Royal Brunei ups frequencies to Kuala Lumpur

FROM December 13, Royal Brunei Airlines will add three more flights a week to its Bandar Seri Begawan-Kuala Lumpur route, bringing the total number of weekly flights from seven to 10.

The three extra flights depart on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, doubling the number of flights to the Malaysian capital on these days. Scheduled to leave Kuala Lumpur at 12.20, they will touch down at Bandar Seri Begawan at 14.40.

M Nantha Gopal, managing director, Nantha Travel & Tours Kuala Lumpur, said the additional flights would benefit traffic both ways, with Bruneians using Kuala Lumpur as a transit point, and Malaysians flying Royal Brunei Airlines to connect to Bandar Seri Begawan and other cities in the airline’s network.

Gopal added that Royal Brunei Airlines offered attractive connections via Bandar Seri Begawan “where airfares could be a bit cheaper compared to other commercial carriers”.

Ganneesh Ramaa, manager, Luxury Tours Malaysia, said the additional flights are also an avenue for travellers from Australia, China and the UK to travel to Kuala Lumpur and beyond via Bandar Seri Begawan.

He said: “(The increase in frequencies) is timely for the peak inbound year-end travel season. We will promote city tours in Kuala Lumpur as well as nature tours to Taman Negara National Park, Cameron Highlands and Penang.”
