Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), Brunei’s national carrier, is celebrating a significant milestone starting this month with the 40th anniversary of the airline’s first commercial flight to Hong Kong. 40 years ago RB began flying to Hong Kong with a twice weekly service. Now RB operates daily flights to Hong Kong from its home base in Brunei Darussalam. In addition to normal services on Airbus 319/320 aircraft, due to high season demand, RB is delighted to upgrade a number of summer flights to ‘state of the art’ B787 Dreamliner aircraft.

In conjunction with RB’s 40 Years of Flight celebrations several key activities have been organized to build awareness about RB and Brunei involving Bruneian Superstar, Wu Chun, RB International Brand Ambassador. As a proud family man, entrepreneur and celebrity, Wu Chun is the embodiment of the graciousness and hospitality of the RB brand personality.

Wu Chun, in his ambassadorial role, has been featured in a number of activities and campaigns with his fans around Hong Kong and China. RB and Wu Chun recently organized “A day with RB and Wu Chun in Guangzhou” and “A day with Wu Chun at Manukan Island, Sabah, Malaysia” for Wu Chun’s fans from Hong Kong and China. Wu Chun also made a much anticipated and highly successful personal appearance at RB travel trade roadshow in Guangzhou, China. Fun games and activities were held for fans and visitors. In Hong Kong, RB signature buses with Wu Chun images have already been launched. Other activities planned with Wu Chun are roadshows in Shanghai and Shenzen happening in June this year.

Last evening, RB together with GSA – DEKS Air and Wu Chun jointly hosted a dinner in Hong Kong to celebrate 40 years of flight.
