Delta has announced a new seasonal route between Los Angeles and Brisbane, set to begin in December 2024 and operate three times a week until March 2025. 

Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior vice president of Network Planning, revealed that this addition to their upcoming summer schedule will offer customers up to 17 weekly flights between Australia and the U.S., marking their most extensive schedule to the South Pacific to date.


Gert-Jan de Graaff, CEO of Brisbane Airport, expressed his pride in becoming Delta’s second destination in Australia. He highlighted Brisbane’s growing appeal to North American visitors, attributing it to factors such as the upcoming Olympics and the popularity of cultural icons like Bluey. De Graaff emphasized the significance of Delta’s move in strengthening ties between the United States and Queensland, boosting the local visitor economy, and opening doors to explore destinations like the Gold Coast, Noosa, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Outback.

Delta’s expansion to Brisbane provides U.S. customers ample opportunities to immerse themselves in Australia’s charm, from exploring Brisbane’s art galleries and scenic cycling trails to venturing to the world’s largest Koala sanctuary. The airline’s network also facilitates easy access to popular Queensland destinations such as the Gold Coast, Noosa, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Outback, enriching the travel experience for passengers.
