Royal Brunei Airlines has revamped the timing of London and Melbourne flights for the upcoming summer schedule as part of its efforts to better connect customers to beyond destinations in Europe and Australia/New Zealand.
Effective March 31st 2013, daily flights from London will now shift to an evening departure at 17:50.
This replaces the existing morning departure time, and will provide much better connections from UK domestic, continental Europe and USA to the RB network.
Daily arrival time at Melbourne is also improved to 05:00.
Again this will allow customers to transfer to Australian cities such as Sydney, Brisbane, and Adelaide, as well as to New Zealand on the same day.
Departure times from Brunei to Dubai/London and Melbourne to Brunei will remain unchanged in order to maintain existing connections to all parts of the RB network.
With this schedule change, customers will now have seamless same day connections in both directions without having to stay overnight in either London or Melbourne.
“We are very pleased to announce this new flight schedule and we truly believe RB is now better placed to offer the best choice for passengers wishing to travel in comfort and convenience to any of our destinations and beyond,” stated Dermot Mannion, Royal Brunei deputy chairman.
