Royal Brunei Airlines has announced that it will fly to Melbourne from March 2011, complementing its existing services to Perth and Brisbane.
Bandar Seri Begawan based Royal Brunei will fly four times weekly to the Victorian capital from March 29. The airline is expected to use its Boeing 777-200ERs on the services, which are currently used on its flights to Brisbane.
“With the launch of the Melbourne flights, Royal Brunei Airlines will be able to meet demand for seats to Melbourne from across our Asian and UK networks, while also expanding our presence in Australia,” said the airline’s executive VP of commercial & Planning, Riaz Moiz. “Trade links between the two countries will also be enhanced. The addition of Melbourne is another positive step towards establishing Brunei as a competitive hub in the Asia Pacific region.”
