New American Airlines route offers direct link from Dublin to Dallas/Fort Worth
Jan 29, 2019: One of the largest US carriers American Airlines will offer a new nonstop flight from Dublin (DUB) to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), directly connecting the two for the first time in the airline's history.
The seasonal flight will operate June 7, 2019, through September 28, 2019, and will be flown on the cargo-friendly, fuel-efficient Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
The freight division of American Airlines will benefit from the new flight as customers with a diverse range of commodities are already expressing interest in the flight. The potential commodities are computer parts, medical devices, machinery, oil industry equipment, aviation parts and pharmaceuticals.
With American having close to 900 departures from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub this summer, traffic from Dublin is ideally positioned to take advantage of the rest of the carrier's global network.
"This first, direct, scheduled service from Ireland to Texas will open up a number of new markets for both Irish and multinational exporters with freight destined for Dallas and beyond," said Andy Cornwell, American Airlines Cargo's Regional manager %u2013 Northern Europe.
In Ireland, American's long-standing General Sales Agent (GSA), International Airline Marketing, will continue to represent the carrier locally.
In addition to American's new DUB flight to DFW, the airline also offers flights from DUB to Charlotte (CLT), Chicago O'Hare (ORD) and Philadelphia (PHL), as well as seasonal service from Shannon (SNN) to PHL.
