Royal Brunei Airlines to fly daily non-stop to Heathrow

Royal Brunei Airlines is launching daily non-stop flights between London Heathrow and Brunei International Airport from October 28, 2018.

The non-stop flight to Brunei, a result of the airline dropping its Dubai stopover, will reduce the flight from 18.1 hours to 14.6 hours and the Melbourne-Brunei-London Heathrow route reduced to 23.2 hours from 28.4 hours.

Karam Chand, CEO, Royal Brunei Airlines, says: “The introduction of Royal Brunei’s non-stop flight between London Heathrow and Brunei is a significant milestone as, for the first time, Brunei and the UK will be seamlessly connected by a direct air link. With the strong cultural, economic and political ties between the two countries, we are very proud to be able to provide this daily connection. Our Dubai stopover has served us well but, following an increasing demand from our customers for a direct connection, we have been working toward this goal and are very excited to be able to announce its implementation before the busy Christmas period.

“The approximately 14-hour flight on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will show off our very best in-flight services including 1,000 entertainment options, lower cabin altitude, low noise and less turbulence to help reduce jet lag. We are also looking forward to announcing further product and service innovations throughout 2018.”

While Royal Brunei will cease operating the Dubai-London-Dubai route, the airline will continue to serve the GCC region with four weekly Brunei-Dubai-Brunei services effective 29 October 2018.
