Royal Brunei About Royal Brunei Airlines

Royal Brunei Airlines is an airline of the Sultanate of Brunei on the island of Borneo. Royal Brunei Airlines is based in the capital, Bandar Seri Begawan. Created in 1974, Royal Brunei Airlines ensured its first flight on April 14, 1975 between Brunei airport and Singapore. On the same day, flights to Hong Kong and Malaysia are provided. The company grew rapidly, and thus offered to fly to the Philippines and Bangkok two years later.

In 1980, it acquired a third Boeing 737-200, which enabled it to open a new line to Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta, expanding its network in Southeast Asia. Royal Brunei Airlines continues its progress with the purchase of a new Boeing 767-300 in 1990 which allows it to establish a link between Brunei and Europe, via Bangkok and Dubai. The airline’s rapid growth was severely dampened by the Asian crisis at the end of the 1990s, so that Royal Brunei Airlines had to reduce its air fleet and its route network. The beginning of the 20th century will be synonymous with change for the company: in 2003 it began a project to restructure its fleet, and wanted to go from 9 to 24 aircraft by 2013. From 2004 until 2010, Royal Brunei envisaged to invest $ 400 million in the purchase of much stronger and more efficient devices.

As the sale of alcohol is prohibited in Brunei, no alcoholic beverages are served or sold on board. All dishes are halal, i.e. prepared according to Islamic law. In the menus, particular emphasis was placed on diversity and healthy and light food. The on-board magazine is called Muhibah. Royal Brunei Airlines has five different tariffs to meet the needs of all passengers. The low-cost fares are known as Bluesky Fares and were introduced to face the growing competition from low-cost airlines. The range of Bluesky Fares is limited, however, and miles cannot be earned with these flights. The frequent flyer program is called Royal Skies. Awards are free flights and ticket upgrades. The lounge at Brunei Airport is known as the Sky Lounge. There are prayer rooms, massage chairs and showers, among other things. As with all products from Royal Brunei Airlines, customers there receive the highest level of comfort.

Requests relating to special eating habits can be made by telephone up to 24 hours before the start of the journey. The list of special meals includes child and baby food as well as light and raw food, gluten-free dishes and options for diabetics and allergy sufferers.

In business, Royal Brunei Airlines promises on-board catering at the level of a first class, but without publishing sample menus. Travel bloggers report on opulent five-course menus in the business, which could be enjoyed from porcelain and at an individually determined time. Chicken, fresh fruit, vegetable soup, cheese platter, ice cream – hardly a wish was left unfulfilled. Frequent flyers note that the consumption of alcohol bought in the duty-free area on board is usually tolerated.

As long as you can survive a flight without alcohol, Royal Brunei Airlines will take care of you in both booking classes. The food and non-alcoholic beverages received consistently high marks on internet portals.
