Dear Guests,

Welcome aboard Royal Brunei Airlines (RB).

RB was established on 18 November, 1974 and in this issue of Muhibah we celebrate our 40th anniversary. In Brunei Darussalam, the event will be marked by a traditional blessing ceremony. In addition, RB will also be hosting a gala awards night to recognise the loyalty and dedication of staff who have completed 30 years of service. This event will also provide us with an opportunity to showcase our newly refurbished Royal Brunei Recreation Club, which now provides state of the art facilities for the enjoyment of members, staff and their families.

Among the award recipients will be Joan Lim, Head of Commercial Services; Hjh Hajijah Hj Abas, Traffic Services Controller and Captain Jaidin Hj Timbang, Line Captain – all proud employees of no less than 35 years of service. We salute their record of achievement with RB in this pioneering period and you can read their inspiring stories on page 56.

Our 40th Anniversary celebrations got under way in October with RB’s first annual charity run called ‘The Great Race’. This fun event, which contained a number of novelty obstacles for participants to negotiate, was a great success attracting more than 3,500 entries of all ages including a large number of VIPs, visitors, staff and families.

The other exciting announcement for RB is the impending arrival of two new Airbus A320 aircraft into service in the second half of 2015. This announcement marks the commencement of our short haul fleet renewal process, ahead of the later arrival of up to 10 highly fuel-efficient A320neo aircraft.

Brunei is the gateway to the huge rainforest of Borneo and we look forward to creating a new eco-friendly tagline of ‘Fly RB A320NEO to BorNEO’.

Today you may be travelling with us on our new, four times weekly service to Ho Chi Minh City. The return of RB on this route creates more holiday options for Bruneians. In addition, our regional and long haul customers especially from Melbourne, Dubai and London now have the opportunity to experience the tranquility of Brunei followed by the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.

Finally, a sincere thank you for flying with RB today and, for our part, we will continue do our best to earn your support in the future.

With warm wishes,
Dermot Mannion
Deputy Chairman
