American Airlines returns to Hollywood with Los Angeles – Auckland route


 Launching on Dec. 21, the new route to Hollywood marks the airline’s second operation to Auckland, following the successful launch of its Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) route in late 2022. The introduction of LAX to its roster marks American’s continued focus on strengthening its Asia-Pacific footprint, ensuring customers are provided with opportunity and means to explore new destinations.

Los Angeles also serves as an important gateway to explore the continental U.S., Hawaii and Mexico.

“The response we had from the New Zealand public when we returned to shores last year was overwhelmingly positive, so we’re excited to be launching our new seasonal LAX route later this year,” said Kyle Mabry, American’s Vice President of Operations and Commercial, EMEA & APAC. “Working closely again with our partners at Auckland Airport, we aim to provide customers with a sustainable, seamless travel experience that opens them up to new destinations, adventures and memories.”

Seasonal daily service between the City of Sails and LAX will operate until Mar. 3 with a Boeing 787-9 aircraft, offering customers a world-class flight experience complete with Flagship® Business and Premium Economy cabins, high-speed Wi-Fi, and hundreds of movies and TV shows on-demand at every seat.

American’s inaugural LAX–AKL flight will land at Auckland Airport Dec. 23 and will depart for LAX Dec. 23. American also offers codeshare service between AKL and LAX operated by oneworld® alliance partner, Qantas.
