    Royal Brunei Airlines’ new Beijing flights to promote tourism

    Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) announced the commencement of ticket sales for the new route of Beijing. The first flight to Beijing is scheduled on October 27. RB is one of the first of few international airlines selected to operate to the new state-of-the-art Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) in phase one of the new airport opening.

    The four times weekly flights to Beijing is part of RB’s efforts to grow its footprint in China, the number one tourism source market for Brunei. RB also introduced flights to Haikou, Nanning, Hangzhou and Changsha. RB plans to increase the flight frequency to Beijing Daxing to daily from January 14, 2020.

    RB Chief Executive Officer Karam Chand said, “We are delighted to provide the key capital city to capital city connection and fulfil our promise to connect Brunei and Beijing once again.

    As Brunei’s national carrier, the reintroduction of Beijing flights supports our network development and builds on strong bilateral relationship between the two countries. Beijing presents a huge opportunity for us in one of the fastest growing markets and hence, our plan to increase to daily flights around Chinese New Year 2020. “The new service will serve the government, corporate and leisure guests well, who have been seeking a direct link. This has been made possible with the best in class A320neo aircraft.

    “We are grateful to the Chinese Government for connecting our cities and facilitating tourism and trade between China and Brunei.

    “We are exploring options to have a Chinese airline collaborate with us via codeshare arrangement on this route. The China market has fundamentally changed in the past with high growth in free and independent travellers. These potential customers do their own research and generally book online including airline websites. We have made significant investments in launching a Chinese language website and are introducing both AliPay and WeChat as payment solutions for our guests.

    These new solution will be available effective today. We are doing everything to ensure Brunei and RB information is readily available and the booking process is seamless for our guests,” Chand added.
