Royal Brunei Airlines has announced it will purchase four Boeing 787 Dreamliners to renew its widebody fleet. Its selection of the 787-9 supports the airline’s long-term growth strategy, sustainability goals and focus on passenger comfort.

“The forthcoming arrival of the 787-9 Dreamliner symbolises a bold step forward in our ongoing journey toward innovation and excellence,” said Sabirin bin Haji Abdul Hamid, CEO, Royal Brunei Airlines. “Royal Brunei Airlines has been operating the 787-8 for the last 10 years and this order will ensure we continue with a product that our customers have come to enjoy. In our constant effort to offer unparalleled service matched with the highest safety standards to our guests, the new fleet will allow us the potential to tap into new growth areas, strengthening our market appeal and enabling us to provide a superior travel experience to our guests.”

Enhanced comfort features of the 787 family include air that is more humid and pressurised at a lower cabin altitude, as well as technology that counters turbulence. The 787 Dreamliner family also reduces fuel use and emissions by up to 25% compared to the aircraft it replaces.

“By renewing its investment in the 787 Dreamliner, Royal Brunei Airlines will continue to connect Brunei with the world while offering the carrier’s signature service and comfort to passengers,” said Brad McMullen, Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales and Marketing, Boeing. “The 787-9 will deliver the versatility, efficiency and range that Royal Brunei Airlines desires to pursue increasing air travel and tourism opportunities.”
