Brisbane is about to join the AirAsia network, with the launch of Brisbane-Bangkok services. Flights kick off in June 2019 with 4 flights per week. They will be operated by Thai AirAsia X from its base at Don Mueang Airport, Bangkok. As one of the world’s largest low-cost hubs, this puts travellers within reach of countless destinations, including 130 on AirAsia’s network alone.
While the Gold Coast saw the first ever AirAsia X flight to Kuala Lumpur over 10 years ago, Brisbane has yet to see those familiar red and white planes. This is a welcome move, with Brisbane being the last of Australia’s major gateways to see services from a long-haul low-cost airline other than Jetstar.
|Bangkok Don Mueang – Brisbane||XJ 310||23:40||11:35+1||Mon, Tue, Fri, Sat|
|Brisbane – Bangkok Don Mueang||XJ 311||12:50||19:10||Tue, Wed, Sat, Sun|
Travellers from Bangkok will have a night flight over to Brisbane, arriving just in time for lunch. We recommend pre-ordering breakfast off the Santan menu prior to flying to ensure you don’t miss out on a meal on this 9-hour flight.
The return trip is a day flight, leaving just after lunch. Arrival into Bangkok will allow late transfers to a handful of flights. Even if you are continuing your journey, this is a perfect excuse to check out Bangkok with an overnight stop.

The inaugural flight departs Bangkok on 25 June 2019, touching down in Brisbane on 26 June at 11:35AM. To celebrate the milestone, AirAsia is today launching sale fares from Brisbane to Bangkok starting at just AUD 239. These fares are on sale from February 7 to 17, for travel from June 26 to October 26, 2019. To book, and to see full sale terms and conditions, visit airasia.com.
