Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has announced that it plans to resume direct flights to Beijing in December 2017, subject to government approval and acquiring the landing slots in Beijing airport.
The expansion of RB’s service into China will begin with a twice weekly service to Beijing using the Airbus A320 CEO and with an additional weekly service added at the earliest opportunity.
RB’s services will depart Brunei for Beijing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 19:55 and arrive at Beijing at 01:00 the following day. The return flights leave Beijing at 02:00 and arrive in Brunei at 07:25 each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Mr Karam Chand, chief executive officer of RB said: “RB last flew to Beijing two decades ago and we are delighted to be connecting the capital cities once again. As national carrier of Brunei Darussalam, the re-introduction of Beijing flights supports the network development and builds on the strong bilateral trade relationship between the two countries.”
