Passengers on the UK – Australia “Boomerang Route” will have a new way to travel from 11 June when Royal Brunei Airlines begins flights between its home base and Brisbane for the first time since 2011. The non-stop service will be Airbus A320neo.
The airline is already consolidating its position as a key player on the Down Under route following the launch of daily non-stops by Boeing 777 Dreamliner between Heathrow and Brunei in October 2018 offering connections to Melbourne.
CEO Karam Chand said: “We are proud to announce the reconnection of Brunei and Brisbane. Our one-stop London – Melbourne route has proved very popular and we are delighted to offer UK travellers an additional Australian travel destination.
“Thanks to our non-stop route between London and Brunei, UK passengers can travel to Australia in less than 22hr, with a minimum stopover time in Brunei of just 1hr 55min.”
UK & Ireland country manager Adiel Mambara added: “The UK – Australia market is extremely important to us and serving Brisbane again allows us to open up an entirely different part of the continent to our guests.”
Royal Brunei is also offering dual-destination packages to passengers travelling from the UK to places such as Kuching, Kota Kinabalu or Manila via the Brunei hub.
