Royal Brunei Airlines unveiled a new fare structure, including a series of new options for economy and business class passengers, increased baggage allowance and more mileage earning options.
Under the newly-rebranded ‘Betterfly’ fares, economy class tickets have been split into three options – RB Saver, RB Value and RB Flexi. All three economy class types offer 30kg of checked baggage for long-haul routes to London, Melbourne, Dubai and Jeddah; for all other routes the baggage allowance is 23kg for the RB Saver, 25kg for RB Value and 30kg for RB Flexi. RB Flexi fares also offer 100% Royal Skies mileage accrual and free booking changes.
In its premium cabin, Royal Brunei is now offering two fare types: Business Saver and Business. Both include 40kg of checked baggage on all global routes, while Business Saver provides 125% mileage accrual and Business offers 150%.
“The update to our fare conditions is amongst RB’s many efforts to provide our customers with a more enjoyable and seamless travel experience. We believe our passengers will appreciate the increased baggage allowance; and other fare product features,” said Karam Chand, the airline’s recently-appointed CEO. “These changes have been introduced in line with our market segmentation strategy that is to better align the product to the needs of leisure, SME, high end leisure and corporate customers.”
The new fare types are now applicable for all Royal Brunei flights purchased from the airline’s website, call centre and travel agents.
Royal Brunei currently operates a fleet of 10 aircraft to 15 destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. It was also the first Southeast Asian airline to introduce the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. All of Royal Brunei’s aircraft feature two passenger cabins – business and economy.
