Royal Brunei Airlines is returning to Taipei

9 Aug 2018 by Craig Bright

Royal Brunei Airlines will be reviving its scheduled non-stop services to Taipei this December 3, almost 15 years since the carrier last operated flights to the island in 2004.

The new route will be flown three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Flights out of Brunei will depart in the morning with an early afternoon arrival in Taipei, while flights on the return leg will take off mid-afternoon and arrive back in Brunei in the early evening.

Flight No. From To Departs Arrives Days
BI451 Brunei (BWN) Taipei (TPE) 1015 1345 Mon, Thu, Fri
BI452 Taipei (TPE) Brunei (BWN) 1500 1830 Mon, Thu, Fri

Flights are currently available to book, with business class fares starting at BND2,438 (US$1,788) for business class and BND783 (US$) for economy, including taxes and fees.

The route will be served by Royal Brunei’s Airbus A320 aircraft, though it is not clear whether it will be the carrier’s older A320 or its newer A320neo that will be deployed. Both variants offer 12 business class seats that are laid out in a 2-2 configuration.

Royal Brunei took delivery of its first A320neo back in May.

Business Traveller took an in-depth look at how the new aircraft differs from its predecessor here.
