Are airasia x about to make an annoucement about BNE-KUL flights? On the june 2017 timetable provided by BNE, it shows Airasia x arriving at Brisbane at 0445 every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Flight numbers D7272/D7273. Does anyone have any info on this?

While it's not Air Asia, Malindo is looking to launch KUL-DPS-BNE.  The following is the article from Travel Daily on Wednesday.


Malindo Air planning BNE 
Malay carrier Malindo Air is preparing to spread its wings further across Australia, with new flights for the Queensland capital slated to begin at the end of Mar. Operating via Denpasar (Bali), preliminary details of the new service loaded into travel agent GDS’ indicate Malindo Air (OD) will operate daily flights to Brisbane using two-class Boeing 737-800. Debuting on 31 Mar, flight OD157 is scheduled to fly overnight from KUL, departing at 1805, transit in DPS for 50mins before landing in BNE at 0540. Return flight OD158 pushes back from BNE at 0715, arriving into KL at 1545 after a one-hour layover enroute in Denpasar. The route will be Malindo Air’s second Australian destination after it introduced non-stop flights between Kuala Lumpur and Perth in Nov 2015, shortly after which it established a local presence with a reservation centre, managed by its local GSA, Airline Rep Services. Malindo had planned to launch the Brisbane route last Dec. The BNE route, which is yet to appear on OD’s website, will see Malindo compete with Virgin Australia, Jetstar and Qantas on non-stop flights to Denpasar. Malindo Air was unable to confirm the scheduled Brisbane flights at this time to Travel Daily

I doubt it


Look back at AUSBT and you'll see that BNE timetable has had many none existent flights that whilst are all possible never happen.

If Air Asia did launch Brisbane flights they would need to start selling tickets and marketing the route asap otherwise it would be a flop.
