CEO’S Mes­sage


Muhibah - - IN THIS ISSUE -

Wel­come aboard Royal Brunei Air­lines (RB). It is my great hon­our to ex­tend our heart­felt con­grat­u­la­tions and best wishes to His Majesty Sul­tan Haji Has­sanal Bolkiah Mu‘iz­zaddin Wad­daulah, Sul­tan and Yang Di-per­tuan Ne­gara Brunei Darus­salam, and the peo­ple of Brunei, on the 36th Na­tional Day cel­e­brated on 23 Fe­bru­ary, 2020.

We are very proud to fea­ture His Royal High­ness Prince ‘Ab­dul Mateen in our cover story. We are very grate­ful to His Royal High­ness Prince Mateen for shar­ing his thoughts and ad­vice on adopt­ing healthy life­styles. The full in­ter­view can be found in the In-per­son sec­tion at page 52.

Like pre­vi­ous years, in con­junc­tion with Na­tional Day as well as Brunei Gas­tron­omy Week launched on 19 Fe­bru­ary, 2020, we in­tro­duced a spe­cial Bruneian meal se­lec­tion for our guests fly­ing with us from

23 to 25 Fe­bru­ary, 2020. We trust you will en­joy the Bruneian culi­nary de­lights on­board and many more choices on of­fer at the var­i­ous par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants in Brunei. You can read more about this in the In­side RB sec­tion of the magazine.

In line with the Na­tional Day theme of “Achiev­ing the Na­tional Vi­sion”, RB has re­cently com­pleted the ren­o­va­tion of our two hangars at Brunei In­ter­na­tional Air­port (BIA). Th­ese hangars al­low us to carry out main­te­nance work in­clud­ing c-checks on our new tech­nol­ogy fleet of B787/a320­neo air­craft and also pro­vide of­fice space and sup­port­ing in­fra­struc­ture for the vast ma­jor­ity of our Op­er­a­tions Team. Launch­ing in April 2020, RB Han­gar 1 will fea­ture the RB Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence where train­ing will be con­ducted in ar­eas such as air­craft en­gi­neer­ing, safety man­age­ment, ground han­dling, ser­vices and prod­ucts, and for the de­vel­op­ment of RB team mem­bers across the busi­ness. We have also added a Staff Café aptly named the Hub Café (Brunei is our hub air­port) for our staff based at Han­gar 1, Han­gar 3, BIA, and other team mem­bers based air­side.

Lastly, a sin­cere thank you for choos­ing to fly with RB. We look for­ward to earn­ing your con­tin­ued loy­alty into the fu­ture.

Team RB at Brunei Na­tional Day pa­rade 23 Fe­bru­ary, 2020.

Warm­est re­gards, Karam Chand Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer
