Royal Brunei reviews Jeddah flights

Flights to Jeddah in March are under review following new regulations introduced by the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) of Saudi Arabia, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) stated in a press release yesterday adding that more details will be released on March 2.

BI001 from Brunei to Jeddah today and BI002 returning the same day will operate as scheduled with restrictions for outbound travellers to Jeddah including, but not exclusive to, suspended entry for the purpose of Umrah and suspended entry to those with a tourist visa who have visited countries in which the spread of coronavirus is deemed a danger, the release added.

RB will continue to monitor the situation across the region closely and will make adjustments as necessary in line with the relevant country regulations and demand changes.
