Royal Brunei to recommence services to Vietnam

Royal Brunei Airlines will restart services to Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City to close up a perceived gap in coverage between its Hong Kong and Bangkok destinations. The route was previously dropped in October 2011.

Royal Brunei deputy chairman Dermot Mannion said the route was reinstated based on the potential for “connections to key markets from Melbourne, Dubai and London.”

Mannion also said the new routing would also link to expanding Vietnamese tourism business for regional destinations in Brunei and West Malaysia. “Ho Chi Minh City emerged a frontrunner in providing [international] connections [and for] regional destinations like Kota Kinabalu,” Mannion said.

Royal Brunei will operate the four-times-weekly flights from Brunei’s Bandar Seri Begawan to Ho Chi Minh’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport using an A319 on weekdays, and an A320 for weekend flights.
