Royal Brunei Airlines, RB's transformation as the National Airline and its brand-positioning as a boutique Carrier in the international markets continues with the launch of direct flights between Brunei and the United Kingdom. The Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and the Second Minister of Finance and Economy as the Chairman of the RB Board of Directors said that it is the first time the two countries that share common interests and values are connected with seamless direct flights. The significant initiative of RB will no doubt be a catalyst for increased travel, trade and tourism. Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Hj Mohd Amin Liew Bin Abdullah was speaking night of 27th October at the official launch of Rb's first ever non-stop flight to London.

Also in attendance were Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Mohammad Yusof, the Minister of Communications; His Excellency Richard Lindsay, United Kingdom's High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam; and Karam Chand, Rb's Chief Executive Officer. With the launch of the daily non-stop flights to London, RB ceases operations of its Dubai-London-Dubai route. RB will, however, continue to provide the vital link to the GCC via Dubai and offer four times weekly Brunei-Dubai-Brunei services effective from the 29th of October 2018.
