Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport has announced American Airlines will add new non-stop service to Auckland, New Zealand, beginning October 2020, the company said.
The addition of non-stop service between DFW Airport and Auckland gives the millions who pass through the Airport annually more choices when making travel plans and provides economic benefit for the entire region.
The Airport welcomed 73.3 million customers during fiscal year 2019, a 6.1 percent increase from the previous year, and has added or announced non-stop service to 30 new destinations since January 2019. The growth is driven in large part by a surge in international service, with DFW Airport welcoming 9.4 million international passengers during fiscal year 2019. This marks an 8.8 percent increase in international passengers compared to the previous year. Auckland is the 14th new international destination added since January 2019.
DFW Airport remains committed to working closely with American Airlines on plans for Terminal F. While design and operational plans are still being finalized, a long-term projection of up to 24 gates in the new facility will help address the continued growth at the Airport, as well as accommodate a changing aviation industry, utilizing innovative technologies to facilitate the movement of customers, maintain cost efficiencies for airlines and improve operational performance.
