Dear Guests,

Welcome aboard Royal Brunei Airlines!

With this first edition of MUHIBAH for 2020, I would like to extend my best wishes for a healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year to all our guests. To our Chinese guests, partners and industry colleagues, we wish you a very auspicious and happy Lunar New Year.

And to all Bruneians, a very happy 36th National Day this 23 February, 2020!

Royal Brunei Airlines is fully committed to doing our share in reducing carbon emissions. We have acquired environmental-friendly aircraft such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A320neo. Both aircraft are well known in the industry for its eco credentials. The B787 fuel consumption is 20 percent lower than an equivalent aircraft, reducing NOx and carbon emissions. Meanwhile, the A320neo provides a 50 percent reduction in noise footprint and 50 percent less NOx emissions – beating current industry standards for its eco credentials. It also produces up to 5,000 tonnes less carbon dioxide emissions per year per aircraft. RB is also taking other measures such as less use of ancillary power units, taxiing on a single engine, introducing a new flight planning tool to optimise flights, and reducing journey times as much as possible.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently published information confirming that carbon emissions per passenger has declined by more than 50 percent since 1990. Much of the improvement is a result of the industry having achieved an annual fuel efficiency improvement of 2.3 percent over the period since 2009. In addition to our investments in aircraft and operational efficiencies, RB is committed to the introduction of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) to support global effort to be at carbon-neutral growth on international flights from 2020.

I also take this opportunity to thank our guests for the support we have enjoyed in 2019. Our big thank you to the local and expatriate community in Brunei Darussalam for your ongoing support to the national carrier. The many achievements over the past decade would not have been possible without you.

To all our guests, especially those who are planning their next trip or in transit, do consider a stopover in beautiful Brunei, and Borneo Island. There are many attractions that are unique – such as the Kampong Ayer (water village), dive sites and rainforests which are some of the most pristine in the world – and equally an experience are Brunei’s culture and food. You can further enrich your visit to Brunei with discovering other hidden gems of Borneo Island with our newly launched RB Link destinations to Tawau and Sandakan.

We look forward to serve you in 2020 and offer our very best Bruneian hospitality on ground and in air. We wish you a pleasant trip, and rest assure that our dedicated team will do their utmost to ensure you have a comfortable, pleasant and enjoyable journey.

Thank you for choosing to fly with us.

Betterfly Royal Brunei.

Warmest regards,
Karam Chand
Chief Executive Officer
