Dublin Airport has announced a new American Airlines’ daily direct service to Dallas Fort Worth.

The new route will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and will be Ireland’s first direct flight to Dallas, which is American’s largest hub for connecting traffic. 

From Dallas, Irish travellers can connect onto top onward destinations including Hawaii, Las Vegas, Cancun, Los Angeles and New Orleans.

"Dallas is an excellent addition to the existing route network from Dublin Airport and we are thrilled that American Airlines will be serving this market with a daily summer service," said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison. 

Dallas Fort Worth Airport welcomed 67 million passengers last year, making it the twelfth largest airport in the world. American Airlines operates more than 800 flights per day from Dallas to destinations across the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada and South America.

The new route will operate daily from today until September 28, 2019, departing Dallas at 20.35 and arriving in Dublin at 11.40 the following day. The return flight will depart Dublin at 13.40, arriving in Dallas at 17.45.
