Qantas is an Australia-based airline that is one of the best known carriers to Australia. It’s popularity rose after being mentioned in Rain Man with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise as being one of the airlines with best safety records.

Qantas announced this week that as of May 16, 2011 they will be adding Dallas-Ft. Worth as a direct flight to Sydney and are dropping San Francisco. This 16-hour flight will be the longest flight for a 747 and third longest flight in the world. However, you will be able to bypass Los Angeles which can be a huge bonus for some! The flights back from Australia to Texas will be routed through Brisbane due to winds and a few other factors.

To promote and market this new flight Qantas has some deals that are pricing as low $670 per person for a 1-way ticket (tempting).

If you take advantage of the cheapest fares we’ve seen to Australia in 2 years and would then like to plan an adventure please consult one ofour specialists to put together a dynamite adventure for you.
