After an eight-year hiatus, Royal Brunei Airlines will restart nonstop flights to Brisbane with a four-times-weekly service from June 11, 2019.

Flown aboard an Airbus A320neo aircraft, passengers will leave Brunei at 7:50 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, before landing at Brisbane at 4:45 a.m. the next morning. On the return leg, the flight will leave at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, before arriving back in Brunei at 10:50 p.m.

This relaunched route is Royal Brunei’s second one to Australia after Melbourne, which is served by nonstop flights. In addition, its current nonstop service between London and Brunei means that travelers can now enjoy one-stop flights between Australia and the UK.

Karam Chand, the carrier’s CEO, said: “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 the enjoy many attractions and activities on offer in Brisbane city and its surrounds. 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.”
