The new route will offer the only direct flight from Dublin to the ‘Lone Star’ state. The world’s largest airline, American Airlines, will offer a new flight from Dublin (DUB) to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), connecting the two for the first time. The summer seasonal flight will operate 7th June, 2019, through 28th September 2019, and will be flown on American’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

 

“The new direct flight from Dublin to Texas is a welcome first for Irish consumers,” said Caitriona Toner (Country Sales Manager Ireland American Airlines). “The flight will offer customers a chance to experience Dallas and neighbouring Fort Worth, famous for being world-leading business hubs as well as offering authentic Texan food, culture, shopping and hospitality. Or for customers who wish to continue their onward journey, American’s largest hub Dallas Fort Worth offers up to 900 daily departures to destinations across North America, the Caribbean, Latin America and Canada”.
