Indonesia AirAsia Extra finally began service on 18 March between Denpasar (DPS) in Indonesia and Melbourne (MEL) in Australia. The 4,379-kilometre service is operated five times weekly by the airline’s A330-300s. The route is already well served by Jetstar Airways (nine times weekly), Virgin Australia (also nine times weekly) and Garuda Indonesia (daily). The route was originally supposed to launch in late December 2014 but it seems not all the relevant paperwork had been done in time.
