Dear Guests,

Welcome aboard Royal Brunei Airlines (RB). This is the first edition of Muhibah for 2016 and I extend my best wishes to all passengers for a healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year.

A very popular feature in past Muhibah issues has been our focus on staff in different areas of the organisation. Feedback suggests that readers really enjoy this unique ‘behind the scenes’ look at how staff go about their duties with such pride and dedication. In this issue, the spotlight falls on our senior management team, who are geared up and ready to lead their respective teams into the New Year with great optimism. We are especially proud of the number of bright young Bruneians who have scaled the ranks in recent years to assume senior management positions. The future of RB is secure in their hands.

RB recently held our Staff Awards and Appreciation Night which was a very important event on the annual calendar. This yearly gala event provides us with the opportunity to honour the hard work of our staff and bestow special awards to our long service personnel. For the first time, RB was proud to be able to honour three staff members who have been loyal to RB since its inception. Joan Lim, Hjh Hajijah Hj Abas and Zainal Abidin Md Ali have now each completed 40 years of service. We congratulate each one of them for their dedication and extend our best wishes for their future.

In the year ahead, we look forward to continuing our partnership with Wu Chun, RB’s International Brand Ambassador. Wu Chun is a humble young Bruneian who has become a superstar in music, film and now, reality TV in China and around the region. I invite you to read his story (on page 54) that highlights his pride in his role as RB Ambassador and how much he has enjoyed the experience.

RB also begins the new year by marking 30 years of flying to Jakarta, Indonesia. The first flight took place on 3 January, 1986 and, with the support and loyalty of our staff and passengers, RB has retained Jakarta as a destination ever since.

Finally, a sincere word of thanks to one and all for choosing to fly with RB today and, for our part, we will do our very best to retain your support in the future.

With warm good wishes,
Dermot Mannion
Deputy Chairman
