United Airlines has this week inaugurated services between Brisbane and Los Angeles, as the carrier’s international footprint continues to grow.

This service will operate on a three times per week basis, which brings the airline’s total services at the Australian airport to 10 weekly.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

United Airlines flight UA283 touched down into Brisbane from Los Angeles in the morning of December 1, with this service now joining the already-existing San Francisco service.

Commenting on this inaugural was Gert-Jan de Graaf, the airport’s CEO:

“We expect 1 million passengers will travel through the International Terminal these holidays, up 46% on last year, and the United Airlines services to Los Angeles and San Francisco will be an important part of that growth.”

“To see two Dreamliners from United Airlines on our tarmac for the first time is a magic moment.” 

Adding to this was Tim Wallis, the Regional Manager for Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti at the U.S carrier:

“At United, we’re very proud to expand our services between Brisbane and the U.S. with our first non-stop service to LA.”

“Australians are in the top five sources for international visitors to Los Angeles just as Americans are for Queensland, and we’re happy to offer travellers, and our trade partners, even more choice.  

 “Our strong partnership with Virgin Australia provides excellent connectivity in this part of the world and has helped United be the clear choice for travellers between our two regions.”

“LAX Airport has undergone significant infrastructure works in recent times, improving the transit experience considerably for travellers with U.S. or Latin American connections.” 

“Brisbane Airport Corporation have been wonderful partners to work with, and we enjoy a really collaborative and engaged relationship.”

“We look forward to continuing to grow this partnership, ensuring the success of these UA services, and hopefully leading to future growth.” 

All eyes will be on how this new route between Brisbane and Los Angeles will perform, as well as whether there is scope to expand these flights going into the future.
