We offer consolidator fares on the following airlines that fly non-stop from the continental United States to Australia – Consider their features and benefits when selecting your best flights.
Qantas, Australia’s airline, offers daily non-stop flights from Los Angeles to Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney; and from Dallas-Fort Worth to Sydney and Brisbane. Qantas offers add-on flights operated by American Airlines from many gateways in the US to connect to their flights leaving for Australia. Qantas frequently has low season flight specials and special bonus offers on its Aussie AirPass.
Qantas has an extensive network of domestic flights within Australia and over to New Zealand. Travelers who fly with Qantas internationally receive a slight discount on domestic flights included on their international ticket, and are allowed the same checked luggage allowance.
United flies from Los Angeles and San Francisco non-stop to Sydney, with a connecting flight to Melbourne. United provides seamless flights from other cities in the US to connect to their flights in Los Angeles and San Francisco. United has infrequent special sales on these flights.
United does not offer any domestic flights within Australia.
One of the newest additions to the Virgin Airlines Group, Virgin Australia flies non-stop from Los Angeles with consolidator flights to Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. Connecting flights are available on Delta and Virgin America from other cities within the US. Virgin Australia frequently has special offers and promotions for low season flights to Australia.
Delta Air Lines
Delta initiated service to Sydney, Australia in 2009. Their announcement of code-sharing flights with Virgin Airlines, specifically Virgin Australia, will increase the availability of flights to Australia for Delta’s frequent flier members. Additionally, Delta’s Sky Miles Club members can relax in Virgin Australia’s luxurious airport lounges when traveling within Australia on Virgin or internationally on Delta or Virgin. Consolidator flights to Australia on Delta are typically not available.
American Airlines does not operate flights to Australia. Through its code-share partnership with Qantas, you can find flights to Australia with American flight numbers, but these flights are operated by Qantas.
One-stop Consolidator Flights to Australia
The following airlines offer consolidator flights to Australia from the US and Canada with one-stop before reaching the destination. While flight-time increases with the additional stop, it is often possible to include a few days or more at the stop-over destination for a minimal charge.
Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand offers excellent value on its flights to Australia, especially if you’re planning to visit New Zealand during your trip Downunder. Air New Zealand flights depart daily from both Los Angeles and San Francisco to Auckland. From there, travelers connect to a flight to Sydney – or linger longer in New Zealand. Non-stop flights to Australia from New Zealand are available from Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
Through its code-share agreements with United Airlines, travelers are able to connect to Air New Zealand’s international flights from a variety of US gateway cities. And through its code-share agreements with Virgin Australia, it is possible to include domestic flights within Australia on your international ticket.
Rebranded in mid-2013, Air Pacific has a new name, new look, new planes and in-flight services. Departing from Los Angeles to Fiji’s international airport in Nadi, Fiji Airways offers connecting flights to Sydney and Auckland, too.
Hawaiian Airlines is expanding and now offers flights to Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. Hawaiian does not operate any flights within Australia or New Zealand
Flying to Australia via Asia
AirBank offers consolidator flights on several Asian airlines to Australia. Often these flights, departing from Los Angeles, are the lowest priced. However, the flight time is more than doubled by flying to South Korea or China and then flying back to Australia. Unless you’re planning to include an Asian city on your trip, we do not recommend these flights.
Travelers on the East coast of North America might consider flying East as an option to reach Australia. For the most part, flying East takes slightly longer and is more expensive – however if you’d like to include a visit to Dubai or Abu Dhabi with your Australian vacation – or if you just prefer the luxury and comfort of flying with award-winning, top rated airlines, consider flying East.
Both Emirates and Etihad have daily non-stop flights from several destinations within the US and Canada to their respective hubs that connect to flights to Australia.
Tip for Travelers Departing for Australia from JFK
Qantas offers the only international flight from JFK to Australia. QF 108 flies from JFK to Los Angeles daily to connect to flights to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Because flight QF 108 uses a larger, international airplane, even economy class offers more space and leg room than Qantas’ code-share flights, which are on smaller planes and operated by American Airlines, to Los Angeles.
