BSB? Brasilia in Brazil?


Will this means there will be first international flight between SBW and BWN? I hope this route can sustain as BWN can be a good alternative to KUL and SIN for those travelling abroad from Sarawak. I noticed few months ago, BI had good price for flight from LHR to KUL at less than £400 return.

Not rumours but confirmed. Last service for AK will be this Sunday. Not surprised though, early morning flights are hard to compete with the timings offered by BI  (majority of Bruneians treat KK as a quick getaways, head to the airport after school/ work ends on a friday and back by sunday evening).

thanks for the confirmation. beside Bruneians, local Sabahan fly it quite often and transit to Dubai, London, and Melbourne.

This should be AK second time closing BKI-BWN route.

I somehow think BI A320 flight will continue, Bruneians tend to buy a lot of stuff from KK. 15kg is just insufficient for them.

Sarawakians from Miri, Sibu, Kuching and Bintulu are going to love this. Many of them working in the O&G and hospitality sector in Brunei.
