The flag carrier airline of the Sultanate of Brunei, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) flies to 16 major cities across four continents, including London, Dubai, Melbourne, Manila and most recently Bali. In December 2013, RB became the first and only airline to guarantee a Boeing 787 Dreamliner service on all long-haul flights, as well as the only airline to operate a daily Dreamliner flight from London Heathrow to Dubai, flying on to Brunei and Melbourne.
Paul Wait, chief executive of the GTMC commented: “We are thrilled to welcome Royal Brunei Airlines into the fold as the latest industry partner to join our diverse and ever expanding network. The airline now has representation at members’ meetings and on specialist working parties, in addition to priority access to senior contacts within member and partner companies which I am sure they’ll make use of to their full advantage.”
Adiel Mambara, Sales and Marketing Manager UK, Royal Brunei Airlines added, “We look forward to working closely with the GTMC to highlight the benefits of our business traveller offering in conjunction with its members. The recent overseas conference in Marrakech opened our eyes to the potential of what’s possible through working with the highly respected business travel industry organisation and we’re confident that this is the beginning of what will be an extremely fruitful partnership.”
