Royal Brunei Airlines

New dynamic packaging service available on its website

Working with travel technology provider Amadeus and Middle East-based agency Cozmo Travel, Royal Brunei Airlines has launched a dynamic packaging service on its website.

The online booking service is aimed both at the trade and at consumers, TTG Media reports.

There are two types of packages available – a holiday package including flights, hotels, transfers and tours, and a stopovers package in Brunei or Dubai.

The system also includes promotional deals from hotels and tour operators.

“Royal Brunei Airlines is proud to have launched our online packaging system. This intuitive and holistic offering will streamline the booking process for our guests and take the stress out of having to book through several operators,” says Karam Chand, its chief executive.

“Agents are also a hugely important part of our operations and this new product will make their lives easier, as well as strengthening our position in the market.”

Alcohol rules
The government-owned Brunei national carrier was founded in 1974 and now operates a fleet of 10 aircraft to 16 destinations. In Europe it flies to London Heathrow, a route it launched in 1991. Among its codeshares is an agreement with Turkish Airlines.

All meals served on board Royal Brunei’s flights are halal and it doesn’t serve alcohol on board. Uniquely, however, it does allow passengers to bring along their own alcohol for consumption on the planes. But, on landing in Brunei, all alcohol is taken away from passengers.
