🕐 1 min read

QANTAS Freight has announced new dedicated worldwide freighter service from Australia to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport via Beijing and Chongqing beginning June 8.

The Australia-based carrier will operate the route with Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft, with the service representing the 19th cargo carrier to serve DFW Airport.

“This new service from QANTAS Freight shows further commitment to the Dallas Fort Worth market and our Airport,” said John Ackerman, the airport’s executive vice president of global strategy and development, commenting in a news release.

The flight extends an ongoing strategic expansion of the North Texas airport’s international cargo business. Flight routing will begin in Sydney, Australia and include Chongqing, Shanghai, Chicago, DFW, Los Angeles and back to Sydney with a fueling stop in Honolulu.

The midweek service is expected to bring electronics, e-commerce and general cargo into the US from China, as well as serve as an established gateway to retrieve energy, mining and aerospace cargo in the USA bound for Australia. 

The new route sees DFW Airport reach another mainland China market due to the Chongqing stop. The North Texas air hub handles 60 percent of all air cargo originating in Texas.
