Brisbane, 12 April 2019 - AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline has announced a new partnership becoming the official airline of the NRL’s Brisbane Broncos.

Announced on field with AirAsia cabin crew and Buck the Brisbane Bronco, one lucky Broncos fan took home return flights for two to Bangkok, the airline’s first-ever route from Brisbane, which is set to commence on 26 June 2019.
AirAsia Group Head of Branding Rudy Khaw said, “We are thrilled to partner with Queensland’s number one sports team, and National Rugby League (NRL) favourites, the Brisbane Broncos.
