US Authorities for its joint venture with American Airlines. The new route would depart from Brisbane on board a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Also in the pipeline for Qantas once they have received approval are direct Brisbane-San Francisco flights which would complement the already existing services from Sydney and Melbourne. A spokesman advised “this joint venture with American Airlines provides Qantas and American the opportunity to launch several new routes over the next two years”
