How long does it take to fly to the USA?

The United States is a popular destination for Australian travellers. The fastest non-stop flight to the USA operates from Sydney to Los Angeles in under 14h.

However, flights can take up to 40h depending on your departure city, destination, airline and transit time. For example, flights from Melbourne and Brisbane to LAX take up to 39h due to long stopovers. If you are travelling from Perth, you can get to Los Angeles or San Francisco in around 30h on Qatar Airways. Travellers planning a trip to the east coast of the US can connect via Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) or Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD).
