Dear Guests,

Welcome aboard Royal Brunei Airlines!

October 2017 will be a very exciting time for the people of Brunei Darussalam and the nation. The Golden Jubilee of His Majesty’s Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, accession to the throne will be celebrated during this month.

The key event will take place on 5 October with a parade and celebrations in Bandar Seri Begawan, where citizens and visitors alike will be able to take part in the various planned activities. The event will be graced by His Majesty, members of the Royal family, visiting Heads of States & Governments, and other dignitaries. This is a once in a lifetime event and we encourage everyone to witness the celebrations. Other significant events planned as part of the celebrations include the opening of the new Sungai Kebun Bridge, the float parade and various activities held in each of the four districts of Brunei Darussalam.

His Majesty is one of the longest serving monarchs in the world and a prominent international leader who has successfully guided Brunei to even greater heights, where citizens and residents live in peace, harmony and enjoy one of the best living standards in the world.

Royal Brunei Airlines is grateful to His Majesty and the Brunei Government for the support over the last 43 years. RB would not be the top 10 most loved airlines in the world without His Majesty’s support and guidance. We dedicate part of this edition to capture the wonderful moments we have had with His Majesty going to back to the royal inspection of RB’s first aircraft in 1974, and more recently to the iconic flight around Brunei’s airspace in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in 2016. As part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations, we will be sharing a “Journey Over Time” pictorial throughout October and beyond in our social media and in a special supplement in Borneo Bulletin.

RB is pleased to release its next new innovation – our 24/7 online dynamic planning and bundling of products for your holiday. This easy-to-use website and booking system lets guests plan and purchase their entire holiday products from flights, accommodation, tours and transport in one convenient place and at their leisure. This virtual platform also provides our Brunei business partners such as hoteliers the opportunity to market their products globally 24/7, enabling new markets and attracting more visitors to our shores.

In other development, we are upgrading our business class lounge, SkyLounge, at Brunei International Airport. We wish to apologise in advance to our Business Class guests and Royal Skies members for any inconvenience caused. We trust when the works are completed, the expanded and upgraded product will meet and exceed your expectations.

We are happy to share that we recently expanded our network with new codeshare flights to Cebu with Philippine Airlines, as well as converting Seoul (Incheon) flights from charter to scheduled from this October. This shows our confidence in this growth market to Brunei. For more information, you can visit

And last but not least, a sincere word of thanks to you for flying with RB today and, for our part, we will continue do our best to continue to earn your support in the future.

Betterfly Royal Brunei.


Warmest regards,
Karam Chand
Chief Executive Officer
