Brunei holidaymakers are spending hours in extra-long check-in queues at the Brunei International Airport (BIA), due to an increase in air travel during the current season.

Last Sunday, long queues could be seen snaking around the airport.

One traveller said that some of them had been standing in the line since 7am.

On its website, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) reminded passengers that early check-ins and baggage drop services for RB evening flights are available from noon at the BIA on the day of travel, to allow for a faster check-in process.

Online check-in is also available, 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure time.
