Today, Qantas has announced a new route between the US and Australia. This new route will be a new destination for Qantas, Chicago. They announced via their Instagram that Qantas will fly a 787-9 from Brisbane to Chicago, and the new route is pending approval from US authorities
Qantas predicts this route will be launched in April of 2020, and this route will be the second nonstop route connecting Oceania and Chicago. The first, of course, is Air New Zealand’s Auckland to Chicago route!
As a Chicagoan, I think this will help connect Chicago to Oceania, as that market is much to be desired in Chicago. I know many friends, and myself included, want to visit Oceania at some point!
