Royal Brunei Airlines opens up Australia with Brisbane route launch

This announcement further opens up the Australia market to UK travellers following the launch of the airline’s daily non-stop route between London Heathrow and Brunei in October 2018, also the one-stop flight to Melbourne.

Royal Brunei Airlines is announcing the launch of non-stop flights between Brunei and Brisbane, solidifying the airline’s position as a key player on the Boomerang route for the UK market.

This announcement further opens up the Australia market to UK travellers following the launch of the airline’s daily non-stop route between London Heathrow and Brunei in October 2018, also the one-stop flight to Melbourne. The inaugural flight to Brisbane will depart from Brunei on 11 June 2019, for the first time since 2011.

Karam Chand, CEO, Royal Brunei Airlines, says: “The reconnection of Brunei and Brisbane is a significant milestone that we are incredibly proud to announce. Our one-stop route from London to Melbourne has already proved very popular and we are delighted to be able to offer UK travellers an additional Australian travel destination."

Thanks to our non-stop route between London and Brunei, UK passengers will be able to travel to Australia in less than 22 hours, with a minimum stopover time in Brunei of just one hour and 55 minutes. Throughout their journey, our guests will experience our unparalleled customer service, a wide range of entertainment options and the comfort of the Boeing-787 Dreamliner and A320neo aircraft.

Adiel Mambara, UK & Ireland Country Manager, Royal Brunei Airlines, adds: “The UK-Australia market is extremely important to us and we are excited to be expanding our network by relaunching flights to Brisbane this year."

Serving Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia’s Sunshine State, allows us to open up an entirely different part of Australia to our guests. They will now have access to the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gold Coast, the surfers’ haven of Byron Bay, and the World Heritage Site Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world. Queensland is also home to the renowned Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands, making it a bucket-list destination for many UK travellers.

With the reintroduction of its Brunei-Brisbane service, Royal Brunei Airlines hopes to encourage passengers travelling from the UK to take advantage of its dual-destination packages, by adding destinations such as Kuching, Kota Kinabalu or Manila to their itinerary via the airline’s hub in Brunei.

UK travellers looking to take advantage of the Brunei stopover have the opportunity to explore a unique and undiscovered destination, home to untouched rainforest, rare species of wildlife, such as the Proboscis monkey, and Kampong Ayer, the world’s largest water village.
