Delta Air Lines To Open a New Route to Australia in Late 2024

Brisbane International Airport has been working hard since the end of the pandemic to recover all of its lost traffic and expand on its 2019 volumes. The Sunshine State Airport has been quite successful in its endeavour. All Chinese carriers have reinstated their flights and now Delta is also readying up to start flying to BNE.

In this post:

Why Its a Good Flight For Both BNE and Delta

For both involved parties this is a very useful flight. From the Brisbane International Airport’s prospective the flight allows it to connect to the network of another major carrier. Allowing an even greater influx of passengers and tourists to Queensland.

Also the flight helps the greater Brisbane economy as the arrival of a Delta wide body jet ensures even more cargo capacity to the richest market on the planet. I’m sure the cargo hold will rarely fly empty.

For the airline it has a double use:

  • Delta can keep a close guard on the 2 other major carriers.
  • Allows DL loyal passengers to have a travel option to cross the Pacific and make their way to Brisbane.

BNE will be the second destination Delta Air Lines serves in Australia after, of course, Sydney (SYD). Lastly Delta’s standing agreement with REX Airlines in Australia offers a simple, convenient and seamless means for onwards travel to the outback or much appreciated coastal destinations.

How Will Delta DL93 Los Angeles to Brisbane Flight Operate?

The first Delta Los Angeles to Brisbane, DL93, flight is scheduled to take off in the final stages of 2024. The launch date is set for December 2024, with services operating on a 3 times weekly frequency.

As for the timing of the flight, here it is in detail:

Delta LogoDL92BrisbaneBNE10:45Los AngelesLAX06:1513h 30m

Both flights are quite conveniently schedule. If you manage to have a good sleep through both of them you should be able to mitigate the effects of jet lag and have a productive day at your destination. Of course the task is much easier if you’re flying closer to the pointy end of the plane.

Which Plane is Delta Planning to Use?

Delta will be operating the flight with one of its most modern planes, the Airbus A350-900. This ULR capable plane is fitted with what I call a 3 and half class configuration.

Mainly the aircraft’s cabin is split in 3 classes featuring:

  • 30 Business Class Seats in a 1-2-1 layout.
  • 48 Premium Economy Class Seats in a 2-4-2 layout.
  • 226 Economy Class Seats in a 3-3-3 layout.

However out of those 226 economy class seats 36 are sold as Delta Comfort+ which come with a better, more generous, seat pitch. Finally each seat comes with seat back IFE and WiFi connectivity is available aboard (upon purchase for most passengers).

All 3 Major US Carriers (+1) Operating Flights to Brisbane

The arrival of Delta Air Lines at Brisbane will be an important event for the Australian international airport. Starting December 4th 2024, the airport will be served by all 3 major US carriers and Canada’s national carrier:

  • United Airlines
  • American Airlines
  • Air Canada
  • Delta Air Lines
