Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has launched its newly refurbished and rebranded office in Singapore at UE Square Shopping Mall. Brunei High Commissioner in Singapore, His Excellency Haji Awang Saifulbahri bin Haji Awang Mansor was the Guest of Honour during the launch event yesterday.
The event provided an opportunity to showcase the new RB heritage inspired uniform collection to be worn by customer service staff:
The uniform colours ranges from olive to morning sky and fresh mint and are designed to reflect the friendly and welcoming nature of the people of Brunei Darussalam and RB brand.
Commenting on the launch, Deputy Chairman, Dermot Mannion said: ‘This is the latest phase in our network wide rebranding process which began eighteen months ago with the arrival of our state of the art Dreamliner fleet. Already our Friday/Sunday Dreamliner service to/from Singapore has been very well received and this service is set to continue.
For services on other days of the week, Singapore customers can look forward to the deployment of new A320 aircraft later in the year, with rebranded interiors and high levels of passenger comfort and amenity.”
RB currently operates a fleet of ten aircraft comprising, four B787-800 Dreamliners together with four A320 and two A319 units. RB also has one further B787-800 Dreamliner on order and recently signed a contract with Airbus for up to ten A320neo aircraft, with deliveries from 2017. The airline is anticipating the arrival of two new leased A320 aircraft in September/October 2015.
Last year, RB was the launch airline in South East Asia for Boeing 787 Dreamliner and RB also now has the distinction of operating the youngest long haul fleet in the world. RB is also the first airline in the world to offer an exclusive Dreamliner service all the way from Melbourne to London via Brunei and Dubai, and return. From its hub at Brunei International Airport, RB serves a number of regional and international destinations in Australia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle East and UK.
