The shortest distance between the United States and Australia is around 7,500 miles (12,066 km) and, therefore, the easiest way to travel between the two countries is by flying.
The most convenient departure airports are those on the west coast, as they offer non-stop flights to Australia. These include Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), and Honolulu (HNL). There are also non-stop flights from Houston (IAH), although these are typically seasonal.
Travelers who are flying from the east coast shouldn’t worry, as there are plenty of connecting flights available (typically via one of the airports noted above).
The most popular arrival airports in Australia include Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
