Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) recently announced that it is suspending flights to China and reduce the number of flights to select destinations in February and March.

In a press statement, the airline said that the demand for air travel between Brunei, China and Hong Kong has declined significantly following the novel coronavirus outbreak and various travel restrictions.

The demand for other routes, it added, has also been impacted to varying levels.

Details of the affected flights are as follows which can be found in RB’s website.

Note: (1) Schedule is subject to change and is right during the time of publication; (2) “v.v.” means vice versa, and (3) All other routes are operating as per published schedule.

“As the national carrier, we will continue to provide travel options to China via various cities on our network and with our airline partners,” RB said.

RB further said that some temporary flight consolidation on other routes is necessary during this significantly reduced demand period.

“We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments as necessary. Guests on affected flights will also be contacted by RB Customer Service Centre in the coming days for alternative flight arrangements,” the airline said. – Analisa Amu
