Royal Brunei will not function nonstop between London and Bandar Seri Begawan.
Efficient November 1 Royal Brunei will function to Bandar by way of Dubai, because it did till 2018.
It’s anticipated to achieve fifth-freedom rights between London-Dubai and vice versa as occurred earlier than.
It signifies that if authorized, Royal Brunei will probably provide eager fares by the journey commerce.
That is excellent news for economy-minded company travellers and the various expats primarily based within the UAE.
Thrice weekly schedules by B787 are:
BI 98 London Heathrow-Dubai 1700-0415 (following day)
BI 98 Dubai-Bandar Seri Begawan 0545-1730
BI 97 Bandar Seri Begawan-Dubai 2025-0110 (following day)
BI 97 Dubai-London Heathrow 0300-0720
Observe that flights depart London each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
Flights depart Bandar Seri Begawan each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Why cease en-route when its B787 can fly nonstop?
I believe it’s as a result of Royal Brunei can unfold its dangers by overlaying two locations with one flight.
Secondly, making an en-route cease means higher gasoline consumption as a result of every sector is what the previous CEO of Air Asia X (Osman bin Rani) mentioned was the “candy spot” [for efficient fuel consumption].
Two factors to notice:
- On the time of writing the schedules have been inputted into Royal Brunei’s reserving engine however no London-Dubai reservations are presently attainable.
- Royal Brunei is a dry airline. Prior to now it has allowed passengers to convey their very own drinks on board. Because the scenario can change I might recommend readers verify at time of reserving.
