Update on BI098 flight from Dubai to Bandar Seri Begawan 3 April 2023

We are providing a status update on our passengers of BI098 at Muscat International Airport.

Some passengers were re-routed onto an earlier flight from MCT to their intended destinations, and those who could get any seats and were able to get entry visa approved were accommodated to hotels.   While the remainder were accommodated at the airport transit hotel.  Please be assured the safety of our passengers and operations is of paramount importance.

Our contracted engineer arrived at Muscat International Airport earlier to do the inspections and rectification of the engine issues.  We were informed that the left engine solenoid banks were overheated, and these are the ones need to be replaced.  Our engineers are currently on their way to Muscat to support the rectification.  We are now waiting for the spare parts to arrive and for the plane to be made operational soon after.  It is estimated to be back serviceable by 1800LT.

We will endeavor to provide update once they are available.  If you have any concerns or questions regarding this update, please get in touch with us at +673 2212222 or on Facebook at @royalbruneiair
