Royal Brunei Airlines has announced that it plans to resume direct flights to Beijing from December after 20 years.

The service will begin with a twice weekly service, with a third added “at the earliest opportunity”. The flight will be delivered aboard an Airbus A320 CEO. Departures from Brunei will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while return flights leave every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The resumption of flights is subject to governmental approval and Royal Brunei’s ability to acquire landing slots in Beijing.

Karam Chand, CEO of Royal Brunei, said: “RB last flew to Beijing two decades ago and we are delighted to be connecting the capital cities once again. As a national carrier of Brunei Darussalam, the re-introduction of Beijing flights supports the network development and builds on the strong bilateral trade relationship between the two countries.”
