Qantas returns to New York, with new flights via Auckland

Qantas will start flying to New York again after three-year pause due to COVID.

Starting from June 14, 2023, the new service will take Aussie travellers to New York via Auckland. The route will operate three days a week at first, using Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Before COVID, Qantas used to fly to New York via Los Angeles, but now they’re changing it up and making it easier for passengers (since transiting at LAX can be painful) by going through Auckland instead. And they’re upgrading the lounge in Auckland too.

The airline will be in direct competition with Air New Zealand on this route. Qantas also plans to fly non-stop to New York as part of Project Sunrise from 2025.

You can book flights from Sydney to Auckland to New York starting today.

Qantas already operates six daily services to Auckland from Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, and that’ll increase to 11 when the new New York flight starts.

In the first week, Qantas is flying two Points Planes, which means every seat in every cabin is available for Classic Reward flight on QF3 and QF4 on June 16. If you’re a Frequent Flyer based in Brisbane or Melbourne, you can also use Classic Rewards for your trans-Tasman flights. So, what are you waiting for? Book your flight now!
