History will be made when an American Airlines airplane takes off from DFW Airport Thursday morning and land in Dublin, Ireland after about 9 hours.

American Airline launched new nonstop service from DFW Airport to Dublin, making it the first and only nonstop service between Texas and the sovereign country in the British Isle.

The airline is also launching nonstop service to Munich, which will be DFW Airport’s third daily nonstop flight to Germany.

“[The services] marks an important milestone for DFW Airport as we work to increase connectivity to Europe, linking North Texas to key business and leisure destinations,” said John Ackerman, DFW’s executive vice president of Global Strategy and Development. “We are confident the addition of Dublin and Munich to our offerings at DFW will be popular with both business and leisure travelers alike and will contribute to our region’s growth for inbound tourism, and trade,”

The latest routes to Europe adds to American Airlines’ ever-increasing growth plan. The airline now surpasses 900 daily flights at DFW Airport.

“By growing our largest and most profitable hub, we are building the world’s most connected network,” said Vasu Raja, Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning for American. “We’re making the world a smaller and more connected place by adding small communities like Harlingen, Texas, to global cities like Dublin and Munich.”

DFW Airport now has direct access to 9 European cities. Five years ago, it was connected to only 5 cities in Europe.

American Airlines is at the forefront of the airport’s growth, fostering it even more.

Last month, DFW International Airport and American Airlines collectively announced its plan to build and develop a new, sixth terminal at the airport, Terminal F.

The airlines also opened 15 new gates last month at Terminal E to support the more than 100 daily regional flights it provides.

Enhancing customer experience, American Airlines then opened its the Flagship Lounge, a 35,000-square-foot lounge which provides access to quiet spaces, luxury showers, and fine dining.

With the addition of the newest flight services, the airline now offers more than 9,000 one-stop connections through DFW Airport, which makes it the largest airline hub in the world.

In 2019, American Airlines has started services to 23 new markets from DFW.

“American has demonstrated tremendous confidence in DFW and the entire North Texas region by adding these flights and continuing to grow at an unprecedented rate,” Ackerman said.

A basic round from DFW to Dublin in late June costs about $2,000, according to its website.
