Royal Brunei Airlines Spreads Its Wings to Brisbane
Royal Brunei Airlines will be expanding its reach across the land down under with its recommencement of flights to Brisbane as of 11 June 2019, launching four flights per week.
“RB is delighted to recommence services to Brisbane, a very popular destination for Bruneians and guests from our expanding route network,” said Mr Karam Chand, Royal Brunei Airlines CEO. “We have very good connections from United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, East Asia and Southeast Asia to and from Brisbane. Our guests will experience the very best of Bruneian hospitality flying on our fleet of B787 Dreamliners and A320NEO’s.”
The national airline already has direct flights to Melbourne, and the addition of direct flights to Brisbane offers passengers more opportunities to experience the vibrant city and Queensland, the sunshine state of Australia.
“We offer great value to our Australian guests and exciting destinations such as Brunei, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Ho Chi Minh City to name a few which could be packaged as single or dual destination holidays. Bruneians and the expat community will not only enjoy the many attractions and activities in Brisbane city, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are just over an hour away from the CBD. Brisbane is also a gateway to many popular tourism spots in Queensland such as Cairns, Port Douglas, Fraser Island and the Whitsundays,” said Mr Karam Chand, Royal Brunei Airlines CEO.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk lauded the move, commenting on the increase of visitors to Queensland and the support of more than 720 jobs.
“Improving access to Queensland and securing direct flights from key visitor markets like the UK is vital when it comes to growing our share of the global tourism market. This new service will allow us to welcome more tourists from the United Kingdom – Queensland’s third largest international market – connecting via Bandar Seri Begawan which is a hub for international travellers,” the Premier said.
Royal Brunei Airlines will operate its Brisbane flight four times weekly with its A320NEO fleet from 11 June 2019. For more information, visit the Royal Brunei Airlines website.
