Royal Brunei - Any News?

Fri Apr 27, 2007 9:32 am


Brunei agreement

The Government has struck an air services agreement with Brunei, increasing Australian carriers’ capacity to 26 services a week from November 2008. The move allows Royal Brunei Airlines expanded capacity of up to six flights per week to Brisbane and Perth, rising to seven in 2008.

Last I heard, Brisbane/Auckland was to increase to 4 weekly...

Any new news on the 777s? I heard they were due to fly selected PER/BNE/AKL/SYD/LHR/DXB flights.

Is FRA still due to be given the chop?

Think we'll see BI look at new services? Non-stop BWN-AKL perhaps?

Just wondering if they're making any money on any of these routes... or does that not really matter to Brunei?

BI has never been profitable every since their formation in 1976.

Brunei have just agreed on a new Air Services agreement with Australia with increased rights overall to all current ports (incl Sydney), immediate rights to MEL and permission to run fifth freedom from Adelaide to NZ.
