Delta is building on its largest-ever (Southern Hemisphere) summer schedule to the South Pacific with the launch of a seasonal route from Los Angeles to Brisbane, Australia, that begins 4 December 2024.

The first flight departing Brisbane will be on 6 December 2024, and will operate three times per week through 28 March 2025. 

“With this addition of Brisbane, Delta’s upcoming summer schedule will offer our customers up to 17 weekly flights between Australia and the U.S.,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning.

“This marks our most extensive schedule to the South Pacific to date, and as we build our presence in the region, we know our customers will enjoy the enhanced experience consistently provided by Delta.” 

This route opens doors for more Australian travelers to indulge in the glamorous allure of Hollywood in Los Angeles or to take advantage of more than 40 convenient one-stop connections to popular U.S. cities. Whether it’s the scenic views in Seattle, vibrant nightlife in Miami, or iconic landmarks in New York City, there’s a wealth of experiences waiting to be explored. 

Delta will now serve two cities in Australia, including Sydney, giving U.S. customers ample opportunities to immerse themselves in Australia’s charm. Our customers will enjoy Queensland where they can experience Brisbane’s art galleries, scenic cycling trails, vibrant food markets, and the world’s largest Koala sanctuary. Brisbane offers easy access to other popular Queensland destinations including the Gold Coast Noosa, the Great Barrier Reef and the Outback. 

An elevated journey that begins on the ground

Delta’s state-of-the-art Sky Way at LAX welcomes travelers from arrival to departure. Terminal 3, a nearly 111,500 square metre, 27-gate complex, redefines travel convenience with a centralised check-in lobby, expanded security checkpoint, and an award-winning Delta Sky Club, recognised as North America’s Best Airline Lounge by Business Traveler USA in 2023. 

Delta One customers are invited to make use of an exclusive check-in area, which provides a private TSA screening lane and direct access to the Delta Sky Club. Eligible customers can also take advantage of Delta Digital ID at LAX, providing hands-free bag check and security for TSA PreCheck members opting in via the Fly Delta app. 

Delta will further redefine the West Coast travel experience when it opens a premium lounge at LAX later this year. 

A premium experience in the air

This route will operate on the Airbus A350-900 with four product experiences: Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.

Delta One customers experience increased privacy and the luxury of a fully reclining seat, accompanied by plush bedding crafted from recycled materials, artisan-made amenity kits, chef-curated meals, and additional comforts. Meanwhile, Delta Premium Select passengers enjoy a wider seat with a deeper recline and an adjustable footrest and leg rest expanded space, an enhanced dining experience, and various other thoughtful amenities. 

Customers can also anticipate a recently refreshed food and beverage program featuring carefully curated menu selections, including specialty snacks, as well as a premium array of beer, wine, and spirit choices. And all passengers can enjoy a wide selection of in-flight entertainment options, with complimentary access to 1,000+ hours of content on Delta Studio. 

Expanding in the South Pacific

Delta’s Brisbane-to LAX route is the latest in a series of investments the airline – already the leading global carrier at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) – is making in the South Pacific region. In summer 2022, Delta introduced a second seasonal frequency from Sydney to LAX, providing customers access to Los Angeles via 14 flights per week. 

The airline also launched daily service from Auckland, New Zealand to LAX, in October 2023 and three-times-weekly flights between Tahiti and LAX in December 2022.
