Malindo Air has released their February in-flight magazine route map, and this issue has a new destination on it, Brisbane. There has been talking about services for a while now, but this could now be a sign that the route is definitely going ahead.

The airline already operates a Kuala Lumpur – Perth service with a 737, so I’d assume they would use the same for the Brisbane service. The airline has a fleet of 1 A330-300 which is used for Jeddah services only, 16 ATR72-600’s, 22 737-800’s and six 737-900ER’s.
I’d assume the -800 variant will be used on the flight, and the aircraft features 12 business class seats and 150 economy seats.
The business class seats include an 11.1-inch IFE screen, 40Kgs of luggage allowance, lounge access in Kuala Lumpur, USB and Powerpoint access and even complimentary WIFI.
The economy seats have a pitch of 32, ” and the business seats have a pitch of 45.” The meals in business are full service, but for the economy, it’s buy onboard. The airline isn’t a low cost carrier but rather a hubrid. Its parent company Lion Air is an LCC.
I’m intrigued to why the airline hasn’t actually announced the new route, but I’d say they will be very soon if they’ve already made it public.
