Royal Brunei Airlines (RBA) is reportedly set to expand, with prospective plans to revive flights to and from Sydney and add Melbourne to its network.
According to MICEBTN, the expansion will also involve a fleet update and comes as new chief executive Robert Yang takes the reins.
The carrier’s ageing B767 fleet will be replaced with new B777s by mid-2010 and 787 Dreamliners by late 2013 and 737-800s from 2011.
Next year, possible new routes will include flights to Ujung Padang (Indonesia) and Penang (Malaysia) and a return of services to Sydney and Shanghai.
Routes to Melbourne, Bahrain, Los Angeles, Frankfurt, Narita, Chennai, and Beijing are anticipated to be added from 2011.
The carrier is also expected to add non-stop flights to London in the second half of 2012 and to Los Angeles in 2013 with the delivery of new aircraft.
I would love to see 737-800 in RBA colours. I think it's a good move if RBA get this. I love the lines of the 737-800 with winglets.
